sheessh. okay... im totally playing devils advocate with this one... trying to push your buttons, make you guys THINK
read objectively, please....
If we do what you are suggesting,...
i was not making a suggestion!! i made that clear!! i will, however, make my suggestion at the end of this post.....
Your hare-brained plan would not save any lives, just as the internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII saved no lives.
wheres your proof that it didnt save any lives? it didnt cost any!
It would, however, end America's role as the world's MORAL superpower. You would undoubtedly forever destroy the very democratic notions this country is based on
Now wait a second. You have no proof whatsoever for that statement. Truth is, going into WWII the USA's military was ranked at 19th in the world!! Blacks and whites used different drinking fountains, etc... during WWII like i mentioned, they used camps, since then we are now the #1 military super-power, and a racial melting pot of the world..... the two have no correlation, im just stating those facts to dismiss your bogus prophecy
Some people dont seem to understand, these guys that did this to us last tuesday were everyday-american citizens. They had wives, and children who went to public schools and neighbors who said "they were such nice people!" Im sorry, but no ordinary person can differentiate between a skilled terrorist and an honest american citizen. That bothers me. When we go bomb their homeland, they are gonna kill more people from right here in america. Sealing our borders wont help, they're already here, they have the money, the training, and whats worse, is the hatred that will drive them to further terrorism against the US.
This is a war like no other we have ever experienced. We are not fighting against a state or country. We are fighting groups of individuals who hide in the shadows, they have no morals. The only way to eliminate this enemy, is dig them out of their shadows.
Thier biggest advantage is that we go by the rules, and morals, and they dont have to.
what everyone is waiting for:
There is a HUGE difference between discrimination and "racial profiling". I honestly think that concentration camps during WWII was useless. We were fighting japaneese military in JAPAN... the difference here is that we are fighting a war against someone who has large powerful hidden factions right here in America.
I believe that it is in our best interests to investigate all citizens who have any ties whatsoever in any fashion to the middle east. All immigrants legal or illegal. because this is a monumental task, it is only logical to start with Arabic and muslim people. Im sorry if you think thats racist, if you have half a brain you'll realize its not. Most arab-americans wont even notice a difference, if they have lived in america thier entire life, they wont even recieve a phone call.
Folks, you gotta understand, the only way for them to fight us in a war, is NOT attack our military, but to attack our innocent civilians from within. Their strategy is to blend in, to appear like a normal citizen. Armed with this information, how would you neutralize this threat??
