The sad fact of the matter is, ~99% of the world's terrorists are of middle eastern stock
Wow, you should apply for a job at the State Department and straighten all those other analysts out, because you obviously know something no one else does.
we have been attacked by them repeatedly
Twice counts as repeatedly I suppose.
and to ignore them at security checkpoints just because we don't want to appear insensitive to them is fucking ridiculous.
Yes, by all means let's be insensitive! Why don't we take a page from the good ol' days of dubya dubya two and inter them, and the japs, and any other non-whites...just to be safe.
Yes, I do apologize to all the middle eastern people who are NOT terrorists (which is 99.999999999999999999999999% of them), but sadly, you will have to suffer under the bad actions of some of your countrymen. This is an imperfect world.
And the Middle-East likewise apologizes for the actions of the tiniest percentage of extremists - most of whom were financed and trained by your government to do its dirty business for it, and yet you somehow seem surprised when it came back to bite you in the ass. Not to mention that it was your government's policies and actions - along with the murder of several million people because of those policies and actions (directly and indirectly) versus those of a few thousand on you side that tends to make you enemies. Can't expect to stomp all over the globe exploiting and killing and not piss a few people off along the way.
Search every middle eastern male between the age of 16-50 at airports. I'm fine with continuing random spot checks, but until such a time as we see attacks by a large number of white dudes, yellow women or green martians, we need to focus on the ethnic group that's so far been PROVEN to be a potential threat.
Tell that to the 100K+ dead Iraqi and Afghani people who have been indiscriminately killed by "white dudes" over the last 3 years. Oh right, I forgot, that's different.
