A War of choice versus war of necessity: Drug war deaths compared to terrorism war deaths
The latest or so we think: 53 die in attack on Mexican casino: At least 53 people were killed in a fiery attack at a casino in an upscale area of Monterrey, Mexico, government and emergency officials said.
Bomb kills 7 at U.N. building in Nigeria: At least seven people have been killed and many more injured in a bombing Friday at the U.N. building in the center of the Nigerian capital, Abuja, witnesses say. Recent attacks, including on the church and police station, may have been the work of a radical Muslim sect, Boko Haram aims to enforce a strict version of Sharia law in the nation.Africa's most populous nation is divided between a largely Christian south and a Muslim north. Islamist and anti Christian Religious terrorism, you bet!
Nigerian Islamist militants claim UN attack: Christian Science MonitorNigerian Islamist militants claim UN attack. Christian Science Monitor: Today's suicide attack on the United Nations headquarters in Nigeria marks the first time Boko Haram has struck a foreign target.
Researching the death totals in the war on terrorism is unbelievably convoluted and the totals elusive so here you can just take a look and I will explain at the bottom
Here too researching the death totals in the war on drugs is unbelievably convoluted and the totals elusive so here you can just take a look and I will again explain at the bottom
Any way you look at it the world realizes the war on drugs is lost and the war on drugs has been a war of choice. The world says drug war lost end it so the US increases drug war spending. Duh!
In closing on this subject I want to say something different for me. When I think of the war on drugs I think illegal drugs but at the link above I learned something I never gave a thought and that is that over 50,000 Americans are killed a year from prescription drugs. That is a growing problem and where we should be concentrating our efforts.
If you have been following me you know that this so called war on terror in my mind was long instigated by the west and is just beginning. I am sick of hearing how we are killing Al Qaeda and Taliban leaders and weakening the so called war on terror. First this is not a war on terror and we are winning nothing it is just beginning.
Like it or not this is a war against the majority of Islam. It is a Religious war and that is only part of it around the world! I am sick of hearing world leaders come out after an attack on our interests saying they strongly condemn the actions of the so called terrorists! So what! That is absolutely worthless!
From the beginning the so called terrorists said they wanted us off their lands which will never happen so what does Bush do he attacks them and rubs salt in the wound. We have our work cut out for us and will have to fight and it will be much longer than anyone can imagine. I said years ago that as we know Religious wars are the longest and the dirtiest and this will be the worst and at a point in time when our Planet is at a point in its life cycle where it may not survive and be life sustaining as we need it to survive as we know it!
Anyway you look at it this so called terrorism fiasco is just beginning and will be fought for many generations. I am of the frame of mind that these people will only get better and more desperate over time. They are learning from us every day and we better start learning from them. Do not trust in your leaders keep an eye peeled!
It is time for our so called leaders to at least make believe they can think and act like they are better than the terrorists. Condoning their action is old and sickening to listen to over and over. Let us get with it! deserved or not is not the issue. The war on terrorism is will not go away and will have to be fought to win regardless of how long, period. The war on terrorism is a war of necessity.
