    QFT.

    And I motion to demand facts supporting these "we killed __" claims . . . there's just no way of us knowing, all numbers of enemy combatants killed in any war are estimates and based on their numerous and unverifiable reports.

    Oftne our enemies aren't like us with a system which makes it a goal to maintain an accurate record.

    If they're trying to kill you, they are the bad guy.

    That's why body counts are a crucial barometer of success on the battlefield, especially on this battlefield where success is gauged by how much combat power you rob from the enemy.

    Funny how you're not going to insist on docs. Guess you're only interested in source documentation when it's something you disagree with. Looks like you're willing believe whatever you want to believe.

    BTW, I've never complained when asked for a source.

    How the hell would we know how many Terrorists or Insurgents there are? You're both daft. There is no terrorist census and they operate largely under the radar. We only know the ones that come out in public.

    My claim was relative to yours. There are more terrorist attacts worldwide than there were after 8 years of our war on terror.

    Oftne our enemies aren't like us with a system which makes it a goal to maintain an accurate record.
    From the Rand Report commissioned by the Pentagon last year ~

    "Consequently, as the Rand study reports, the U.S. "war on terrorism" has been a failure in combating al Qaida, and indeed, that "[a]l Qaida's resurgence should trigger a fundamental rethinking of U.S. counterterrorism strategy."

    "As the Rand Corporation predicts in such circumstances, this has only led to an increase in popular support for those resisting the U.S. military onslaught. In short, the war is counterproductive."

    "In the end, Rand concludes that the U.S. should rely much more on local military forces to police their own countries, and that this "means a light U.S. military footprint or none at all."
    Dan Kovalik: Rand Corp -- War On Terrorism Is A Failure

    "But military force has not undermined al Qa'ida. As of 2008, al Qa'ida has remained a strong and competent organization. Its goal is intact: to establish a pan-Islamic caliphate in the Middle East by uniting Muslims to fight infidels and overthrow West-friendly regimes. It continues to employ terrorism and has been involved in more terrorist attacks around the world in the years since September 11, 2001, than in prior years, though engaging in no successful attacks of a comparable magnitude to the attacks on New York and Washington."
