Logic and illogic

“This is illogical,” says Chuckles.

Let’s examine that claim.

1. George Bush should be credited for there being no terrorist attacks in the US since 9/11. (Even though there probably has been at least one successful and one unsuccessful one that the President did not stop.)

2. However, if there is a successful attack in the United States, George Bush should not be held responsible because he couldn’t have prevented it.

That’s obviously illogical. Either he can prevent them or he can’t. Which is it?

Also, numerous terrorist attacks that are not insurgency-related have taken place around the world since the two invasions. Spain, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt just to name four. Therefore, the absence of attacks in the USA cannot be wholly laid to the conquest and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq.
