More people die each year by the flu than all the deaths caused by terrorism over the last 20 years.Submitted by go213mph on Fri, 06/14/2013 - 01:42
Ok, so how many deaths have we had in the USA due to terrorism in the last 20 years? How’s about 5000 or so? Agree? A bit less? A bit more? Hum, whatever that number, while truly tragic and deeply sad, with a population of over 300 million people, this number is actually quite miniscule. In fact, more people die each year by the flu than all the deaths caused by terrorism over the last 20 years.
My fellow writer at VT Sami Jadallah provides further perspective “…the government to gain total and unconditional control over citizens, have created and imposed a sense of fear among citizens… the boogie man is out there to get you… when in fact there is close to 80,000 deaths annually from gunshots and accidents… the government has a created a terrorizing atmosphere making sure the people have no choice but to acquiesce and accept the lies… that this total invasion of privacy thwarted several and for sure False Flags terrorist events”
Hum? Okay, so according to the corporate sponsored government induced main stream media, 60% of Americans support the NSA Spying program because stopping terrorism is more important than privacy. Really? So 60% times 300 million, that’s what? 180 million people are worried that terrorists are going to get us and so we should allow the all-knowing protector to have complete control over our lives? Really?
