Should The Public Be Told If Our Lives Are In Danger?

What is your first response to this question, is it something like “well of course we want to know”? But if we take a moment to analyze the breath of that question, would we? How much information is enough information for a government to issue warnings or for them to shut down a transportation grid? Then again, how does a law enforcement agency decide which warning signs to pay attention to or even which people to believe when they get a tip? If every law enforcement agency in the country submitted every single threat they receive to their superiors (government politicians) there would never be enough well-trained investigators to follow-up on them all. If you had the option to look back throughout your life and see and to be told every time that you were in some serious bodily danger but had skated on by without noticing it, would you really have wanted to know ahead of time of that danger? If so, what if you had then acted differently thus causing you and or others physical harm or even your lives?

 

As most everyone in the wired world knows by now a Russian Commercial airplane was blown out of the sky by an ISIS bomb over northern Egypt two years ago this month. This act of murder and yes this act of war by the ISIS State killed 224 people of which 219 were Russian citizens. I have read articles where other travelers had said they had seen an increase in security at this same airport (Sharm el-Sheikh airport) where this flight, #9268 had just left. These people tell us that a surface to air missile was fired at another commercial airline jet in late August of this year in this same area. So the question comes to bear, how many of these now dead people would have taken the chance of taking their family vacations there if they had known about the missile attack? How many would have said no, no I will not take that chance with the lives of my family? Another question, if everyone knew everything about everything, would anything ever go forward and be accomplished? As a society would most folks cower in a corner crying and peeing in their boots if they knew of all of the threats to their lives everyday? How much information is enough information and whom is it that is to decide that issue for us before we ever become aware that it is an issue? Could it be that this is one of those questions that either has no answer at all, or about seven billion of them?

Syria Says U.S. Has Fired Missiles At Homs Airbase: U.S. Denies It

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF CNN)

 

The Pentagon has denied Syrian claims the US attacked a Homs air base Sunday, hours after President Donald Trump tweeted “Animal Assad” would have a “big price to pay” for an alleged chemical weapons attack.

Syrian State TV said the T-4 airbase in Homs, in the country’s west, had been hit by “several missiles” in a “likely attack by the US,” early Monday morning local time.
Citing a military source, the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency said the attack had caused an unspecified number of deaths and injuries.
A senior US administration official told CNN Sunday that reports from the region claiming US Tomahawk missiles had struck targets in Syria were not true.
The Pentagon also issued a statement denying the attack.
“At this time, the Department of Defense is not conducting air strikes in Syria. However, we continue to closely watch the situation and support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable,” a Pentagon statement said.

On Sunday, Trump said there would be a “big price to pay” after an alleged chemical weapons attack on the city of Douma Saturday, which the US blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
In a series of tweets, Trump also criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin and Tehran, saying “Russian and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad.”
