    Uhhhhm... probably the only way is to conquer all terrorist supporting lands and turn them into U.S. Commonwealths controlled by U.S. law.

    I mean... in the long run it's probably better for all the woman and children that live there.

    .... but that's an obvious radical solution that would make many upset.... but is it the only real way?

    As for me, I dont want to see another American solider or civilian killed in a pointless war with no end. The West needs to stop minding the business of other countries. No more overseas military bases or occupation- if these Islamists want to live according to their religion then I say let them do it. These very governments like Saudi Arabia, who we are fighting with to maintain their status quo over there are the very people who bankroll these terrorists. The US has got the largest shale oil deposits in the world- more than the entire middle east combined, why not spend billions in developing these fields and get oil form then instead of letting the Arabs do it and paying them for it?
    The title of War on Terrorism is a misnomer, it is nothing more than a modern day crusade. I do not see a foreseeable end to this religious War.

    Despite such claims, in many times and places, Muslims have been more tolerant of other religions than Christians have been in many times and places.

    Is there an end to the War on Terror? It's whack a mole, you defeat one organization and all the wannabe jihadist flood to a new one and each new one is called "worse" than the last.

    Our War on Terror was a success is killing OBL but has been a failure by every other measure.

    Of course I acknowledge Obama's hand in the Middle East woes. He's done at least as much damage as George Bush. And I agree with you that Bush did as much damage as he could. And attacking Iraq, which had no connection to OBL or Al Qaeda, was impotent to deliver a mushroom cloud over a US city, and removing Saddam Hussein who was quite effective in containment of terrorist groups within his borders is the catalyst to the trouble we have today. Then, installing a puppet government that didn't provide equal Shia/Sunni access/leadership and failing in six years time to properly train a military that could defend their borders is just a huge smear on his legacy.

    Yeah, sure. It has nothing to do with a dictator that committed genocide twice, invaded neighbors twice, institutionalized rape, intentionally starved hundreds of thousands, violated 17 unscrs and had a fake WMD program.

    Yeah, those were not problems and they didn't contribute to the mess today.
