World @ Risk

Great Satan's Commission on the Prevention of WMD and T ism just unleased their report and it is pretty scary.

"Our research encompassed travel from the Sandia National Laboratory in New Mexico to London to Vienna. We traveled to Moscow to assess U.S. nuclear cooperation initiatives with Russia.
We were en route to Pakistan, a country of particular interest to this
Commission and to the United States, only to hear that the bombing of the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad had occurred. We had been hours from staying in that very hotel."

Aside from nearly getting vaporized in the horrible Marriott attack, the commission points out several 'nonstate actors' who seem to live for the chance to actually carry out murderous mayhem like Ba'Athist Iraq's failed attempt in Manchester with WMD quality ricin.

Uncool cats like "... al Qaeda in Iraq, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, and the Algerian al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, formerly the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC)."

Semi and full blown states like NoKo and Iran get a serious going over too:

Great Satan should

"... stop these programs through direct diplomatic engagement
with the Iranian and North Korean governments, it must do so from a position of strength, emphasizing both the benefits to them of abandoning their nuclear weapons programs and the enormous costs of failing to do so.

Such engagement must be backed by the credible threat of direct
action in the event that diplomacy fails."

And the scary part? An uncool psychic prediction:

"The Commission believes that unless the world community acts
decisively and with great urgency, it is more likely than not that a weapon of mass destruction will be used in a terrorist attack somewhere in the world by the end of 2013"

The world will not act to stop the terrorists. To do so is not in the interest of Russia or China, for they are hoping the world's economy will collapse. And an attack on that scale will do just that.

Wait a minute ...

W the Great assured us trashing helpless li'l Iraq would make us safe. All this talk about how terrorists want to kill us almost makes me wonder if Muslims don't like being bombed in the name of democracy and -- I know it sounds crazy -- they may be angered by our actions, despite our noble intentions.

Is it possible?

The only bold things one will see from the upcoming administration will be bold moves of appeasement overseas, and bold curtailments of the Bill of Rights at home, so we can be more like candy-ass, socialist Europa.

Skunkfeathers - Your saying Obama will curtail personal rights at home?? I can't see it. More than likely we'll have collective security interests pushed aside in some ways to protect indivduals. At least that is the way the Obama administration may see it. Of course that may only help our enemies but I see a tighter protection of individual rights over a tighter collective security of our society. Hopefully I'm wrong in that a willingness to "do what you have to do" mentality will prevail with President Obama in high risk situations. We shall see.

why do you use the word "retards" in your enemies list? Just doesn't seem right to me that you pick on a group of people just doing the best they can. It's not about free speech, it's about having a little decency. Not caring about how people with special needs feel, yes they actually have feelings, makes you as tone deaf as W. Sorry, that must hurt.

hmshore, Definitions and words evolve. Like 'special needs' for example. 'Retards' on Enemies list is apropo - slow or limited intellectual, emotional development or academic progress is the very def for those cats.
