Why would they want to? Whipping up public fear has been a distinct feature of US and Australian policies in the past few months (in the US' case, ever since Sept. 11th, of course). It's easier to get things done when the people you lead are too scared to question your actions.Originally posted by Phillip Tanaka
Which makes me think...why doesn't someone comfirm that whoever threatens these actions has the ability to carry them out? I would have thought it to be Standered Operating Procedure, and it may already have, but it would weed out the, pardon the language here, cunts who can and would follow through with their threats and cunts who are just trying to take advantage of a fearful, post Sept. 11 world.
