If it doesn't make HEADLINES they won't put it on the news or print it. What's headlines about people not living in fear?

"If it bleeds it leads."

As for fear, in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and as remote a place as once peaceful Bali, since 9/11 millions fear the terrorists more than they did. Who is not living in fear?

Then there is North Korea and Iran, we fear their political and military stance.

Never in our nation's history have so many feared the actions of so few. A $450+ billion defense/homeland security budget is a response to the fear of the belligerent attitudes of others. For an examination of the response at sea, look at http://www.patriotfiles.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=38585.

Now I am Brit, and Iwatch a number of different Countries News Channels. Watching the ones from America I find that they will only report the news that affects America. Well thats fine as far as it goes, but some thing may and does happen that does not affect America at this moment in time but could have a huge knock on effect in the future and it is ignored.

This Day in History
1916: The Russians force the Turkish 3rd Army back to Erzurum.

1942: General MacArthur repels the Japanese in Bataan.

1943: The deportation of Jews from the Warsaw ghetto to the concentration camp at Treblinka is resumed-but not without much bloodshed and resistance along the way.

1945: The German Army launches its second attempt to relieve the besieged city of Budapest from the advancing Red Army.

1950: Peoples Republic of China formally recognizes the communist Democratic Republic of Vietnam and agrees to furnish it military assistance.

1951: China rejected the U.N. cease-fire proposal as the Eighth Army re-entered Wonju without opposition.

1953: U.S. Navy carrier aircraft hit targets at Wonsan, Songjin, Hungnam and Changyon on the North Korea's east coast while surface elements fired on Sinchon and Kosong targets.

1953: The U.S. Coast Guards were dispatched from Sangley Point to save the crew of a Navy Lockheed P2V reconnaissance plane. They landed in 12-foot seas, risking their own crew to save their Navy counterparts. The Coast Guard fished 11 survivors from the wrecked plane. Tragically the Coast Guards port engine failed during take off, slamming the plane back into the cold waters of the South China Sea. Seven of the rescued Navy fliers survived this second crash; however, most of the Coast Guard crew was lost.

1962: The United States begins spraying foliage with herbicides in South Vietnam, in order to reveal the whereabouts of Vietcong guerrillas.

1985: For the first time since joining the World Court in 1946, the United States walks out of a case. The case that caused the dramatic walkout concerned U.S. paramilitary activities against the Nicaraguan government.
