I was reading yahoo news again and came across another story that I felt needed to be talked about a bit:
It mentions how these guys were all set to blow up a Jewish synagogue and community center, and use missiles to blow up American military planes.
It talks of using an undercover person working with the FBI and how it was a year long thing before they were arrested.
What gets me is how the violence was encouraged by this undercover person. Why did this same person not encourage them to turn that hatred into something really useful like taking political action instead? We will now never know the outcome of that possibility.
I half suspect that to continue getting "war money" out of Americans they need to continually show the threat is real and keep Americans scared for their own safety.
We can not let ourselves become a nation that sees other cultures as the enemy and instead help lead the peoples to a non-violent solution. We claim to be the leader of the free world, now we must ask ourselves will we lead them to violence or to non-violence?
Choose your path wisely!
