in response to reader comment: No Enemy, No War

Submitted by Robert (United States), May 14, 2013 at 22:52

You don't get it.The Government needs a phantom enemy,its not about winning wars,its about always having an enemy.Without an enemy Big Government and the military complex would cease to exist.

9/11 was the best thing that ever happened for big Government, Homeland Security who has the authority to spy on its own citizens,wire tapping,and something so vague as being labled a terrorist equals indefinite detention without due processthey keep getting bigger with each terror attack and the rights of the people are less and less.
