Is the war on terrorism for real?
15 Jul 2002

Take the one question quiz.

Here is the question:

Given the unprecidented increases in security implemented since 9/11, why has the
flow of illegal drugs into the US not been stopped or significantly reduced?


Comment:

How much cocaine and heroin has crossed the US border since 9/11? One would think that the
flow of drugs would have been reduced if not practically eliminated. Where are the headlines?

"Increased security from 'War on Terror' drastically reduces illegal drug flow across border"

or

"'War on Terror' bolsters 'War on Drugs'.

In fact, has there been any effect from the so called 'War on Terror' on the inflow of illegal drugs
into the United States? If a drug runner can get through with a kilo of heroin, a terrorist could get through
with a kilo of anthrax, right? This leaves only two logical conclusions:

The 'War on Terror' is a total failure in that it cannot even stop drugs from coming across the border.

or

There is something we do not know about how drugs are being brought into this country.

The same security precautions are used to fight both of the so called wars, and the 'War of Terror' has
caused all of these security areas to be increased to unprecedented levels. Ah but the drugs keep
coming in just as they always have despite the increases in security. What is really going on?

Ask this question to everyone who will listen. Write your Congress person and ask them this question. If you cannot get
a reasonable, logical answer, ask yourself what then are you getting for the billions in tax dollars being
spent to fight these "wars"?
