PRO: I am both for the battle and against it. Calling it a war is giving it too much credit and the liberals too much gun powder to blow themselves up by. We are becoming so spoiled in our arrogance that we presume the entire world should have the same unquestionable "moral" values as us. It is this arrogance of morality that scares myself the most about this country. This morality is all too easily circumvented by those who stoop to terror, malice, and tried and true fear tactics. So to keep up, we now must take, steal, and, most importantly, out think and maneuver the competition which is getting more sophisticated and powerful each year. All this new competition for a shrinking commodity spells trouble and future desperation. All the arrogant asses who are no better than third world dictators who insist upon forcing their values they believe are in arguably good like hybrids, solar power, and on and on, the new age will definitely bring lower living standards if left to your radical mindset, and quite possibly will come to that regardless.
CON: The war was and is mishandled. We should have been far more ruthless. The war was too blatant a resource grab. We have made more enemies, but not enough to deter what has been accomplished. My biggest anger over the war has been the expense; the devaluation of the dollar, the inflation, and the running on the ragged edge of the financial envelope just because some sick ass terrorists take out a very few buildings of ours. Our response was too big for an attack so small. We would have done better to think it out and handled it in a more manipulative way.
