    It sure seems that way. Agencies and bureaucracies have a way of justifying their existence.

    The truth is that the average American has a greater chance of being struck by lightning or killed in an automobile or train accident than he has of being the victim of a "terrist attack".

    Why is it that we are told that the rule of law must be suspended to defend against the latter, but not the former?

    I like how people probably tucked safely away in institutions presume all the world is really a safe place. The lack of perspective is fun.

    You should go to Afghan, Paki or somewhere like that and see if terrorism is all a fraud.

    Life is dangerous. A friend of mine just perished by crashing his airplane into the ground. Took his 2 daughters with him.

    I did the Southeast Asia thing 40 years ago. The term "terrorist" had not yet been coined for the public anxiety, but it was the same crazy kind of thinking--oh, the world is going to end if we don't kill 55,000 americans and many times more yellow-skinned people. I was there--it was silly then and it's silly now. Fear-mongering at its best, to justify the use of military force.

    It appears that the conspiracy theory denizens have once again escaped the confines of the forum designed to contain them.

    Such "arguments" make the whole forum look stupid. What an embarrassment.

    There's no word in English which adequately describes how stupid that is.

    But, Eco -- those Joos are the mother of all conspiracies!

    If one sold arms to the Taliban, that PROVES that they can't be trusted, and that terrorism is just a figment of the imagination they created in order to fool us all in that scheming, conniving way they have!

    You aren't forgetting the word "psychotarded", are you?
