Rather Fight ‘Em Over There Than Over Here

Out of all the excuses used to continue these hopeless wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now Syria, to me, none is more ridiculous than the one above. America was shockingly unprepared for the terrorist atrocity committed on September 11, 2001.  Today, after 14-years of wars, over 6000 US troops dead, and TRILLIONS of borrowed dollars spent, our country is not much more secure.

If your family and home were attacked by raging maniacs who lived in a lousy neighborhood in a distant town, which would be better to do?  Fortify and guard your house, educate your family to defend itself, and continually stand watch – or – race to the faraway town and try to chase down and kill the bastards – despite the fact they keep changing neighborhoods and even towns?

There is so much more we could do to make America safer!  Implement stronger transportation security strategies,  treat TSA agents as highly-trained professionals, fortify our water, food, and power networks, increase internal antiterrorist intelligence, educate Americans to be constantly vigilant – the list goes on and on. But we don’t because we spend virtually all of our defense money chasing maniacs through distant towns.

As tough as it is for flag-waving, hard-liners to admit our Mideast policy has been a total fucking failure for 14-years, they must realize the only sane way out is ‘let Muslims kill Muslims’ – as America concentrates on its own security.

(And every day we bomb those countries, we CREATE more terrorists than we kill.)
