Time to get realistic about the under pants bombing

OK folks let’s get serious about the failed hijack attempt. It was not dodging a bullet. The bomber had poorly packed explosives in his underwear. The detonator did not set off the bomb and it set his pants on fire.
It was more like a Cherry Bomb attack. If we want to live in an empire and send off drones that kill people while our soldiers sit in a nice cosy building somewhere, where they can order a pizza after a deadly kill, people are going to want to kill us back. And no matter what experts say, those bombs kill civilians and people living in those countries have complained about it.
According to The Wichita Eagle, “President Barack Obama scolded 20 of his highest-level officials on Tuesday over the botched Christmas Day terror attack on an airliner bound for Detroit, taking them jointly to task for "a screw-up that could have been disastrous" and should have been avoided”
The extra precautions are becoming ridiculous and a lot of people don’t even want to fly any more because of the endless delays. And there’s a no fly list that can include anyone who the government doesn’t like because of their religious or political beliefs.
Is this really the kind of country we want to live in? We have an empire propped up by puppet regimes protected by our sons and daughters acting as troops. We shower people who live as they did 300 years ago with high tech death machines.
If we want to keep our empire there are going to be civilian casualties from time to time. Get over it. Wipe the snot of off your nose, suck it up and get used to it.
