John Whitehead: America's Reign of Terror: A Nation Reaps What It Sows

If it wasn't America it would be another county, I know. Japan has a reputation of being ruthless imperialists, so lucky they're kept under control. Every country's citizens needs to reign in its elite, who seem, collectively, to be pretty psychopathic.

Who designed the malware worm that is now wreaking havoc on tens of thousands of computers internationally by hackers demanding a king's ransom? The U.S. government 
Who is the biggest black market buyer and stockpiler of cyberweapons (weaponized malware that can be used to hack into computer systems, spy on citizens, and destabilize vast computer networks)? The U.S. government 
What country has one the deadliest arsenals of weapons of mass destruction? The U.S. government. 
Who is the largest weapons manufacturer and exporter in the world, such that they are literally arming the world? The U.S. government. 
Which is the only country to ever use a nuclear weapon in wartime? The United States. 
How did Saddam Hussein build Iraq's massive arsenal of tanks, planes, missiles, and chemical weapons during the 1980s? With help from the U.S. government. 
Who gave Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida "access to a fortune in covert funding and top-level combat weaponry"? The U.S. government. 
What country has a pattern and practice of entrapment that involves targeting vulnerable individuals, feeding them with the propaganda, know-how and weapons intended to turn them into terrorists, and then arresting them as part of an elaborately orchestrated counterterrorism sting? The U.S. government. 
Where did ISIS get many of their deadliest weapons, including assault rifles and tanks to anti-missile defenses? From the U.S. government. 
Which country has a history of secretly testing out dangerous weapons and technologies on its own citizens? The U.S. government. 
Are you getting the picture yet? 
The U.S. government isn't protecting us from terrorism. 
The U.S. government is creating the terror. It is, in fact, the source of the terror.
Just think about it for a minute: almost every tyranny being perpetrated against the citizenry--purportedly to keep us safe and the nation secure--has come about as a result of some threat manufactured in one way or another by our own government.
Unfortunately, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, "we the people" are the ones who keep reaping what the government sows. 
US Blowback

It's okay when the "good guys" do it.

That's it. People think only foreigners do bad things. But we're good. People don't notice the endless wars carried out in far away places.
