Over at Defense and the National Interest they note that the no fly list is at a million no flyers. It appears Bill Lind and his crew are not amused. To quote those skeptics,
Your first reaction might be that if the number of terrorists is into seven figures we are truly doomed — it only took 19 plus a support organization of perhaps a few dozen to carry out 9/11.
We say why fight the progression. It is foolish to do things piecemeal. Let's go for it and put everyone in the country on the no fly list. Look at the problems we take care of.
1. The oil crisis is solved.
2. We can finally stop shaking in our boots. A nation on lockdown is a safe nation.
3. It'll probably happen anyway. Better we do it at one fell swoop then taking years.
4. There will be no more problems with the frisky friskers at airports having their passionate desire to do a good job being mistaken for passionate desire.
This list of benefits is surely not exhaustive, but we at the voice of humility have only so much time to spend saving the nation.
Still, if the Department of Fatherland Security, wishes to call on us, we are here for them.
