What I just learned from CNN:
6 years after 9/11 there have been no terror attacks here in the United States.
Yeah. And I'm guessing that's because the bad people clued in early on that, if they wanted to kill Americans, they didn't have to procure fake visas, sneak into the U.S., take pilot lessons and then plow large flying objects into tall buildings.
Instead, nowadays (and with much less fuss and bother), they can simply wander down the road outside of Baghdad, plant a few roadside IEDs and watch the subsequent mayhem and airborne body parts.
I believe that's what you call "effective resource management."
