The rash of terror attacks.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Ralph Nader writes 'Are Washington's relentless bombings and military immersions in sectarian battles within Arab and neighboring regions accelerating the spread of terrorist attacks? Yes. The recent rash of terror attacks in Kuwait, Tunisia, Somalia, France, and other countries are tragic examples of the strategic failures of our government and its very heavy reliance on military interventions, including the omnipresent drones that terrorize civilians.

From the first bombings of al-Qaeda's small band of fighters in the mountains of Afghanistan to the toppling of the Taliban government there by President George Bush in 2001, all Washington's weaponry, soldiers, and trillions of dollars have accomplished is to spread al-Qaeda's numerous offshoots into over a dozen countries.

The CIA calls this 'blowback.' For fourteen years this 'blowback' has destabilized countries, initiated civil wars costing millions of mostly civilian lives and leaving others sickened and injured, and caused many families to be driven out of their homes as masses of weeping refugees.

In the meantime, hatred of the U.S. in those regions grows. The attackers we have helped to provoke are becoming better trained on how to use their weaponry to create more devastation over larger ranges of territories'.
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: I'm pretty sure that if you explained the logic of all this to a five year old they would readily agree that it's obvious that this shit would have happened.

Removal of resistance: The corporate world, science MUST NOTE, if such experimentation proves me right about this - is less rational than a human five year old. What is its real survivability at this time? Unification: The many catastrophes corporatism is on the brink of birthing (at least one of) are pretty much all likely to wipe out corporations long before individual humans are in any real danger of extinction although as Chomsky points out their lives will be SHIT and it'll be way way worse for everyone than now, and indeed many may well die. It's better really that we find a sane way to dismantle the corporations rather than just letting entropy kick in hard.
