what else is new?

Reader comment on item: The Voice of America, Silenced on Radical Islam

Submitted by Rafi Sela (Israel), Apr 12, 2009 at 00:23

The USA will never learn!!!
It is NOT the political correctness that is important but the understanding that there is another world and another culture out there.
Public opinion will NOT stop terrorists from attacking.
you can change wording and definitions but the explosives, WMD and Bio Chem threats will NOT go away.

The problem lies in the system. Politicians see their goal as getting re-elected or re-nominated and NOT solving any problems. The worst that can happen if people die as a result of terror is - they will lose their job. So if one does not view the threat as real he or she can continue the game forever, or until it really happens.

Until DHS and other government agencies adopt the idea that threat is real and has to be dealt with today rather than tomorrow this is going nowhere.
