To play devil's advocate though, it would help ease the paranoid minds of politicians and security 'gurus' in DHS if the enemy we've been fighting for
over 10 years didn't occasionally use children as two legged bombs with intelligent guidance systems.
I MIGHT be inclined to believe that if it weren't for one tiny flaw in your statement:
Yes, islamic fundamentalists have used children in this fashion...you call them the "enemy" and for the sake of somantics, I'll concede the point.
Here's the problem...
TSA isn't searching most islamics. In fact their internal documents indicate they are going out of their way NOT to search them.
They ARE searching for what the DHS calls "white al-quaida"...the list is incredibly long and just as ridiculous.
They do this to christians and hebrews and everyone who's NOT an islamic jihadist.
People who do NOT have a history of strapping bombs to their children.
They target 80 year old ladies with extensive surgeries.
They target attractive women with disproportionate bustlines.
They target infants.
They target terminally ill people.
Most of them are white.
All of them as far from "islamic suicide bombers" as humanly possible.
People who oppose gun control.
People who believe in the gold standard.
People who think the government is a sham.
The list goes on and on and on and NONE of these targeted groups have a history of suicide bombing anything.
When was the last time you read in the news that a white family strapped 5 pounds of C-4 to their child and wheeled him onto a plane or stuck a few
sticks of TNT under grandma's wheelchair?
Correct me if I am wrong but I haven't heard of a single example of this yet.
You say they have been facing this "enemy" for ten years now. Are you inferring they have been fighting the American public for the last decade?
This is the part I just refuse to swallow.
It's prisoner acclimation training...plain and simple.
Ask ANY death camp survivor and THEY will tell you the same thing.
This isn't about making the planes safer...it's about terrifying, dehumanizing and dominating the citizenry.
THAT is something I just can't accept.
