To the Editor: Worse attacks than Boston are coming. The national media will not speak ill of Islam. Violence around the world tells a different story; there were 15 attacks, 58 killed, 535 wounded on April 14, 2013, alone.
The West is trying to hold leadership in the world, increasing population via immigration. This is still not enough to offset a Russian and Chinese and few other nation alliance. Our leaders are bent on Islam to ally with us. We could use our own oil, but we still buy from the Mideast. It’s a stupid, defensive, myopic maneuver.
Recently quoted P.A. & Fatah official, “If we had a nuke, we’d have used it this morning.”
The Benghazi incident may have been a consequence of trying not to anger Islamic countries.
An alternative to blundering around the globe could be a project, light speed travel. Goal: send an object to Mars in about 10 minutes. This entails the bureaucrats to find faith in us.
Spin the technology off, green the earth, cleaner atmosphere, rob energy states of income, retrofit combustion engines with this technology, create a worldwide business, make money from other countries. This is proactive, not violent.
Leadership based on enlightenment trumps drones & force. Taking some Islamic leaders on a space light might be interesting, conventional directions won’t work in space, and how will they face Mecca to pray a light week out from earth? We could all benefit from a view of stars in all directions, realizing that the next chance of life is over four light years distant, making life quite rare and precious.
