Ahmed Shah Massoud was assassinated on September 9, 2001, by two al-Qaeda agents posing as Belgian journalists. If you do not know who Massoud was, or why Osama bin Laden believed (rightly) that it was vital that he be killed before al-Qaeda's blow fell upon the United States two days later, then you should find out. In the meantime, you should remain quiet when others discuss the war in Iraq, or the War on Terror, as you are not entitled to an opinion. Please refrain also from voting in any federal election, as you are not qualified to do so.
But for goodness sake don't worry. While you and your friends are discussing the relative merits of Lindsay Lohan's most recent plastic surgery, al-Queda and its allies around the world are carefully, methodically, relentlessly, and competently planning to kill you, to kill your children, and to kill your parents.
Have a nice day.
