Terror ‘Fatigue’

July 22, 2014

0911_bigHigh overcast this early Tuesday on California’s north coast, and instead of ground fog, there’s a wide, black sky hanging over us.
No stars are visible, though, just a deep dark.

Now nearly 13 years later, the attack on the World Trade Center has left the US and the world in general under a deep, black sky of horror. How in the living shit did Osama bin Laden know that George Jr. and The Dick would turn a terrible terrorist attack into something even worse — perpetual war on everything.
The old 9/11 Commission claims in a report update today, young Americans are staying away from national security jobs: We see at least two potential factors behind this troubling trend. One is the Edward Snowden leaks…A second factor is what we see as a waning sense of urgency on this issue, particularly among a younger generation for whom the 9/11 attacks were not a formative experience.

The report also claimed terror has mushroomed — thank-you George Jr. — and even worse.
From Aljazeera:

“Many Americans think that the terrorist threat is waning — that, as a country, we can begin turning back to other concerns. They are wrong,” the report said.
“The threat remains grave and the trend lines in many parts of the world are pointing in the wrong direction.”
“Al Qaeda-affiliated groups are gaining strength throughout the greater Middle East,” it added.
“While the various al Qaeda spinoffs are primarily focused on regional conflicts, they hate the United States and will not forego opportunities to strike at the U.S. homeland.”
The panel, headed by former Republican New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean and former Democratic Representative Lee Hamilton, said foreign fighters returning to Europe from Syria and Iraq pose a “grave threat” to the United States and Western Europe.
Of the 10,000 foreign fighters that have traveled to Syria, more than 1,000 hold European passports, which in most cases would enable them to enter the United States without a visa, the panel said.
More than 100 U.S. citizens also fought in Syria.
“When these battle-hardened, radicalized fighters return to their home countries, they will pose a serious terrorist threat to both the United States and Europe,” it said.

“Our serious concern now is that public fatigue and waning urgency will undermine these accomplishments. We cannot afford that,” the report said.

Until people figure out the US made a bad situation worse, and the constant bullshit thrown all around, the “public fatigue” will only get more set in place.
Terror is tiring if the played like a game.
