This concept that that man is trying to allow to perpetuate is a unified hatred of both the current administration and the efforts to preempt
terrorist activity. What they don't seem to comprehend is the possible ramifications for their activity, in opposing the main forms of stopping
terrorists either prior to planning, or during the planning of a potential threat to the United States.
It's not at all about terrorists, the War in Iraq/Afghanistan or genuine displeasure at the strategy of preemption. It's about a dislike of the
President and his political party.
What we need to come to terms with is the very real threat of a nuclear weapon falling into the hands of those who would do us harm.
Thus, it is quite clear to an individual such as myself, that the ideaology of the means to achieve an action is justified by the results of the
action, or the consequences avoided were the action in absense.
In short, the ends justify the means.
The ends-Avoiding the detonation of a nuclear weapon/biological weapon/etc in a likely population center (DC, New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas, LA,
etc.) is more than enough to justify the means, tapping phones, tracking sales records, or otherwise).
What individuals who are against these preventative measures don't seem to comprehend is what the repercussions on the US of a massive loss of life
in a US population center.
Wars empirically retaliate, US citizens will have an outcry for retaliation to whomever they imagined committed the atrocity. Following an immediate
withdrawal of the US from the Iraq/Afghanistan, most of the Middle East will be turned to glass. China will likely declare war, the US economy will
become unstable, widescale panic will surely follow within America, including a massive slaughter of the Arab population across the US. China or
Russia or both will seize the opportunity to attack, and the United States could be reduced to anarachy in a matter of weeks.
All because the naive and hate-filled populace is against the administration, just because.
Let them check my history, if it means stopping a major atrocity from transpiring, I am all for it.
