As touched on by my partner, SkepticOverlord, I can't help but cringe at the irony of political bating and fanaticism on a conspiracy theory
Oh, and why do I wave my hand so easily at this particular subject (and yes, I agree with you both...Springer and O.P.: THANK YOU for moving this
here's the deal. I joined the military just out of high school and did so for the college money/usual reasons a long time ago. Just a month into
the deal, I was recruited, along with four others, into the intelligence field. At the age of 19, I and my cohorts did extensive background checks
and received Top Secret clearances.
I then proceded to do a number of smaller to more significant tasks in the intel realm for the next ten years. I submitted to two Counter
Intelligence Polygraphs during this time.
Then I went out into "the world" and continued to work with things involving clearances...submitting to background checks, medical records
screenings, physicals, etc. and so on. To many of you, the invasion of personal freedom and privacy would be a thing that you would not understand
nor tolerate. I did so and do so willingly, because I live here and decided to spend most of my life in service to my country. So I guess that makes
me somewhat patriotic. To many of you, that makes me a "neo-con", or the enemy. (this is directed at our U.S. members here)
So, that being said, that might explain why I could become very irate and upset when the obvious Left in the room decide to sling out their sentiments
thinly disguised as conspiracy. It would further explain why I would and will continue to demand that we focus on the real enemy at hand right now,
and that is the terrorists who have repeatedly attacked anyone who does not agree with their religion. It's that simple. 9/11 isn't some
conspiracy, it's a wake up call to welcome us into a club that many other countries have been a member of for a long, long while. To think that a
U.S. administration had anything to do with WTC or any such foolishness is an outright insult to those who died in those attacks.
It is these particular children of pure speculation that divide this nation during a time when we should be utterly focused on destroying the enemy of
the entire civilized world.
But nothing I can say or do will convince many in this forum to see this. For many, they wish to make our attack on terrorists and terrorism into
another Vietnam. The children of hippies merely repeating what they hear their parents saying...their parents enjoying the benefits of capitalism
while speaking of the benefits of socialism and even communism.
Thus endeth my rant. Hopefully, this is a small insight into the mind of a right-wing nutjob, and what makes us so utterly angry at lemmings who will
fall for any Michael Moore-ish scam and scandal that comes along.
