I suppose ISIS could attack us here successfully, but only if Obama re-appoints Condoleezza Ricepuffs to run national security, which isn´t likely.
This "ISIS gonna git us" routine is a scam 2 promote a racket. "War" wrote Major-General Smedley Butler, twice a Medal of honor recipient, "is a racket."
Got that, kids? It´s authoritative, final, & comprehensive, from one who knew whereof he spake. Plus, it´s really, really, simple: whenever you turn on your cable news for a little decapitation porn, or open your "liberal" New York Times where some dweebish "unnamed government official" flaps his gums like a drunken baboon as he recounts the latest atrocities & wets himself thinking about roving bands of IS youths with knives & box cutters loose in a DC shopping mall, you're sucking the poison right out of the garden hose.
When you hear or read this kind of swill, if you buy it, you have been, in the immortal words of Malcolm X, "Had! You've Been Took! Hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led Astray! Run Amok! This Is What They Do!"
"What they do" is send people &/or killing machines somehere and start shooting at people & blowing stuff up. It did not escape the keen gaze of General Smedley Butler that in addition to a lot of young guys dying horrible violent deaths, a handful of older men, far removed from the hostilities, were making enormous piles of cash. It´s just as true today as it was when he published "War is a Racket" (1930).
Let´s not buy another overseas war. People don´t want it. It´s immoral, and insane to perpetually be doing people this way, just so a few fatass graying businessmen can sit around listening to each other's sour belches and musical farts. This is NOT hyperbole. This is "what they do" & why they do it, & as always (almost), you know the war is a fkng dirty lie.
