    Did bombing, and running when confronted in places like Somalia in the past deter radical terrorists like OBL? No, it emboldened him...

    So continue doing all the things which encourage terrorism to beat terrorism? Sounds reasonable.

    So continue to advocate doing nothing, and I am sure that'll work too...

    Humanitarian efforts can be made to fight the propaganda terrorists use for recruitment, but because of the long and violent history we've had in the region, it's long term project. In the end though you'll produce better results building hospitals rather than bombing them.

    Ofcourse, keep the checkbook open, and hope and pray that they don't take that and still attack eh....These are gold!

    Yeah we are, yet we're spending trillions on war. Do you understand the meaning of your own statement? War ain't free.

    Neither is trying to buy off your enemies.

    Yes, but building roads and hospitals is cheaper and would pay off more in the long term. But if you want to keep bombing us into the poor house, I suppose you have some followers into that.

    Does the US have the means to do this for everyone? I don't think we do, so the consequence to this tact is that you pay off enemies to stop harassing you, while creating new ones that don't receive your help, while teaching them that in order to get the pay out is to start harassing you....Our current enemies have a term for that, it is called paying a dhimmi tax.
