"Mr. Holder announced that the White House would convene an international forum on Feb.18 to discuss new means of countering terrorism"
What this has meant in the past is The Patriot Act. This situation will probably cause more surveillance, more military spending, more of everything we don't need. Somehow governments haven't got the memo. There are people in the world who are going to do bad things and you will never be able to control that. How is it that the "terrorists" responsible for the atrocity in Paris were identified as such, were able to travel, were on a watch list, everything put in place to stop this sort of thing from happening failed, it failed because it obviously doesn't work. It's an excuse to put more infrastructure in place on law abiding people. Anyone up to no good will always be able to figure out a way to fade and evade the system. People, in general, won't look closely at where these men came from "The three men were all members of the same Paris jihadist cell that a decade ago sent young French volunteers to Iraq to fight U.S. forces."

Yeah, about that war in Iraq, spreading democracy all around the world. The article in Reuters doesn't say we need to be spreading good will instead of war, because that's not very profitable. No one I know is even talking about this situation, firstly because most Americans don't pay attention to other countries. There may as well not be other countries. I only know of one person, other than myself who owns a passport.
There was an estimated one million people who went on a "unity march" good for them, but exactly what will that change I wonder? Maybe that wasn't the point, but you would think some action would be demanded by the people.
In America, more people died in the Sandy Hook massacre and well, just can't do anything about it, because that would send gun nuts and manufacturers into the stratosphere, however something happens in Paris and the President is going to host some international forum, whatever. Wonder what corporation is salivating at the thought of profiting from some defense, Homeland Security, surveillance contract? Probably the one that told President Obama it would be a great idea to have an international forum and brainstorm the next fix-it
Dada movement in art. Which came out of the horror of World War I. I think it should be called the Anti-Intelligence movement. First of all I don't see many signs of intelligence, second, intelligence agencies own the bureaucrats and we should be resisting them at all costs. This is where the attention should be. We should be rejecting any more influence of the NSA, CIA, scrap the whole thing and use that money for something radical like free college for all!

Hey, President Obama, why a meager two years? Why don't you really blow my mind and go for four years, then maybe compromise on two, like your always doing. This is another empty gesture that will go nowhere, just like universal healthcare. Thanks for that but how about you end the drone strikes and call for Universal Peace? I know, how about an international forum about peace or hunger or something productive?
Yeah I know, what am I thinking? I should be anti-thinking!
