Who will become the new face of the terrorist enemy?
Saddam Hussein was executed. Bin laden has been killed. It appears that Muammar Gaddafi (Libya) will slip away quietly. So, who will the U.S. government present to the public as the new face of the enemy? For over 10 years they have had to put a new head on the hydra monster everytime one is removed. Remember, they lose control unless we are banded together against a common threat. Any predictions?
Maybe they will let us fight natural disasters for a little while - can't riot when your too busy trying to get through to the latest Clinton/Bush donation fund. Great question Jonesy
I think, Jonesy, that we're going to see a shift in terrorism for a while. Mostly individual and small unit attacks on soft targets rather than coordinated efforts requiring serious logistical preparations for a large group. We may well see a leader in Islamic countries and territories, but in western countries we're going to get the slightly off balanced individual who has related to a terrorist individually, or dogmatically.
The flag burners come to mind............any single one of them.
i am starting to feel Pakistan is going to be next may be not militarily but it will be a battle of wits and diplomacy that much i feel cause the way things are going it seems that pitch has broken and America and Pakistan are going to be a against each other in a battle of interest
I think it will be a sort of phantasmal, collective enemy with no face or name; so that we can loosely say "they" are out out there trying to get us. The US did it for years with the communists and now the terrorists have taken the place as a convenient excuse for military buildup in peacetime. The sooner we start to replace the word "terrorist" with any other noun (without an adjective in front of it) in our vocabulary, the safer we will be as a society.
