    45% of said terrorism occured inside Iraq. Furthermore, what did people think was going to be the case after 9/11? It reminds me of people citing the increased ability of terrorist groups to recruit post Iraq and Afghanistan. I'd think that would be a no brainer. Flip that thinking, and look at US military recruiting post 9/11. Did terrorists think that americans wouldn't be feel compelled to join the fight after being attacked on 9/11? So why should think different after Iraq and Afghanistan?

    Where did you come across that? Or are you just playing?

    Terrorism is real. The way its been portrayed by Bush Co. is not. Terrorism is a tactic. Can you wage war on a tactic? Nope.

    When Rudy goes out in front of cameras and tells everyone a great tale about how great he has been in fighting terrorism, then the Bush camp will understand. Rudy didnt use a military. He used old fashioned police power and investigation, all the things Kerry was ridiculed for even suggesting.

    Whatever word you want to call it we are fighting it through many fronts. We follow the money and try and dry that up when possible. We monitor all types of media for "chatter" we tap phone conversations of certain overseas calls and we have agents overseas working day and night trying expose terrorists. And yes we use the military too. It will be an option under any administration

    Many fronts? How about the homefront??

    Securing ports?
    Chemical plants?
    Nukes?

    Umm...No, No...and barely.

    Oh, thats comforting. Im sure the Iraqis are truly grateful we've bestowed this gift upon them. :rolleyes:

    That can't be why they want us out could it?

    We need better efforts there, clearly and I won't use the phrase "war on terror" if it makes you feel better.

    Yeah, let's just keep sending them Americans to kill overseas and they'll probably leave us alone for awhile.

    Would you prefer they fight our armed soldiers in Iraq or innocent civilians someplace else?

    Don't do that! Someone radical savage might get offended. Oh, and don't write corrections in red, it's pscycologically damaging. Use purple, it's happier. :D

    I would prefer a different approach altogether. Perhaps you should broaden your thinking.

    Thats what they were saying when Clinton was in office post-1993. What was he doing so well that Bush can't seem to do??

    Nothing, obviously or the 9-11 attack would have been thwarted. Everyone was aseep at the switch prior to that. I guess they shouldn't have been saying that after all. Everyone was under a false sense of security.

    Thats right and as soon as we surrender and make Reid/Pelosi the King and Queen of America they will be back and the bombs will go off.

    Clinton was down on Martha's Vineyard playing spin the bottle with the movie stars while Mohammad Atta was in Florida learning how to fly but not land, the Muslim Killers trained under Clinton, nobody was looking. THEN THEY HIT 9/11.
