Is the “War on Terrorism” Making Us Safer?

Why were we attacked on 9/11/2001?

“They attack us because we’ve been over there. We’ve been bombing Iraq for 10 years. We’ve been in the Middle East. I think Reagan was right. We don’t understand the irrationality of Middle Eastern politics, so, right now we’re building an embassy in Iraq that’s bigger than the Vatican. We’re building 14 permanent bases. What would we say here if China was doing this in our country or in the Gulf of Mexico? We would be objecting. We need to look at what we do, from the perspective, of what would happen if somebody did it to us.”

– Ron Paul in the South Carolina debate on May 15th, 2007

Think about that. Today I read an article on

“…the collateral damage from U.S. operations in [Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan] has enraged Muslims around the world, creating an opportunity for jihadists to use the Internet to inspire angry Muslims in the West to action.”

Ron Paul was right.

So are we safer as a result of our renewed militarism in the past decade?

The war on terrorism is an undeclared war.

Article I, Section 8 of the United States Constitution states that only Congress has the power “To declare war…”

We’d be in a lot better shape today, if only we followed the Constitution.

    on the other hand, you think about the unlimited American support to Israel. And think about the autority & effect of Jews in the USA. actually they are leading the united states to unknown dark tunal, because this is their believing to be the superior over & above the whole world.
