The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Are We Fighting Terrorism, Or Creating More Terrorism?

But the UK is already the most intrusive surveillance state in the western world. The Manchester bomber was surely on the radar screen. According to press reports, he was known to the British intelligence services, he had traveled and possibly trained in bomb-making in Libya and Syria, his family members warned the authorities that he was dangerous, and he even flew terrorist flags over his house. What more did he need to do to signal that he may be a problem? Yet somehow even in Orwellian UK, the authorities missed all the clues.

But it is even worse than that. The British government actually granted permission for its citizens of Libyan background to travel to Libya and fight alongside al-Qaeda to overthrow Gaddafi. After months of battle and indoctrination, it then welcomed these radicalized citizens back to the UK. And we are supposed to be surprised and shocked that they attack?

The solution is obvious. More surveillance on everyone, then ignore known jihadists. In the mean time we kill more civilians thereby recruiting more terrorists.

If terrorism, like climate change, was stopped tomorrow there would be a lot of jobs on the line.

It makes you wonder who the “enemy” is.

Be seeing you
