    Obama commented at a news conference with Argentine President Mauricio Macri, one day after the Islamic State group claimed responsibility for terrorist attacks Tuesday in Belgium that killed more than 30 people.

    President Barack Obama says the Islamic State group isn't an existential threat to us.

    :nutpunch: It will only take one large scale attack in the US to push us over the edge. Think of the billions if not trillions of dollars 9/11 cost our country...

    This.


    Fascinating opinion piece in todays New York Times on standing with Europe and Belgium during this latest crisis, and not over reacting.

    What makes the piece so interesting is the comments section, which about 90% disagrees with the opinion piece.

    The New York Times comment section. :grad:

    You guys do realize the definition of the term "existential threat?" I'll let you google it I'm too tired to give you a 9th grade basic English/History lesson again.

    Excellent point that's rarely discussed. And the cost to our freedom and time and effort shifted from other things to deal with these throwback is incalculable. It makes the Cold War look quaint.

    Yep all of the TSA agents hired, 400k+ Homeland security agents, federal air marshals, wars, all of those bullshit machines that stop nothing at the airports. That POS patriot act that allows to government to pretty much spy anything it wants. All because a couple of asshole crashed planes into a building.

    If an attack happens again it would show that all of this security is nothing more than an overpriced facade.
