So I guess that would make Neville Chamberlain the historical figure most consistent with your outlook.....

The fact is that the interdiction of terror is not working. Not by the U.S. intelligence, but by leads from other countries. We still have a broken link, 5 years after 9/11.

The Taliban is trying to make a comeback but instead of paying host to Bin laden they are now having to fight for their lives having been evicted from power
They are not trying. They are. How many NATO troops dies last week?

I don't know about you but I don't want the Germans ruling over me. I don't believe in holding a grudge forever but we must never forget that the western civilization that the German's helped to birth was almost destroyed by those same people but 60 years ago. Not a long time on the scale of history. And the abject humiliation they experienced by having their country divided and occupied for a half century after the war was well deserved.
What's the difference? Bush regime is damn close to living under Adolf. The only difference is that Adolf did not like Jews, and Bush does not like ragheads. Do you know the difference between Democracy and Dictatorship? Nothing!! Our Central Gov't gives us Citizen Joe something called freedom to occupying our attention so we don't have time to question what are being done behind closed doors. Whereas, our opposite don't even bother. The Central Gov't tell their Citizen Joe how to live their lives as they see fit and promise an iron rice bowl in return. Both methods are illusions used to control the masses. Which method is better is all subjective. Talk about humilation. The U.S. is at its lowest point ever in its short history.

And against such an enemy there is only one effective response: We will never back down, we will never give in and we will never accept anything less than complete victory. . We will defeat the terrorists and their hateful ideology by spreading the hope of freedom across the world. . The security of our nation depends on the advance of liberty in other nations."
-President George W. Bush, July 4, 2006

Here's how the Washington Post reported it:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...090500481.html

That's a mission statement not a strategy. Show me a plan, you know something I actually paid for. So far I think we are spreading the hope that we leave them alone because I don't see them coming in droves to help stabilize their own situations.

What kind of knucklehead publishes his military planning?

And like you have the training to understand military planning even if it were published.

Another tidbit. We absolutely suck at this shit where you can't tell the good guys from the bad guys. Just like in Vietnam. We have been studied and then goaded into action. We always respond and do what the terrorists want us to do, as, with this dimbulb, Texas cowpoke mentality - we were called out to a draw and by god we are going to draw just like the good guys in the movies - the terrorists are in charge.

Well put , but how come you didn't get called a skinhead as I did when saying the same ? And if America had slapped one down on them , I don't think the world would have been up in arms over it , if it had been done on the 12th , I was sure that was going to be the next days news ....

I pity you boo boo. Your all messed up man and you just dont have a leg to stand on.
"...I was all for it but only to get the man that was behind it, I'm not so sure he was [sic] the man now."

So what: We give him a pass? The reason he's not the man now is because of our success in decimating Al-Qaeda and our overall war on terror strategy. For heaven sakes man, think about what you're saying!
