"While ISIS is, in fact, trying to build an Islamic State and is working to capture and govern territory, its ultimate vision is an apocalyptic one. A strategy that looks self-destructive is, in fact, destructive, but perhaps less baffling than it seems as first glance. As many scholars have noted, ISIS's long-range vision is of an end-of-days battle with the West -- what it calls "Rome." It is the ultimate suicide mission, one that sees the entire world involved in a grand final conflagration."
The airlines needed it it, so customers would have their illusion of safety.
Without it, all the legacies would have gone bankrupt after 9/11.
I flew the week after 9/11 and there were NG people with slung M-16's
every which way. Even empty rifles made people FEEL safer.
Replacing the hired help with different ones doing the same
pointless jobs, would achieve the same end result. And you're not going
to go back to the "good old days" the airlines wouldn't allow it.
It's an impossible task. Here's one X-ray image after another
floating rapidly past. Don't dare stop too many people over nothing and
bung up the lines all day, the airport authority/airlines will get pissed.
Try not to get bored and miss something.... ZZzzzzz
How's that vote for Obama (twice) working out for you?
Dunno about HydroCarbon, but good here. Plenty of entertainment watching GOP, especially the
Karl Rove meltdown when he couldn't believe Romney lost. The GOP has done a great imitation of
Harold Camping too, a man I adore. WORLD IS ENDING TOMORROW, wait postponed, yep it's
going to end next week for sure.
It's a good thing the gun nuts don't believe in scoring political points in the immediate aftermath of a ghastly tragedy.
Whoah there. The important thing is we should not act RASHLY in the wake of
an unfortunate incident. Spin the wheel, as long as it either comes up mental health
or terrorism, we're good. Anything else, spin again.
