American Overpass Attackers go Global

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

Two days ago, on Sunday June 10th, unseen attackers demolished an overpass in Iraq near Mahmoudiya. On Monday they attacked another bridge in Diyala province.

Take careful note of the similarities:

  • They demolished a highway overpass – an interntationally recognized symbol of commerce and stability.
  • They attacked using an explosives-laden truck.
  • The driver of the vehicle cannot offer any useful information.
  • 4,000 jews avoided the overpass in the hours before the attack.

Is it any wonder that the terrorists – emboldened by our inaction and appeasement – have decided to export their effective tactics to the rest of the world? We cannot afford continued complacency. We must fight them “over here” before they force us to fight them “over there”.
