    Not everything, just bomb the places where the enemy is located.

    We're not doing that?

    I am frankly insulted that you are calling our military a bunch of softies in the war on terror. Unless you believe that by some means of quantum mechanics liberalism is affecting the fight itself.

    Well its a the pakistani government, and those that vote for it that we risk alienating here, that was the point i made in the post you responded to. Have a look at the wikipedia article I linked to earyler on the pakistani government responce to these attacks.

    Also you said

    "If enough civilians get killed, sooner, or later, they'll stop letting the terrorists hide among them." So your in favor of wiping out the civillian population rather then helping them route out an enemy that most of them hate anyway?

    Of course we're not doing that. Haven't you been paying attention? Our troops have to receive command authority to fire on the enemy when there's a potential for civilian casualties.

    Be insulted all you won't, except I wasn't talking about our armed forces. I was talking about the candy asses that we have running th show in D.C.

    If our troops were unleased to do what had to be done, the war in Afghanistan and Iraq would be history by now.

    That's the problem you Liberals have. You can't seperate, "wiping out the civilian population", from a few civilian casualties incurred while attacking the enemy. You folks always assume the worst extreme.

    Well this is the logical conclusion of your argument. You would have to kill a large number of civillians for the terroists to have nowhere to hide and by doing so you would be creating more terroists and a greater number of civillians willing to hide them. Thus necessitating more civillian deaths and so on....

    And you still havent explained why you prefer this level of barbarity to simply cooperating with the pakistanis?

    How many new enemies did we create during WW2? None, huh?

    We need to stop worrying about the silly notion of creating enemies and spend more time killing the enemies we already have.

    Oooh!!!! Trick question!!!

    The end of WW2 and the subsequent emergence of the United States as the leader of the free world created 'enemies' out of most of Imperial Europe, in that we then had all the power that they used to have.
