Clever Terrorism

I saw Rosie O’Donnell talk about this on the view, (I’m not a chick but I like her wackiness), anyways she mentioned that 40,000+ civilians had died from post 9/11 related issues; cancer and lung diseases were the main etiologies. The casualties from the direct hit by the planes were around the figure 2500 – 3000. Now more than 5 years later people are still dying and suffering from the consequences of the attack.

I don’t think that was intentional on the part of Ben Laden, He’s not that smart and I won’t give him much credit. But isn’t this a New Era of Terrorism, the kind that is indirect, unforeseen and unidentified. It all rang bells in my head when I was eating an apricot, it’s funny that I vividly recall that apricots did not taste like that 10 years ago, people were not so frequently sick around me and most people were not suffering from chronic/episodic headaches .

What if a secret organization (or a foe country) is secretly poisoning our soils, providing us or supervising the provision of carcinogenic chemicals and pesticides, Killing our marine life and coral populations, aidsing our youth with their promiscuous whores , the list goes on and on ..

Bottom line, I’m shocked of how weak, clueless, and unprepared we are; as a nation.

they do that and more

our food, water, air, and even clothes are polluted ... everything we use has unknown origin ...

even our minds are overwhelmed with polluted principals, and locked future

if one opened his eyes... they will be locked with fire and blood and death

we are doomed ... and i cant see any hope in a better tomorrow

To flee is to surrender - to give in. That's exactly what your enemy would want you to do.

Stay, get educated - and make sure that some less previliged people around you get educated as well. Only then will things change.

Unfortunately, our people got trapped between short-sighted greedy self-centered allies one one end, and a clever enemy on the other. They have both found a common interest - but for different reasons - they both want to keep our people blinded with ignorance.

Did I get too serious? Guess what.. It IS serious!
