With the successful shoot-down of an ailing spy in the sky, the U.S. has demonstrated to the world that we can get where ever you are. The reasons given for this action are varied. The reason that concerns me most is the effort to conceal the contents from the world. Some say we need to keep our surveillance methods a secret. Secret from who? In this day and age most countries that we keep track of can already tell if we are keeping track of them. Unless you fear a military invasion and occupation, this is a farce. And anyone with that fear is living in the last century. Does anyone really think a foreign power is going to attack us that way. And even if they did, does anyone think the people will just surrender and cooperate? Good luck with that! Iraq has shown us that force cannot bring victory in these times.
