2. The U.S. boots up its gazillion dollar war machine and lumbers over to point A.
3. We leave point A, go to point B, and repeat the process...
Seems like his plan is working
SO true. Actually, all the "few terrorists" have to do is show up at location A, say "I'm a terrorist" and the US media will talk about it 24/x7 for the next month. All the politicians will react to the horrible threat, pass new laws, throw everyone who has any relatives of the same sex as the terrorists in jail. etc.
We will then triple the security theater that makes it impossible to travel. Grannies will be strip searched going to the mall. The economy goes into recession or worse. Then step 2 of Bert's plan goes into effect.....
