"We must face the absurdity of our militarism. In order to confront
the so-called "asymmetric" threat of "terrorism" we support a war
machine equal to the total military assets of the rest of the world.
Who then is the enemy? Is it not the whole world? And can we ever
protect ourselves in all the ways we are vulnerable? Can we protect
every bus, train, plane, theater, mall, stadium, reservoir or nuclear
power plant, or secure ourselves from every biological, radiological
or cyber threat, while we rain terror from the skies in so many
corners of the world? Why do we spend trillions of dollars to drive
Iraqis, Afghans, Yemenis and Pakistanis into the arms of al Qaeda?"
