If, however, nothing changes and the terrorism continues, this government may need to turn its embassies around the world into armed fortresses. We can bet that going into the future some of them will be closed permanently because protecting our diplomats will become virtually impossible. And, as is already happening, more and more Americans will be forced to curtail their travel to foreign countries.

So where do we go from here? Has America dug itself into a deep hole from which it cannot extract itself? Is this government incapable of changing? Well, if this government continues to use military power to control, intimidate and dominate other nations to "protect its interests" then we can fully expect terrorism to increase exponentially. And, talk about irony, as this country's foreign policy continues on this disastrous course, there are still those that proclaim that it is an exceptional nation. Somehow, this seems to be a disconnect.

When will this government understand that there is a direct correlation between military hubris and terrorism? When will it stop creating its own enemies?
