What’s it worth?
Are you sure you still support the war in Afghanistan? How much should we spend to protect ourselves from the perceived threat of terrorism? Nobel Peace Prize winning song and dance man, Barack Obama, recently committed to having troops there until 2025. Is it worth it?
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Ronald Reagan recently wrote a great paper called “The Case of The Missing Terrorists” detailing a profound question: if we are under such a threat, and the TSA has proven to be riddled with security breaches, where are the terrorists?
My opinion, well supported by many facts, is that the terrorist threat is incredibly over-hyped and used as an amazingly effective, cruel and dishonest marketing tool to get the American people to pay for massive spending programs and support our war-hungry government.
