What really is war on terror

Just a stupid idea to launch a useless global war in response to 9/11 while the actual culprits sit in peace. How come Saudis escape the American wrath after 9/11. I don't care what the government or press says but hundreds of people like me will personally testify that extremism was once the office doctrine of Saudi education system enforced by power and reward mechanism. The education system sucked at producing any useful skill labor but instead centered on producing ideologically ripe militants for greater jihad. There were and are apparent flaws in financial and immigration systems which were openly exploited yet the government was never set alert.

Fuel economy!! whats that??

I was under the impression that many were (and are) encouraged and supported in undertaking higher education in America and Europe.

Qualified, multilingual Saudi engineers, doctors, scientists, technocrats and business men would be an asset to the nation.

Any school whose curriculum focuses more on extreme religion than acquiring knowlege
will naturally graduate more radical religious militants.

As usual, this Administration has a GRAMMAR issue. It should be AGAINST not ON and should be fought toward the Terrorists who commit the acts, not the resulting acts of Terror.

So, to help our C student President I recommend the highly apropos TWAT : The War Against Terrorists.

Unless you really make us to.
