Today, on the radio as they discussed the bridge collapse in Minnesota, the hosts described how the major (corporate) news outlets had to go to the Department of Homeland Security to see if this was an act of terrorism. This, of course, caused me to start thinking, what did they mean? Wouldn't the local law enforcement on scene be a better source than a government bureaucrat thousands of miles away?
Everday we arewarned of impending doom from a department that wants to intrude even more on our privacy. This isn't the first time we've been warned of imminent terror attacks, it seems almost evry summer a warning is issued, which comes to pass with no attacks, but people forget because they're too distracted gearing up for the next season of American Idol. Is the reason the media needs official confirmation because they know that in order for the official terrorist attack to occur, it has to be allowed (or be another government black op) like 9/11.
Make no mistake, the next attack won't benefit terrorists, but will benefit the corpocracy, defense contractors, neocons, and Israel-firsters like John Hagee. The people of the Middle East, if they wish to attack the US, need only to wander into Iraq (like most of the anti-Americans over there are doing anyway) to strike at us.
