You know the US government says stuff like this *all the time*.

No way! Two different countries that're both involved in operating ECHELON have been known to make similar justifications for their data-gathering activities?! You don't say!

Seriously, though; are you attempting to imply that it's therefore acceptable for the U.K. to say stuff like this, because the U.S. says it?? If not, what, exactly are you trying to say? Because what you did say clearly came across as a reactionary and poorly-thought-out attempt to divert attention away from the actual matter at hand...

personally i'd rather be killed by a runaway machine

I know I'd much rather be killed by bots controlled by, say, the Norwegians or the Danish (or someone else equally civilized, operating under the U.N. banner) than by someone with an obviously fascist or totalitarian agenda, like my own beloved government or perhaps that of China, the UK or North Korea...

Power corrupts. And atomic power corrupts atomically.
