    The support for our presence there and in Iraq will not last for long! I am so sick of the fringe of the GOP say “we must stay there as long as we can” So much for being fiscally responsible!

    I agree with the comment that terrorism seems primarily based in ideology, or cultural concepts that manage behavior, and that use unorthodox tools for their ‘military’ purposes.

    So in a culture used to wars with standard means the terror tactics favor victory over both standard military and civilians already domesticated by all means of their culture to the meaning conveyed with a single word, WAR. We have been pretty well informed by society’s communication tools to what WAR is. So elements of surprise will break through with ease. And just that ‘buzz word’ will have an effect on civilians and military, at any rank or field.

    The question should be WHY is happening rather than why are the strategies used not working, and why there seems to be an endless repertoire of strategies that go through the system with success?

    One has to also wonder why a society made of a culturally diverse population can neither come up with a good consensus strategy to counteract terrorism nor implement it successfully.

    Now, how can a society used to cultural terrorism (movies, etc) over reacts to it in reality or even rejects it as way of life?

    Seems to me that the message might be clear internally but is not getting aboard clearly, how come?

      If the cause is figured out the strategy/treatment is better tailored to treat the illnes, as well as monitor the whole system for variations of the same tactics by the causing agent(s).

      If what is presented as the treatment is wrong it would mean that the cause is the wrong one and the strategy is for something else, call it world governance, world bussinesses profit, slavery and population management, who knows what else.

      Because it is a world problem it follows that the objective is world wide.

    Unfortunately We are a Militarism State! By sending these brave souls to these wars and spending more money! We won’t get out of Afghanistan in the middle of next year! We still are in Iraq as well! Pretty soon we might invade Yemen and Iran! The only things that we create in this country the most are weapons and music! It’s just sad! We should create more products besides those! Our Freedoms are already being highjacked by these scanners!

      30 years minimum in the WoT, if we can afford it.

        Don’t mean to be so pesimistic! However we cannot afford much longer! We’re still borrowing money from other countries! I have read on yahoo news that the majority of Afghans support the surge in their country 71%, but in the South and East corner of that country! That the strategy isn’t working there!
        The Taliban has only 10% support of Afghans! Which sounds like good news! However 27% of them polled that they support the insurgency!

    No need to head out to the airport to show off your naked body.
    Naked body scanners are being readied to go mobile and scan you on the street, at football games and any other event where masses of people are congregated, according to a leaked paper written by Dutch authorities.

      Well, that would be the best attitude: stand strong on your ground, continue life.

      But it would be assuming that there’s no internal division or silly fight for who is better or correct on some political issues or has more manhood or is a true or false patriot.

      It is as if the people actually can’t get along because has never gotten along as a country. Now, that is a big contrast to what was apparent before, or recited.

      There are internal divisions, what is driving it and why?

      Any outsider that stands to gain from internal struggle will promote that openly or cowardly in some sneaky way that needs to be figured out.

      NWO or not, that is what is obvious, the bad part is that the population is the one loosing everything.

      The screw up can be bettered by holding common ground in the best interest of the country, not a party!

    Fantastic new interview on Larry Kings show. Mr Paul is exactly right. How many bumper stickers did we see during Bush’s presidency that said “Bush – Busy raising new terrorists for the next generation”. What will happen is, for the sake of safety all our constitutional rights will be taken. Whatever happened to that age old saying “If someone wants to get you there’s no way to stop them as long as they’re willing to lay down their life for yours”. Look at JFK for instance. You can’t stop them and trying to just creates more terrorists and anger. Diplomacy is what’s needed. What we need to fear is what we’re creating. Another tried and true saying “Be careful when fighting monsters that you don’t become one”. That really also fits. There is time to turn this around.

    BTW, Bernacke kept quoting Taylor in his recent speech in defense that rates had nothing to do with the melt-down. Taylor comes up and says Bernacke isn’t telling the truth. HAAA!!
