The American “Style” of Approaching National Security Policy
American “style” of approaching national security policy is best described as being not overly intelligent, to say the least. We create problems only to think of how to deal with them later. The adoption of policy of “multiculturalism” has resulted in this country being flooded by potential agents of foreign influence, who act as members of “fifth column” against America’s interests, while possessing American citizenship.
However, instead of simply banning non-White immigration to America, which could have effectively solved the problem of domestic “ethnic” terrorism, our politicians come up with suggestions that FBI should be allowed to tab people’s phones, that secret services should be at liberty of keeping citizens jailed for as long as “necessary”, without even charging them with any particular crime, and that the application of tortures is absolutely appropriate, within a context of making suspected terrorists more talkative.
Despite the fact that it is clear that the reason why America was being attacked on 9/11 was not due to American women wearing short skirts (as George Bush wanted us to believe), but because of America’s unquestioned support of Israel, both Obama and McCain were never getting tired of praising Israel as America’s closest ally, without bothering to explain what how does such support benefit America.
It never even occurred to both Presidential candidates that travelling to Israel to bang their heads against the “wall of sorrow” and to pledge their allegiance to Israel, even before the actual elections had taken place, was something not entirely appropriate – after all, they were running for American and not for Israeli Presidency. This proves once again that America’s approach to the concept of national security can be described as anything but as such that it based on solid understanding of what this concept stands for in the first place.
