Does America Really Trust Republicans More For Addressing Terrorism?

Back in 2003, when the Bush Administration was pushing hard to invade Iraq because of their supposed weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and support for terrorism, several of our allies (including France) pointed out the danger in such action. They predicted instability and the likely development of terrorist organizations in the vacuum of power that would likely follow. They were right. Nevermind the fact that there were no WMDs and no evidence of Saddam Hussein supported al-Qaeda in any way.

So here we are, a dozen years later, dealing with ISIL, and the GOP thinks that Americans trust them more to deal with terrorism?

Sadly, this sounds about right.

Because the GOP is very good at spreading FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) and disinformation. They blame Obama for ISIL. They blame Obama for Iraq. They take credit for the death of Osama bin Laden and the severely weakened state of al-Qaeda. And way too many Americans fall for their lies.

And let us never forget the lack of insight it took to re-elect George W Bush because he “kept us safe.” As if the terrorist attacks on 9/11/01 happened on someone else’s watch.

We live in a very scary world. But not for the reasons that many think. Terrorism is not a huge threat to our country. Yes, it is a threat. But compared to so many other issues, the threat is minor. Continued involvement in other countries does create huge threats, however.
