“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

US runs scared, and with good reason

The US, Canada, and some other western-European nations closed embassies in dozens of middle-east countries on Sunday on the news of "credible and specific threats" from Al-Qaeda. The US embassies are expected to remain closed for about a week.

First, why do we even have embassies in half these countries, if other than to provide prestigious jobs for President's campaign bundlers? And second, what's to stop Al-Qaeda from just postponing whatever attack they're planning until we come back?

We need to be a far less presence in that part of the world. They hate us and we don't understand them. All we're going to do is get US civilians slaughtered.
