Terrorism a long-term threat? Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates says that the fight against terrorists should be the nation's top military priority over coming decades, according to a new National Defense Strategy. The overwhelming problems with this statement is that it uses semantics to incite our inclination to fight. They always point out the success of their programs but never a mention of the civil liberties that each and every one of us loose. The simple fact is, that in order to fight the so called "War of Terror" we have to become a complete police state, totally under the watchful eyes of our keepers and we have to forfeit our rights to be heard by our peers because it is not expedient enough a process to work within the rules of engagement in our war.
