    Hound

    The war on terror was invented by the Feds. The purpose is to demand more money and power from people. So when the intelligence and Pentagon are there, the terror will be there too. If there is none, they create one.

    Human have hound in their house to protect their family against the wolf. As the hound getting more power, they don't want to be guards any more. They want to be master. So the hound trained some wolf they captured. Let these agent wolf to attack and kill human. Human is frightened. They give hound whatever they demanded -money, power ..... Now hound become master. When they need something, they let the agent wolf have an attack on human, then said, this is a long war, to protect your lives, I need warrantless surveillance, more budget fund, torture prison.... . The hound repeated its demand, "This enemy has struck us, and they will strike again, and we'll give our folks the tools necessary to protect the country," if you don't then the hound "can not protect ourselves".

    That's why we saw after 10 years, occasionally a wolf or two were captured. But hundreds of thousands of innocent people died. There is an endless war to control people. A constant blackmail for more power.

    Parallels: A mission was attacked after warnings, Americans were killed after security requests were denied, and a diplomat went on TV to explain it all our current U.N. ambassador, after embassy bombings in 1998.

    'What troubles me so much is the Benghazi attack in many ways echoes the attacks on both embassies in 1998, when Susan Rice was head of the African region for our State Department," Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said Wednesday after two hours with our U.N. ambassador. "In both cases, the ambassador begged for additional security."

    In the spring of 1998, Prudence Bushnell, the U.S. ambassador to Kenya, sent an emotional letter to Secretary of State Madeleine Albright begging for a more secure embassy in the face of mounting terrorist threats and a warning that she was the target of an assassination plot.

    The State Department had repeatedly denied her request, citing a lack of money. But that kind of response, she wrote Albright, was "endangering the lives of embassy personnel."

    A matter of months later, on Aug. 7, 1998, the American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya were simultaneously attacked with car bombs. In Kenya, 12 American diplomats and more than 200 Africans were killed.

    [B]Which didn't count those killed in Tanzania either[/B]. Course you didn't think Georgie Boy was even close to the Repeated failures of the Democrats with deaths and injured with Embassies. Which doesn't even count that screw up in Somalia. Which happened under Bilbo's keen eyes.

    Notice the same excuses by the Democrats. Especially about that part about after they tightened up security and that part on.....Oh it will never happen again.
    Is anyone else seeing the pattern? Clinton, Bush, Obama....nothing has changed. Same crap, same wars, same dangers. The only thing that changes is the amount we are in debt to other countries. And that one isn't changing for the better.

    Maybe that means the US president doesn't control the world? That threats are complex and have a variety of causes and that one guy can't fix everything? That seems pretty obvious to me, but people always seem to come to the conclusion that there's some conspiracy to just not fix the problems. Very odd.

    Or that what we've been doing for decade upon decade upon decade measurably isn't working and continuing to work in this manner is absolutely irrational, mind numbing, and dangerous to ourselves and our liberty.

    Or it's not. What the US has been doing for decade upon decade worked quite well for quite some time. Is it not working as well now? Or are there other reasons why this would be a bigger problem? Think about it. Trying to blame one thing for a complex tapestry of actions, reactions, threats, trades, alliances, and belligerencies might just be a little myopic, no?

    Has it? Decades of war in the Middle East have solved terrorism or exacerbated it? Made our debt smaller, or expanded it? Caused government to increase is size and power particularly against our rights and liberties, or curtailed and limited it?

    The measurements are there, measurement tells reality. Decades of spinning our wheels and we have nothing but debt, more intrusive government, higher threats from terrorists, and more dead Americans to show for it. Can't argue against measurement.

    It hasn't solved it nor exacerbated it. But it has helped.

    Larger. Do you think the war on terror is the major reason for that?

    Caused government to increase is size and power particularly against our rights and liberties, or curtailed and limited it?
    lol you're one of those guys. Okay, nevermind lol

    The measurements are there, measurement tells reality.
    lol, no they don't, but you won't accept that, I can now tell.

    Decades of spinning our wheels and we have nothing but debt, more intrusive government, higher threats from terrorists, and more dead Americans to show for it. Can't argue against measurement.
    You keep saying decades but then you just went back one? I don't get it. When did this start? Maybe then you'll understand why I said it worked for quite some time. Since you're one of those guys, though, probably not.
