Terror On The Web

Sometimes it's not one thing or the other, it's one thing and the other.

Thing 1: This news article here, now making the rounds at a number of Left-wing sites as proof of Bush's failure vs terror:

More than two-thirds of the people living in Australia, Britain and Italy - three countries allied with the United States in the Iraq war - believe the war has increased the threat of terrorism.
Thing 2: Now compare the story above to this one below:
BRITONS are more scared of spiders than terrorist attacks and death, a survey shows.
So, the War On Terror has increased the threat to the point where it's now almost as scary as ... a house spider?

Spiders are good for the earth; terrorists are not. Methinks people actually know this fact quite well, even if hard-rudder pollsters do not.
