MUST SEE!: Michael Scheuer Lecture – “America’s Global War on Terror”

synopsis from google video:

As a guest speaker for the 24th Annual Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz Memorial Lectureship in National Security Affairs, Mr. Michael Scheuer spoke on Thursday, March 13th 2008. Despite the absence of a terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11, the threat al Qaeda poses to the American homeland is real and significant, according to former Central Intelligence Agency Senior Counter-terrorist Analyst Michael Scheuer, the “anonymous” author of the acclaimed bestseller, Imperial Hubris: Why the West Is Losing the War on Terror. In fact, U.S. policies and actions have helped Osama bin Laden win greater sympathy from within the broader Muslim community, putting all Americans at greater peril, argues Scheuer, whose CIA work focused exclusively on terrorism, militant Islam, Afghanistan, and Pakistan until he resigned last fall to speak out publicly on the failures of U.S. foreign policy. What is the U.S. government doing wrong in its fight against terrorism? What policies should it pursue? And how should the intelligence community be reformed? CIA insider Michael Scheuer shares his informed and unique insights on these pressing issues.

    DON’T BECOME THAT WHICH THE PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM

    By scorpi2000 – Mar 7th, 2008 at 11:29 pm EST

    The manipulation of the facts or the intentional distortion of someones words has traditionaly been used by certain groups to discredit, discriminate, and demonize people, groups and even countries to gather support of the masses to follow the ideas or plans that the honest facts dont support. This is how slavery was justified for many years, and the salem witch trails. This is also how the sale of ciggarets was able to continue, even after it was well known the distruction they caused.

    And this is how George Bush gathered the support of the American people to support his vision of invading Iraq.

    Senator Clinton is using some of the same twisting and maniplulation of the facts that lead this country into an unjust war and created disrespect for the United States around the world. They used these tacticts to try to discredit your wife, twisting her words to make it seem that shes anti American. Also, as the news stations spread these distortions, they become accomplists in the misleading of a great country.

    The media likes the mud slinging and negative back and forth , actualy instagating the fight to keep it going like children on the play ground at school excited to see a fight, taunting the ones involved. hey man you gonna let him talk about you like that and get away with it. You must be scarred. Your a punk. dont let him say that about your mama, kick his but .

    If any parent saw their children acting this way, they would break up the fight and tell these children about their bad behavior. Wouldnt they say grow up, what youre doing is a sign of imaturity. Would they say your just as wrong for instagating the fight. there’s a better way of settling your differences.

    Is this a sreet brawl, gang fight, or a debate between two inteligent adults, mature enough to lead our country.

    We dont need any more of this type of politics in the White House its already done enough damage.

    EXPOSE THEM AND THIER TACTICTS INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING THEM DOWN THAT SLIPPERY SLOPE.

    Be like the Parent who is pointing out how childish and imature this behavior is.

    REMIND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HOW BUSH MISLED THEM WITH THE SAME TACTICS.

    I BELIEVE USING THIS APROACH CAN HELP TO DEFUSE SOME OF THIS AS YOU CONTINUE ON YOUR JOURNEY

    THANKS

    Thank you for exsposing me to Michael Scheuer lecture.
    That which I have writen only coincides because of the same unbiased truthful logic that we both applied to come to these conclusions.

    I sit here astonished that two minds with nothing in common but pure truth logic and reasoning can come to some of the same conclusions.

    Thanks again

    FAIR COMPITITION LEADS TO A BETTER SOCIETY

    By scorpi2000 – Mar 9th, 2008 at 3:49 am EDT

    The only reason that race is an issue in any society, is because one group or another feel they have the right to gain power or stay in power by any means. Stopping or preventing any fair competition is ok because, “our existance is more important than yours”. Achieving this goal by hook or by crook doesnt matter to some .

    This way of thinking can only manifest when one race or culture feels that thier individual existance, beliefs and wants are more important or relevant than the lives of others that also live on the planet. The exceptance of this logic leads to one believing they have the right to take over or exploit another mans property or land, and punish, or demonize anyone who resists or fights back.

    When this aproach to survival ,is embraced, and put into action, the individual, the race,the culture, the society, the country, or the nation using it, has actually jeapordized its own future existance, peace and survival. When this aproach to life is used against another human being you have now forced him to either, adopt the same concept to protect himself, ATTACK, flee, be detroyed or dehumanized.

    Any and all wars are a product of this phenomina.

    As history has always repeated itself in previous societies, after building and maintaining a great society based on these concepts, they all fail because of the same concept that created them.
    Colapsing from within , its own people using the concept on themselves, or because the other countries, in fear of you doing the same to them, rush to become powerful enough to protect themselves, or try to do you, before you do them.

    It will only end when we as human beings stop using this concept

    to, gain power, maintain power, gather resources or secure survival.

    We should immidiatly start using our power and knowledge today to first protect ourselves from that which has already been set in motion long time ago. Build and maintain a strong military for defence purposes only.At the same time, create a self sufficient, self sustaining society in America containing a balance of all races and cultures around the world.

    We must teach all children the reasons, rules and laws of existing in a peacful inclusive society.

    The other way it can end is if the concept of (win any way you can) evolves to a point where the use of this way of life spreads around the country, spreads around the world, and manifests into a massive war that destroys most, leaving only the meak to inherit the earth.
    SOUNDS FAMILIAR DOESNT IT.

    THANKS
    SCORPI2000
