Why are we unable to just keep it this simple? Are Americans lives not worth anything? Homeland security is a serious, sometimes necessarily secret and when it comes to our national security why would we not accept our Homeland securities efforts to protect us.

Please have respect by keeping pointed politics out of any responses here in this thread.

People who have never traveled to other countries have no concept of the attitudes of people overseas, back when I flew into Iran (Shah's Regime) even though we were on a USAF airplane it was recommended we change out of our uniforms and into civilian clothes to draw less attention to our selves.

Not just people who havent been there, but people with certain...um, views on life, who tend to befriend people like themselves, dont really know many people who have any real knowledge of the topic at hand, other than what they are told by the media.

The simple approach with some good home spun common sense mixed with a healthy dose of reality can work miracles on one's worldly perspective.

Yes. His employer was concerned for his safety.
Who goes to Iraq to be safe?:confused:

Exception: Aside from Chicago natives, of course.

If you want to start injecting simplicity and common sense into the argument, well, good luck with that tactic.

You'll never get thru to them. Just remember George Bush's philosophy so nicely stated in his autobiography, Decision Points: they're never gonna like us anyway; but they will respect us. (Sadly, this philosophy was pushed aside by the next president.)

Pretty good argument there.

I did some looking at Wikipedia and figured the following:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Islamist_terrorist_attacks

Fatalities from Islamist attacks in non-Muslim majority countries:

1980-2016, 8352, average 226 per year
1980-2016 with the 9/11 attack removed, 5356, average 145 per year
2010-2016, 2849, 407 per year

As much as liberal elites (like the 9th Circuit judges) might like to pretend that it's not a problem, it clearly is and is clearly growing.

Didn't say they'd listen, just said that this marine used common sense and a reality check in his video. Whether or not some leftie listens to this is another matter. It's like this. You see something heading in someone's direction, something bad coming at his head and you yell "DUCK!" and he turns and questions you then gets hit hard and goes down. He got what he deserved because he didn't listen and wanted to question and argue with you. Too bad, reality bites.

It's worse than that, though, because it's not just that guy that risks getting hit.

We cannot afford to allow these criminals into our borders. Isis, World criminals.
