So there was a bombing in Yemen a few days ago (which was linked to some Spaniards) as well as a terrorist attack attempt in England.
I am sooo frustrated because these people keep making the world smaller and smaller. I think about all the people who will have to deal with extra bull-Sh&^$ because of the actions of a few rotten apples.
I am usually detained when returning to the U.S. from a Middle Eastern country (even in the case of Yemen, where the U.S. government actually sponsored my trip!!!). What is going to happen the next time I go to Europe and my Egyptian, Moroccan and Yemeni visas all conspicuously available for review?
What about all the people that desperately and honestly are seeking opportunities for a better life in England or some other Western nation, but will be occluded from doing so, because of suspicion that they might be a terrorist?
When will non-violent protest become all the rage again? When will fundamentalists (of any religion or political leaning) realize that attempts to force the world to their point of view will only be that: strong-handed, iron-willed attempts?
argh!!! globalization sucks sometimes.
