Between now and November, a lot of things are going to happen, and I believe that by this time next year, the American public’s going to have a very different view of this war, and it will be because, I think, of some unfortunate events, that like we’re seeing unfold in the UK. But I think the American public’s going to have a very different viewAvedon correctly notes that GOP politicians seem to really look forward to a terrorist attack happening in the USA. They know that their political strategy depends upon thousands of Americans getting injured and dying in explosions and falling buildings. That's why the recent arrests of "terrorists" in Florida, near Fort Dix and in New York were hyped so much, at least at first. Americans have started to decide that they don't trust Republicans to handle national security the way they used to, so the DHS and the FBI trot out these "terror cells" of people so dumb and delusional that blowing up an anthill would have been a major accomplishment for them. But even that's not working. Even these high-profile arrests, the headlines blaring the presence of terrorists - foreign! terrorists - hasn't been enough for Americans to come running back to the embrace of the GOP.
