You spin me right around, baby, right around

The national security state must be expanded in order to guarantee the security of those who secure the state:

Last month, President Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser, John O. Brennan, delivered a speech in which he strongly denied the accusation that the administration had sometimes chosen to kill militants when capturing them was possible, saying the policy preference is to interrogate them for intelligence.

The memorandum is said to declare that in the case of a citizen, it is legally required to capture the militant if feasible — raising a question: was capturing Mr. Awlaki in fact feasible?

It is possible that officials decided last month that it was not feasible to attempt to capture him because of factors like the risk it could pose to American commandos and the diplomatic problems that could arise from putting ground forces on Yemeni soil. Still, the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan demonstrates that officials have deemed such operations feasible at times. [emph. added]

The number of soldiers in the field has to be increased so as to increase the security of the soldiers in the field.

The number of police has to be increased so as to increase the security of the police.

Every action demonstrates the need for more action; there is no such thing as overreaction.

You can never be too safe.

the absurdity that these acts of violence come to an end, have no reverberations…
