Do you really believe that we are the enemy? Then why don't you move to Iraq or Palestine and strap on a bomb and live (or die) by your beliefs and convictions? Or do you simply believe that enemies should not be engaged or dealt with?

But don't buy your plane ticket yet... I have news. Muslim extremists have wanted to kill “infidels” long before Bin Laden re-popularized the program with a new face. What ever gave you the notion that Bin Laden was unique in his hatred for America? (and I would include our Allies as well) Now that the dream of having a nuke is actually within reach for the non-infidel world, they are reaching. I really can’t blame them for reaching or us for stopping them. Neither side will have 100% success 100% of the time. Both sides will have successes and failures as the “terrorist war” continues. Speaking for myself, I hope “we” win! And I would never do anything to give comfort or lip service to the enemy, even if I had some valid criticism of how our side comes up shorter than 100% from time to time.

Personally I think that much of the “failure” in Iraq is due to the fact that we didn’t come up with WMD’s predicted by the massive intelligence agencies all over the free world. I am curious how such well equipped and funded agencies were fooled or could get it wrong. I have no evidence, but my gut feeling is that we were fooled, but only because we announced months ahead that we were going to strike. The CIA isn’t stupid and neither is our enemy. If you knew you were going to be hit, what would you do, hide your WMD’s, or not hide them? LOL  I think what was there has gone to Syria and other American hating countries before we even got there. Our acting in a politically correct to appease the UN and democrats with a countdown way may have severely weakened our security, verses launching an unannounced strike and coming up with an full bag.
