Explosives sent from Yemen to the U.S.

Today the U.S. intercepted bombs sent to the America from Yemen, apparently intended for synagogues in Chicago. The United States is now screening packages coming from Yemen.

This raises numerous questions: Isn't that discrimination against the people of Yemen who send packages to America? Are we doing this just because they are Muslims? Isn't this racial profiling?

Rather than discriminating against the peaceful Muslims of Yemen, perhaps we should be randomly screening all packages--especially those coming from American Christians who, as everyone knows, are just as dangerous as radical Muslims.

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the Middle East. This is probably due to American imperialist oppression so if our President would just go to Yemen and bow to their ruler and give them several billion dollars in aid, perhaps they would be nice to us and stop trying to bomb us.

Never mind. I was just trying to think like a liberal.
