Bring back 9-11! 

Were there any Londoners who missed the Blitz after World War II? Any Russians who pined for another Stalingrad? How about Cambodians reminiscing about the good old days of the Killing Fields?
Yet there are wingnuts in the United States who want thousands of innocent Americans to die in another 9-11 attack, just so they can feel like warriors again.
Following is the most bizarre exchange I think I have ever read:
Michael Scheuer: The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States. Because it's going to take a grass-roots, bottom-up pressure. Because these politicians prize their office, prize the praise of the media and the Europeans. It's an absurd situation again. Only Osama can execute an attack which will force Americans to demand that their government protect them effectively, consistently, and with as much violence as necessary.
Glen Beck: Which is why, I was thinking this weekend, if I were him, that would be the last thing I would do right now.
Fiendishly clever, these terrorists -- they drive Glen Beck and his ilk around the bend by NOT ATTACKING!
Keep up the good work.
