It is hard to believe nearly seven years after 9/11 and the search for Bin Laden that he may be dying of kidney disease. Bin Laden will, of course, be a martyr to his minions. For at least two of those years directly after 9/11, I looked on the Internet every single day sometimes in the wee hours of the morning to see if our forces captured that monument to evil. What a colossal disappointment and an example of team Bush's utter ineptitude that after so many years Bin Laden may be dying of natural rather than US military causes.

This country looks impotent as the REAL perpetrator of the horrors of 9/11 lives out his natural life. His henchmen breath free too while the US got embroiled in an endless unnecessary war in Iraq for oil completely unrelated to 9/11. The war goes on in perpetuity with even one presidential candidate, John McCain, supposedly with foreign policy as his strong suit, saying we could be an occupying force for 100 years. The devaluation of the dollar while we borrow ad infinitum to pay for this war, the waste of this country's resources not to mention the incalculable expenditure life is unfathomable and utterly disgusting!

Our entire foreign policy MUST be revisited. Oil must be eliminated as humanity's existential holy grail for survival. Alternative sources must be developed quickly. Wars for oil such as Iraq I and II with its attendant quagmire and intercontinental maze of bad policy puts our nation and the world at great risk.
