It's Time...

Call me idealistic, but know what? I don't think there's any reason to continue having intelligence departments. All ours ever do is foment coup d'etats, assassinate popular leaders, smuggle heroin, rig the vote (american and foreign), and generally misunderstand foreign cultures so that the leaders make moves that will fuck everyone over 50-100 years later.

I am reading a book called, "Peace To End All Peace Creating The Modern Middle East 1914 1922" : DS63.2.G7 F76 1989 (Fromkin, David). It's long, but the basic jist is this: Nobody in Europe understood the MidEast and in fact, make proclamations and promises that were opposite to the intended meaning. It's a depressing book. A few intelligence departments, and a handful of leaders in each empire were making decisions blind. Millions of soldiers died. And afterwards, due to all of the promises and cultural misunderstandings made by the Allies, totally fucked over the Middle East.

Here's an article by an Iranian.

And as soon as the state gets some warped sense of power, the intelligence departments just harrass, imprison, torture, and kill the layman.

Did I mention that they constantly lie?

We are supposed to be a great Christian nation and yet, all of the departments of state are principally engaged in lying.
