In an advertisement of the US Air Force they say, their task is to ensure that the potential threats have no place to hide, showing on the screen a Middle Eastern or an Asian town. It occured to me, that the Air Force is probably not exactly fit to look for the enemies in the populous towns, as shown on the screen, unless they bomb them indiscriminately or employ flies to spy on the people.
I was also facsinated with the construction “potential threats”. Anything can be attributed to being a potential threat, can’t it? Perhaps it would have been better to say actual threats or simply threats, otherwise anything and anyone in the world and in the US could be considered as a potential target of the US Air Force.
