First off, we feel bad about what happened with the space shuttle Columbia.
But, it could have been prevented.
On all the news broadcasts, the new buzz word, "security", has been tossed around all over the place. There's homeland security, of course and the shuttle went up under "heightened security". Well, did all the security checks, guards and other officials on duty happen to miss the Israeli guy boarding the damn shuttle?!?
Before we go any further, we need to get something out of the way. We're not racist in any way, shape or form.
Whites = OK
Blacks = OK
Asians = OK
Mexicans = OK
But for the life of me, I just can't - CAN NOT - bring myself to trust anyone from the Middle East at this time. Hell, if I were on vacation to somewhere in the Middle East and by some chance got recruited by the Al Quaeda (not sure if I spelled that right b/c I really don't want to spend the 5 seconds required to research it) I know for damn sure that I would try to stick a knife in Osama's back every chance I got. And they would do the same thing.
We work on theory here. At first, we didn't read too much into what happend. Then, one of the nameless and faceless reporters on the tele said "Well, there's no reason to think that this was the work of terrorists. Just because it happened over the home state of the President, near a town named Palestine and the shuttle was manned by the first ever Israeli astronaut doesn't mean that there was any foul play." Well I didn't think there was any...UNTIL THEN!
Come on. The only reason that the guy was ever let on board the shuttle in the first place was to show that the US is big hearted about what happened back in 2001 and that we have forgiven all transgressors...even though we're currently bombing the Hell out of them.
Well. Shit. Some really fun updates got pushed back because of this. So, be sure to check back this Thursday to lighten the mood up.
