Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

Americans are idiots.
They change fears quicker than the GOP changes front-running primary candidates.
In the last 12 months the "top threat" has been, alternately, Iran, China, Russia, ISIS, Barack Obama, Ebola, and/or cyberwarfare.
If China invades Taiwan tomorrow then all of a sudden the media will be reporting that China is our biggest threat and the sheep will believe it, and if the week after there's a Measles outbreak in Peoria and the media shifts fire people will think that infectious disease is our biggest threat.
If our government does ANYTHING based on what "people" think we're doomed.
There's a reason the Founding Fathers didn't give the "huddled masses yearning to breath free" the right to vote.
Our government is beholden to a nation of people whose homes are underwater, who struggle to find minimum wage jobs, and who can't calculate compound interest rates, if they even know what those are.
Americans are the biggest threat to America.
Everything else is slight of hand.

“Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
