But...but...we haven't been attacked again since 9/11!

May I remind you that we've now lost about as many soldiers in Iraq as we lost civilians. Iraqis have lost something like 8 to 20 times as many civilians. Terrorist attacks have skyrocketed since 9/11 worldwide. We weren't attacked for five years before 9/11 either on U.S. soil, unless you count the Oklahoma City bombing.

What, you want a smug response to this canard? OK, how about: that's like saying we didn't get robbed again since we started leaving stacks of $100 bills on the corner every night.

Any other good metaphors?
