You want to know why I’m going to war against the war on terror?
Because terror is a war against the war on freedom.
The war on terror is a war against freedom.
Terrorists want to destroy the war on the war against the war on the world.
This war against terror is a war against human wars against civilization.
It is a war against a way of life against life.
The terrorists do have an interest, as do our enemies.
Our enemies just might dare to dare to do something.
Isn’t there a risk that they might risk succeeding?
Yes, I’m afraid that I’m afraid there is.
I’m very concerned by that prospect’s prospects.
I just hope that there is a response to put a stop to that response.
In other words, we can’t give up on our liberties.
But isn’t ‘liberty’ another word for terror?
Yes, and we’re precisely talking about terrorists so try and keep up.

Take note, all city governments:
HQ2: Understanding What Happened & Why
It is not in the local governments’ interests to create a race to the bottom. And given Amazon’s size and skills, it is no longer in their own interests to encourage governments to be giving out special tax breaks to its future competitors. Had they though this thorough, played out all of the game theory here, Amazon had the ability to lock in a strategic advantage.
Instead of capturing the lion share of tax breaks for themselves, they could have had the city commit ALL of the incentives to rebuilding the infrastructure around where they were locating the HQ2. Highways, subways, schools, parks, etc. This missed that chance.
