The best option would be to try and buy the guys freedom from the Pakistani government.
Let's try a little pretending, do you remember pretend? Barney the Dinosaur use to teach it to us. Anywho.
Let's say you're an uneducated farm boy in the mountains of Afghanistan, you don't have anything, I mean like you and your entire family live in a one room hut where you all sleep on the floor and **** outside.
While you're tending to your small herd an American airstrike destroys your hut and kills your entire family... mom, dad, your two sisters and your baby brother...
Some guys come to you and ask "Do you wanna get revenge?"
That doesn't excuse or make me happy that he went into a market and blew himself up, or killed American soldiers. It doesn't.
But it explains WHY he does what he does, and until you understand that, peel back the "They're all just evil" simpleton viewpoint, only then can you begin to turn back the tide.
The nuclear genie is out of the bottle and can't be put back in. Perhaps a reallocation of "defense" assets from CENTCOM to the homeland would better able to protect us from the threat of a nuclear strike.

"A witty saying proves nothing." Voltaire
Your feeble mind is incapable of grasping my point.
Obama, Bush, it doesn't matter. Just because I have an opposing viewpoint does not mean I'm all about Obama... but I suppose if you live in the political bizzaro world where you believe only two kind of people exist, conservatives and liberals, then I suppose I can understand where you're coming from
I should have added my point about how we do need to understand how people become terrorists to cut off the problem at the source, but also deal with these recruiters, the old men hiding behind the Quran, twisting its words to drive men to madness and destruction, they're the real threat.
