We place OUR dictators so we can rob their resources (Think Saudi Arabia) as long as we can do that we will not bomb them.Then we place sanctions on them until they have nothing left, then we bomb them to the "Stone Age"

And then they have no choice but to come safer places (To us). Some will seek revenge as they have lost whole families. They cannot see the difference between 100,000's of theirs we have killed (probably remotely) and them killing an innocent on our land. What did we expect? We could kill their's indefinitely - without any comeback??? We call them "crazy" - but we have made them "crazy"

We MUST learn to live and let live! Until then, there cannot be peace "over there" or "over here"! We MUST stop the evil that we started. Until then, no possible peace on Earth.

Terror is an instrument in the hands of the Almighty. He uses the wicked to destroy the wicked. Nobody is safe when He strikes and He never misses a target. “Shall there be evil in the city, and Yah Veh hath not worked it?” “The wages of sin is death”.

He's sure missed Las Vegas so far. There the wages of sin sure seem to buy a great deal. Nobody is safe when he strikes? He's on strike, then, is he?

I was mainly thinking about the ubiquitous surveillance. However, if you compare the definition of orwellian with recent history, the other characteristics of an orwellian society are quite accurate as well.

How very noble!

On a side note, in 2015 you were about 30 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist in the US.
