Chris Simmons says that since 9-11 America has spent trillions for the purported purpose of making the homeland more secure. Much of that money has been wasted and hasn’t accomplished very little, if anything. The number of Americans killed by Al Qaeda each year is very few and yet we’re spending hundreds of billions defending against this remote threat. Things in Syria are heating up and the Kurds are fleeing by the thousands. Chris is extremely concerned about this development. The Kurds are an extremely hardy people, who are used to living in a hostile environment, so for them to be running is an ominous sign.
