Sobering Thought Of The Day

"By the time night falls on Sept. 11, Osama bin Laden will have been at large for 1,461 days.

"America vanquished world fascism in less time. We obtained Germany's surrender in 1,243 days and Japan's in 1,365. Even the third Punic War, in which Carthage was burned to the ground and emptied of citizens, lasted only around 1,100 days."

Michael Tomasky, in the American Prospect magazine.

The British found the people responsible for the Subway bombings in no time at all. Turn the hunt for Bin Laden over to them, and they'll have him in custody in a matter of days.
