America's war on terror is driven by an irrational fear of terrorism, according to one homeland security expert who believes that the money spent and the security steps taken after 9/11 do not match the reality posed by the threat. Other experts, however, insist that the terror threat is real and credible.

Dr. John Mueller, professor of political science at Ohio State University, wrote in the current issue of The American Interest -- a center-left foreign policy magazine -- that when it comes to finding al-Qaeda-linked terror cells within the United States, "investigators haven't found much of anything because there isn't much of anything to find."

Domestic security agencies such as the FBI "have dutifully and laboriously assembled masses of intelligence data and have pursued an endless array of leads," Mueller said. "Almost all of this activity has led nowhere, but it will continue because, of course, no one wants to be the one whose neglect somehow led to 'another 9/11.'"

In an interview with Cybercast News Service , Mueller admitted that "there are bad guys out there, and they can sometimes do bad things, but to consider them to be an existential threat is really a massive extrapolation from [the] single tragedy" of 9/11.

Mueller said it would be "so easy" for al Qaeda to do a "small-scale attack" in the United States -- blowing up a fast-food restaurant, for example.

"It seems likely that...they just don't intend to do it, and it may be that they're perfectly happy to keep watching as the United States overreacts and gets itself deeper into the ditch," Mueller said.

Soldiers who need special waivers to get into the Army because of bad behavior go AWOL more often and face more courts-martial. But they also get promoted faster and re-enlist at a higher rate, according to an internal military study obtained by The Associated Press.

The Army study late last year concluded that taking a chance on a well-screened applicant with a criminal, bad driving or drug record usually pays off. And both the Army and the Marines have been bringing in more recruits with blemished records. Still, senior leaders have called for additional studies, to help determine the impact of the waivers on the Army.

"We believe that so far the return outweighs the risk," said Army Col. Kent M. Miller, who headed the team that conducted the study.


“I wanna kill people,” said a new recruit. “I want to see them suffer, writhing in pain and agony. And I like waterboarding. I tried it out on my cat. It’s cool.”

“Right this way, Colonel,” said the recruiting SGT. Skin M. Alive.

Go all the way for the TSA...

"In some cases, planes have departed without any coverage because the airline employees were adamant they would not fly," said the air marshal"

Such silliness...

Kudos to Stockholm for recognizing the importance of this.  It's time to put down (in the veterinary sense) the notion that nukes are somehow stabilizing and ensure that large-scale wars are unthinkable.

Laser weapons are being developed, and soon the weapons will be like the weapons on Star Trek and Star Wars.

Some people are against making our schools safe by adding armed campus police and cameras and fencing and metal detectors, but instead they want to take guns away from all Americans. Let Americans keep our guns, and make the schools safe by improving security at the schools. Having more undercover school police at high schools and universities, pretending to be students, would also be wise. 

Now is not a time to be cheap when it comes to security at our schools.

Salute,

Marco Rubio worries that China is getting our newest and best technology, but it goes way deeper than that.

The technology which Americans really care about is the technology for computers, cell phones, televisions, stereos, and automobiles, all of which are imported now. And technology like high speed trains would be great, but our politicians are all being lobbied by the automobile industry to keep people from getting great public transportation such as high speed trains. We must stop the corruption, and we must manufacture our stuff here in the USA again, we need to make our own computers, cell phones, televisions, stereos, and automobiles, and we need to build our own high speed trains, etc.

We also need to bring the entertainment industry back to Hollywood.

There are many thing which we need to do in order to improve our economy and improve our security.

Our only leads right now in the world are in our defense industry, and our space industry, and our ability to build satellites, but those are about the only areas where we are world leaders.

Our greatness came from having a constant supply of new immigrants, with new ideas, wanting to work for the American Dream, but that is drying up, and Trump wants to build walls, and we can no longer create jobs for the new immigrants, we can no longer tap into that source of opportunity. We are at a point now where we are a dying country, instead of a growing country. We can no longer employ new immigrants, and Trump wants to build a wall, and all of our goods are being manufactured by communist slave labor in China, and we cannot build high speed trains because our government is in bed with the automobile industry and with the oil industry. 

As we create the jobs of the future, in green energy, etc, we need to create those jobs here in the USA. Former coal workers can manufacture solar panels, and Van Nuys can manufacture electric cars, and we can build our high speed trains here, etc. As we move ahead into the future, we need to create new jobs here in the USA, and we need to employ American workers.

California grows food, and makes wine, and those industries create jobs for the immigrants, and that is why California will never support a wall, the Mexicans work in our fields, and without the Mexicans we will lose our edge. Of note too, is that Mexico is California's number one trade partner.

Rubio is right, our technology is important for our security, but it goes way beyond that. Right now America is like an old man who just wants to retire and die, instead of being like a young man with dreams who wants to do great things. We need to dream again, and we need to do great things. And we need to create new jobs for the immigrants again, we need to bring back the American Dream, and the California Dream, and we do not need any walls, we are a free Christian nation with good Christian neighbors and we do not need any walls. 

And we must support a labor movement in China the same way that we supported Lech Walesa and Solidarity in Poland, we must support freedom, good human rights, democracy, and fair pay and good treatment for workers, etc, and we must support clean energy globally and a clean environment, etc.

Salute,

Tony V.

In Los Angeles we need to create jobs for fifty eight thousand homeless people, and they need to be able to earn enough money from their hard work to be able to pay for food, and for shelter, and for other expenses. We need to have a growing economy again in regard to employing people here in the USA, instead of a shrinking economy. And when we are growing then our immigrants are a blessing and not a curse.

And in Orange County, California, we have over one hundred and sixty thousand jobs which are created by Tourism. As we build our high speed trains we will get more tourism for our state, and plus our trains will be good for our environment.

We can create more jobs in California by building on our strengths. We are standing on the shoulders of our forefathers who have been working for hundreds of years to pass California, and the USA, down to us, and we need to build upon what they built to pass down a great future for future generations.

The USA is for everyone, and no one can build walls around the USA. And when the USA works right, then there can be plenty of jobs for everyone.

Salute,

Tony V
