Do you think that the U.S. 'war on terrorism' has actually strengthened radical groups such as al-Qaeda?And the results are: yes at 74% and no at 26%.
I always find it amusing that Canadians love to point out how uninformed Americans are. We're always told that Americans only elected G.W. because they didn't know any better and that they had been brainwashed by Foxnews.
Of course all these jabs imply that Canadians could never fall for such silly tricks. We're worldly, educated, wise beyond our years... blah, blah, blah.
So how well are Canadians, or at a minimum the twits who read the G&M, informed? From Time we have:
Al-Zarqawi's aide also revealed that his boss, after pondering the absence of attacks in the U.S. in recent years, concluded that a lack of "willing martyrs" was to blame.So we have Zarqawi whining about a lack of bombers and these fools think G.W. has made the world less safe? I see. Does the fact that the only time we see bin Laden these days is when he is telling us who he endorses for president mean anything? And how about the fact that there have been no other terror attacks in the U.S. since 9/11 (knock on wood)?
So given all this we have three possible explanations for the poll results which are: 1) that the average G&M reader is a total idiot, 2) the G&M is failing to inform it's readers, or 3) the average G&M reader spend their lives shivering in terror at the world outside their door and conclude that their cowardice must be George's fault.
Take your pick.
