The 100% Solution
In Germany’s DW- WORLD-DE, we saw the headline, “US, EU seek consensus on securing cargo shipments from terrorists”, so we just had to read the story. The first paragraph simply stated that;
“Washington views commercial cargo shipments as a potential source of terrorist attacks, if strict monitoring standards are not implemented. US Homeland Security chief Napolitano is in Europe to advocate the US position.”
The US position? One had to read between the lines to know what that really meant.
“Washington does not currently plan to implement a congressional requirement that calls for every single container to be screened at its port of departure before shipping off for the United States, US Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano said as she toured Europe to discuss trans-Atlantic security cooperation.
“‘We believe the so-called 100 percent requirement is probably not the best way to go,’ Napolitano said Wednesday in Rotterdam.
“In the decade since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Washington has sought to implement its own stringent security standards at airports and commercial ports around the world in order to counter the perceived threat of another impending terrorist strike …”
To their credit, her European audience didn’t hoot at her or even snicker, even though, unlike semi-literate American TV watchers, the great majority of Europeans know exactly who orchestrated and carried out the “terrorist” attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. But discretion is the better part of valor. Mum’s the word. The “business of fear” is an international undertaking.
And unlike the sheeple in the U.S., Europeans also know that the “perceived threat of another impending terrorist strike” is already in the works, and inspecting/scanning 100 percent of container cargo, therefore, would put the kibosh on false flag operations. There must be no impediments … that’s why billions of taxpayer dollars have been spent on defective security equipment and demeaning personnel.
If “terrorists” really and truly existed, our government would have hopped all over our patented container ship. Our on-board storage and retrieval system would have enabled security personnel to examine every single container while the vessel was en route to our shores. In less than a week – and long before the ship docked at a U.S. port – 100 percent inspection would be completed, and any suspicious containers would be identified and properly dealt with.
Knowing that any attempt at “terrorism” would be thwarted, perpetrators – even if they were real – would be inclined to devise other, more practical methods to frighten Americans. It’s the weapons industry that enriches politicians, not abundant employment opportunities.
