Mission Accomplished?

Here is an Osama observation made in 2004:

“All that we have to do is to send two mujahedeen to the furthest point east to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al Qaeda, in order to make generals race there to cause America to suffer human, economic and political losses without their achieving anything of note other than some benefits for their private corporations," bin Laden said.

Bin laden went on to say, “"We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah,"

And this bin Laden historical observation, “"We, alongside the mujahedeen, bled Russia for 10 years until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat,"

In the article Osama estimates that the cost of the 9/11/2001 attacks was US$500,000 or one half of a million dollars. It is safe to say that America has spent at least one trillion dollars fighting Osama and his boys since then and that would suggest a ratio of about US$2,000,000 spent by America for every $1 spent by Osama and his gang. An astounding ratio of 2,000,000: 1.

Now, let us remind our readers again of the of the US debt on certain dates:

9/11/2001 – $ 5.8 trillion (attack on World Trade Center)

5/1/2003 -- $ 6.5 trillion (Bush II speech “Mission Accomplished)

5/2/2011 – $14.3 trillion (Obama puts bullet in Osama’s head)

5/1/2012 – $15.6 trillion (Obama crows about bullet in Osama’s head)

Today, April 16, 2013:  $16.8 trillion (Yes, that's correct - as Mr. Obama claims to be cutting back and "responsibly" managing the American economy, the debt has risen $1.2 trillion in less than one year.)
So, we pause before we say what should be obvious to even a casual observer.

Osama stated his mission quite clearly as noted above. If you find even a passing causal relationship between debt and bankruptcy, you would need to conclude that those in charge of America’s borrowing/debt situation for the last 11 years are he** bent on fulfilling Mr. Osama’s prediction. We at TheFundamentals find ourselves almost speechless in writing this observation but we darn well would suggest a rather rapid reconsideration of the deficit spending/massive borrowing path bin Laden laid out for us and that we are so willingly pursuing. Alas, we have been so suggesting for some time now but the debt just gets bigger and bigger.

America’s leaders are fulfilling Osama’s mission on their own. Terrifying thought that the bad guys will ultimately be able to unfurl Bush II’s banner from the 5/1/2003 USS Abraham Lincoln speech and use it just as Osama predicted.

Note to Readers - Much of this essay was first posted on May 1, 2012.   Nothing has changed; we now set out to locate and bring a new group of terrorists to justice.  Certain prediction:  debt will rise;  physical security will decline and the freedoms and liberty that we, the people, live for will continue to disappear under the burden of debt and government bureaucrat involvement in all aspects of our lives.

And in light of yesrterday's Boston event, it's now possible to say it's all worth the security we've been getting isn't it?
