Cut It Down

The word “imminent” is the new buzzword being thrown around by American government officials. When applied as a preface to ‘terrorism’, the word imminent takes on a supremely vague new meaning and can be applied to literally any situation and basically any country, in order to justify the installation of a military presence.

I could say that the tree beside my house is an imminent threat. It might fall down onto my house and injure me. I should cut it down.
