Blair: World Asleep After 9/11

I disagree with Mr. Blair's assessment that the world fell asleep after 9/11. In fact, I don't think there has been a time where terrorism has been more on the front page of everything. Here in the U.S. we will not let terrorism into the back pages of a newspaper, certainly President Bush won't, since it is his strongest and possibly his only source of large support from the public. No, the world didn't fall asleep. What I think happenned was that the focus of terrorism was placed almost entirely on the United States and its interests. Now with the war in Iraq, U.S. allies are also targets, i.e. Great Britain. The world cannot fall asleep to terrorism when it is constantly happening. What is extremely clear is the fact you can fight it, but you will not stop it. Justifying the success of some of these attacks by suggesting we were not paying attention is an insult to the people who spend countless hours, days, weeks, trying to decipher all the intelligence that comes in. The odds that we would successfully stop an attack are against us and we can only do our best.
