I'm more frightened of Republicans than terrorists or even the random nutjob.

See, Republicans have the power to destroy us all, and want to use that power to destroy us all if we don't bow to their whims. Terrorists and random nutjobs? They only pop up occasionally, and their bodycount is generally much lower.

jenny next: SkinnyHead: There's nothing controversial about warning people against complacency when it comes to terrorism.   Unless you happen to be a big fan of complacency.

Complacency, at times, can be a good thing.  Complacency is better than lashing out at random people who had nothing to do with the unjust act just to do something about it.

/I'm not criticizing any specific policy.  I'm just saying that, unless there's a time constraint that doesn't allow for it, it's better to get all your information before acting.


The better thing would be to correctly define "complacency." The real definition should look something like this:

COMPLACENCY:
Uh, Admiral Kimmel & General Short? There's been reports of a major Japanese build up in the Pacific and their entire fleet has just completely vanished. You ought to bring the state of alert at Pearl Harbor up a little bit. Oh, and you Brits over at Singapore? Yeah, same warning. Actual response: "We don't think those little yellow sons-of-biatches can do anything." And from the Brits "And if they do, we'll just shove the little fellows off."

NOT COMPLACENCY:
Boston Marathon provides National Guardsmen, Boston PD, Boston Fire Dept., assorted volunteers, other staff and first responders; in case anything--including a terrorist attack--were to happen. That's the opposite of complacent, that's preparedness.

He can't be doing both?  His obvious subtext is, "this is your fault for voting democrat."  He's saying the complacency of us commoners is why the bombing succeeded.  OUR complacency, OUR suffering.

So, take our weapons?  So we can't defend ourselves?  Granted, armed citizens could not have stopped the bombing of Boston, but I am talking about the bigger picture.  The long view.

The elephant in the room is that perfect security is impossible.  To get within the 90% percentile of perfect security (international AND domestic) would require a level of control over every action of every citizen as to make Orwell think you're over the line.  But for some unfathomable reason the average person thinks that it's a binary choice: anarchy or massively imposed order.  And of course when any form of middle ground is brought up the zealots retreat further into their partisan corners.

Just as perfect economic models cannot survive exposure to the real world and its imperfect denizens, so too fall perfect security models.  We must address the uncomfortable fact that there are among us broken souls, who choose to ignore (or simply cannot comprehend) the simple ethic that we're all members of a civilization and that civilization requires we all adapt to rules which prevent the most harm from happening to the most people.  As individuals we must be more vigilant for these broken people and deal with them in a rational manner, not ignore the fact that our community is not so exceptional after all and leave these unfortunates to huddle in their shadows and act out later.

thamike: skullkrusher: Wouldn't Independence Day make more sense from a symbolic perspective? Hitting a government building rather than a marathon route?

The marathon happens on Patriots Day which commemorates the Battles of Lexington and Concord, which kicked off the American Revolution with the "shot heard 'round the world."  The whole thing is maximum population density, especially at the finish line, and especially after the race has already been won by the athletes and the straggling townsfolk are all bunched together in the back of the line, basically walking.  Also, there is maximum media exposure.

What part of that whole scenario doesn't make sense?


I guess I don't get the "inflict as many civilian casualties as possible" angle if this were done by a guy looking to start a 2nd revolution. McVeigh wanted many casualties to make a big impact but he specifically wanted to limit non-government employee casualties and targeted the Murrah Building because it housed a number of government agencies. Other right wing terror attacks have targeted specific groups (gays, blacks, their "sympathizers", etc) but it seems pretty uncommon to just try to randomly kill a bunch of American civilians with no real symbolic target attached to it. Even Rudolph hit the Atlanta games because he thought the Olympics were socialist.

For all we know the only significance of the date is that that's the date of the marathon and the attackers thought the finish line would make a good target.

Because by and large foreign terrorism was never a major threat to Americans, even after 9/11. Looking over the Wikipedia entry, the vast majority of attacks on American soil have been carried out by Americans for other reasons than "Death to the West!" The Earth Liberation Front is on there a lot. Anti-abortionists have a bunch. Neo-nazis make a few appearances. There are a lot of angry white men pulling a Falling Down and gunning down liberals, sending mail bombs, and generally causing pipe bomb based trouble. The crazy, white terrorists outnumber the occurrences of brown people driving SUVs into pedestrians to avenge Muslim deaths by a significant degree.

You're more likely to be murdered by a crazy white person because of your Obama bumper sticker than because somebody abroad hates your freedom. If we were ever taking terrorism seriously in the first place, we would've been profiling old, white conservatives.

On the one hand, this is a strangely phrased variation of the "eternal vigilance is the price of liberty" shtick. And I kind of agree with it in an abstract way. On the other hand, though, given that our country has continually upped our law enforcement efforts non-stop since 9/11 (though not every step taken was equal in size or magnitude nor at regular time intervals) it is hard to imagine he is talking about anyone except the average American citizen here. And, frankly, the vast majority of us are more worried about our day-to-day affairs like paying bills, getting the kids to school on time, and keeping a job (or landing a job, if you're unemployed). We have enough very real, very immediate concerns to focus our attentions on that asking people or expecting them to maintain an incredibly heightened awareness towards the incredibly small (and increasingly diminishing) possibility of a particular type of concern - no matter how severe it is - is not only unreasonable, but physically and psychologically very dangerous to do (i.e. heightened awareness = more stress = more health problems, including fatigue which affects the capacity to maintain vigilance, etc. etc.). In all honesty, if we're going to up our vigilance it should be for more mundane crimes like theft, assault, property damage, or fraud, as they happen all the time. Acts of terror are so infrequent and do not warrant this kind of shaming of the general public.

Complacent?  No.  He decided to, instead of attacking the system where the best intelligence indicated the Rebels were located, target a system that had no involvement with the Rebellion, and in fact had disarmed according to the mandates passed by the Galactic Senate.  I'm convinced Tarkin was at some point slighted by Bail Organa; perhaps he was convinced Organa was behind an assassination attempt targeting his father, H.Wilhuff Tarkin.  This is the most likely reason behind his vendetta with Alderaan.

He credits law enforcement agencies for preventing attacks and says we'll keep working on that, which at least hints that the blame lies with terrorists.
That being said, it won't surprise me if the powers that be use this an yet another excuse to try and restrict our liberties.
