We squandered that good will by invading and killing many more innocent civilians than we lost in two countries that never attacked the US, rather than enlisting the support of the world to condemn and seek out terrorists around the world. As the conservative Rand Corp determined in their report commissioned by the Pentagon, that resulted only in creating more terrorists and more hatred of America.

    Bin Laden said we would be defeated not on the battlefield but financially by trying to fight futile wars, and we seem determined to prove him correct, IMO.

    I admire you for defending innocent civilians everywhere.
    What? Really?

    World opinion and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee at McDonalds.

    What would all those other nations have us do, sit back and do nothing? Now, I was against invading Iraq, but I definitely supported the invasion of Afghanistan. There is nothing wrong in rooting out the problem, and if that takes invasion, so be it.

    We are not a nation of appeasement, unlike European nations. When Madrid got hit, Spain pulled out of the coalition. When London hit, they just lay there and took it like a fat girl at a frat party. Hell, the millions of Pakistanis living in London and other areas of England are practically carving out law.

    If America had given the diplomatic equivalent of "We're sorry, we'll leave you alone, please don't hurt us again...please?" to radical Islam, our own morale would have been crushed. I will tell you now - I give 100x more of a damn what America thinks about America than what every other nation on Earth combined thinks of America. If you don't like it, the collective world population can line up and kiss my ass. Princes don't appeal to paupers.

    The United States - technically - is the only group ever to conduct a terrorist attack using nuclear weapons.

    But I think it was the right decision at the time, and resulted in less human deaths overall if we were to conduct a Japanese invasion.

    Blitzkreigs beg to differ.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    They can beg all they want. A person blowing themselves up in a market place, killing 4 injuring 10 others...terrorism. Dropping a bomb from a plane or launching a missile from a proper military platform killing 100's if not more....not terrorism.

    I don't agree with your reasoning. So if Al-Qaeda were to gain access to fighter jets, and attack a civilian US city out of the blue one day with missiles, this would not be considered a terrorist attack?

    Or are you just being sarcastic and I'm not getting the joke?

    It was mostly sarcasm and cynicism. Essentially if one side kills civilians they call it terrorism; but if the other side does it it's retaliation or military operation or anything other than terrorism.

    Look at the bright side - Nagasaki and Hiroshima were warned.

    Abdullah didn't hand out pamphlets saying that he was going to suicide-bomb the Pizza Hut in 10 minutes, so you should get out if you want to live. The Enola Gay was a dirty little litterbug that day.

    My funny seems to have been mistaken for an attack.... :O

    But it's not like half the country went running for their guns literally after 9/11 and believes the president is a muslim. But we can leave it at that.
