does it occur to anyone that the biggest threat to the US is a divided nation with paranoid people wanting to engage in a civil war. other nations know they cannot defeat us in an all-out military war, but if they can provoke our own citizens into fighting each other, they can simply set back and watch the country implode...and for them?...mission accomplished without firing a shot.
