RULING THRU FEAR
Remember when Saddam was the new Hitler, and probably A Stalin and a few others. We had to attack him, contain him, take care of him, he was the most dangerous person in the world, he even had some thing we started to call WMDs. It was a scary time, we did not even begin to understand what in the heck was a WMD other than that is was dangerous, we were scared, we cowered, we went to war against Saddam to get rid of his WMDs. Never mind that the gas he used to suffocate and kill so many was provided to him by us, back in the day when he was our friend and fighting the ones we wanted him to get rid of.
The terrorists used planes to kill 3000 of our country men. They are also dangerous people, people who have murder on their minds, they want to kill Americans. What if they get a hold of nuke?
The leaders of forty nations met in Washington this week to make sure that the terrorists don't get a hold of a nuke, or may be highly enriched Uranium etc. To make a nuke so they can kill a whole lot of us. BUt what is the reality?
Unless you are a Robert Spencer, or a Rush Limbaugh listener, tell me something. Please, how easy is it to make a nuke? A functioning atom bomb? Last I checked the Libyan government had tried for thirty years, with all their oil money and state resources, they even had the cheat sheet from the illustrious A.Q. Khan of Pakistan. A.Q. Khan had apparently also given his recipe to the Iranians and North Koreans. Iran is still working on it.
They say that given the basic material, like highly enriched Uranium, the terrorists could put together a bomb in six month. Don't mind me if I sound suspicious. What do the terrorists know that many national governments do not? do they have better resources? intelligence? money? Technology? Or is it an attempt to make something out of nothing?
If it is so easy for the terrorists to get a bomb or to make one , should we not be worried about rogue governments getting bombs that are ready made , what about the drug lords who seem to have a lot more money, why not your local mafia, everyone could get in on the act.
Should we try to control the trade transport and possession of nuclear material, of course we should, but to tell the public that the nukes are coming? Why? Why? Don't you think people already have enough to worry about, and that we are giving the loony fringe some more to worry over? Is it O.k. for the government to scare people out of their wits?
IN fact, for years there have been rumors, (facts as stated by Robert Spencer and others) that the terrorists have 20 to fifty nuclear bombs already in place in this country, why would they even bother to get any new ones, they could already destroy the country, and what in the heck are they waiting for?
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
