Stupidity at work. This is what happens when you put socialists in control.
I don’t know about you but it scares the crap out of me that the government of the United States was able to get away with doing this. A basic protection guaranteed in the Bill of Rights was being simply ignored. Think about it. You, an American citizen could be arrested and kept in prison for the rest of your life without ever having the benefit of a trial!
“The most worrying aspect is that this creates a principle of permission basically to do certain activities and it can be used to restrict activities,” he said. “It’s like a national ID system without the card.”
More inconvenient truths for Americans.
Somehow the facts don’t get reported in the news.
The government counts as unemployed only those who are actively looking for new jobs. As people have given up, the unemployment rate has declined – not because more people are working, but because more people have stopped looking for work.
I’m usually not one to believe most of this stuff, but there seems to be too much corroboration to ignore in this case. Yet again, we are protecting the interests of Saudis over Americans. I wonder why.
The more we learn about the Boston Marathon bombing–and the accused bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev–the more reason there is to doubt the wisdom of Obama’s drone-heavy approach to fighting terrorism. Not only did his hundreds of drone strikes fail to prevent the bombing; they’ve probably made this kind of terrorism–home-grown terrorism, committed by longtime residents of America–more likely.
I think that this attitude of “by killing terrorists we are creating terrorists” is nothing more than pacifistic BS. These people are going to make up things to get more recruits whether we are killing their leaders or not. By killing as many of them as we can, they at least aren’t out in the open recruiting in most places. The more you kill, the fewer there are. If you don’t try to do something about it and make them fear you, they will have nothing to fear. If we continue to let nations like Saudi Arabia openly create the type of atmosphere that promotes radical Islam and antisemitism with our full support we will continue to see the bin Laden’s of the world flourish.
Drones indeed save American lives. It’s much less risky for a drone to kill a terrorist than for a group of American sons to have to do it. Terrorists live among civilians for a reason. If you read the reports from soldiers who encounter them, the leadership is without exception cowardly. They encourage others to be martyr’s while they hide amongst women and children, unarmed most of the time, to try to look innocent when their time comes. bin Laden himself didn’t even have a loaded gun with him, but instead had women and children surrounding him for protection.
The war is in the media and stories like this are precisely what al Queda wants reported. Obama’s refusal to link Islam to terrorism is just another example of who political correctness is killing people around the world in the name of politics. It’s time to man up, call a spade a spade, and break some eggs.
Since Tor anonymizes traffic, that can be read as a presumption of guilt on anyone who anonymizes their Web activity.
As usual, a government wants to blame the tool rather than the perp.
