HERE’S WHAT I THINK

Now the Canadian government tells us that ISIS attacked Canadian soldiers two more times, and the Canadian soldiers defended themselves.  The Toronto Star quotes Captain Paul Forget as saying, “In both cases, Canadian special operations forces, again acting in self-defense, effectively returned fire neutralizing the threat.”

“Neutralizing the threat”?  Expressions like this keep us from thinking that soldiers killed human beings (just like us).  They are not human beings, they are “the threat.”  They were not murdered, they were only “neutralized.”

Here’s what I think:  I think that the Canadian government intended to send Canadian soldiers to Iraq for a combat mission, but knew that Canadians would not accept that.  So the government sent some soldiers to “advise” and supposedly not be on the front lines engaging in combat.  Then the government, along with the media, exploited every terrorist attack around the world to drum up more fear.

I think the government secretly wants more terrorist attacks, in Canada, so they will have the fearful support of the Canadian sheeple.  With more terrorist attacks, the government can send more troops to Iraq saying that the mission has changed to one of combat.  After all, they have to stop ISIS from taking over the Universe.

Recently, U.S. federal investigators arrested several Russian spies in New York.  When communism was The Boogeyman, this story would have received the same media attention that terrorism receives now.

Governments love The Boogeyman.  He keeps the sheeple fearful.  With fearful sheeple, governments can get away with violations of civil liberties.  With fearful sheeple, governments can get away with murder.

Who will the next Boogeyman be after the Muslims?    Buddhists?    Klingons?    People who think?
