  •  and the enemy (8+ / 0-)

    is not a nation state but instead anybody who is declared a terrorist or who aids an abets terrorism. This is a really Orwellian 'war' as like you said it is design to be endless. Who decides who's a terrorist or a terrorist org? Is wikileaks?   The definition of the enemy is so amorphous that it includes insurgents, militants, extremists, propagandists, jhadist's, harborer's,  and even people who might in the future be terrorists and 'kill yer family' (pre-criminals)   It's anybody anywhere that resists this sick geopolitical neocon NWO. It also means that here in der Homeland we have lost our civil or human rights. It is the mother of the unconstitutional anti-democratic security/police state we are living in and to top it off it does not keep anyone safe. Totally irrational as well as immoral illegal and criminal.  

    Where's my habeas Corpus?      

    •  good question you asked - what happened (3+ / 0-)

      to the rule of law

      we fought a revolution against a monarch

      and now we have a monarch

      thus, we are not following the constitution


      you asked, where is my habeas Corpus?

      shucks, it has only been around for about 500 years

      because the King had arbitrary power

      but now a days we are looking forward, not backward at the tyranny that led to the American revolution
