Creating yet another security agency on top of several other antiquated security agencies, and then under-funding that agency - is not safer. Dividing a nation from it's allies with diplomatic actions that only resemble an ape beating it's chest - is not safer. Ignoring the fact that we don't like - is not safer. Lying about the status of every situation to every decision maker and ally - is not safer. Creating a culture war within our nation rather then dealing with the problems that face us - is not safer. Smashing open a hornets nest of a nation without a plan - is not safer. Making promises to other nations with no intentions of keeping those promises - is not safer. Removing one hostile leader from power while creating an environment for several more to rise up - is not safer. Poking every enemy we have all at once - is not safer. Constantly making threats such as: "for us or against us" - is not safer. Never allowing this nation to investigate the real source of security and military failures - is not safer.
