Our government has apparently finally determined that bombing other counties can indeed lead to blowback here. So, of course, they keep bombing. Why it’s almost like they want attacks at home. Such attacks would of course give them a fine excuse to stifle more freedoms, ratchet up surveillance, and howl about threats to the country.
Me, I think politicians and the national security apparatus are our biggest threats to security and freedom. Our peril is internal, an out of control government that no longer much cares what the people think or want, and which must always have war.
