Reader comment on item: On Closed Embassies, the Worldwide Travel Alert, and Wimpitude

Submitted by rodney allsworth (Australia), Aug 4, 2013 at 18:38

may I hazard a guess as to why the US wants to make an issue with this particular warning, OBAMA WANTS ALL AMERICA TO UNDERSTAND THAT THEY CAN NOT ALLOW THE MASSIVE SECURITY AND ELECTRONIC PROGRAMS TO BE STOPPED, EVEN STALLED, this is a classic example of a govt using some issue to re-enforce its authority to have the measures to do as they want, what I dont understand is how thw media -even yourself sir have not cottoned on to this factor,we all well understand that- A -GOOD DISASTER- IS THE BEST WAY OF INSTALLING PRACTICES THAT THE ELECTORS WOULD NEVER ALLOW IF IT WERE NOT THEIR NECKS AT RISK, freedom comes at a price, and to many people seem to believe that they can have freedom without a price, they seem to pretend that-govt is god-and that they can ask for whatever they want and govt -can- produce it, hmnn, none so blind as----.
