There is a war raging on the net with islamist extremists and the police all veering for victory over each other. maybe we should discuss my ideas i have had today so far? 'Pie spy' i had a while ago. this is a program where we find relationships over email and telephonic contact, where we can pin the known terrorists to people they speak to a lot, and, then investigate. 'Breakthrough' is where the police find information illegally, and, pay the people or person to testify that they went to the police with a long story, where they found the information they are giving to the police, a little wrong lie for a lot of good. 'Smugglers' was an idea to list the people that stole away to other regions, or left home unexpectedly, and, joined the militants. knowing who they are and where they are is important, as they might know something if involved enough, yes? These are my two best ideas so far, but there is a problem with the privacy of persons that are incriminated. they simply cannot have their privacy invaded, but, let me give you examples of where it seems to be okay; At air ports, they search through luggage for drugs yes? at borders, they search the cars for illegal stuff, of course. what is the difference in searching through contact numbers and bank transactions to find terrorists? the right to privacy seems to overshadow the really important right to live safely, so, let us try to get past this problem to security and deal with the fourth amendment? As of now, america is in no real danger of 'being bombed.' i don't know the specs, but, i know they must have some drug dealers in their prisons from these areas, people that would know where to get a prostitute, a gun, or, indeed, bomb making materials, yes? the thing is timers, the manure used for bombs of today is too easy to get hold of and too hard to regulate, yes? people interested in making bombs would seek the anarchist's cookbook or equivalent wiki leaks stuff - i hope you see how dangerous snowden is now? - and then involve many in these acts. The ground wars are not really that challenging, as they will come down to actual soldiers fighting people on drugs, yes?
