    Re: How Do We End The War on Terror?

    If you study history you understand extreme fundamentalists have always existed and have always used terror acts to make up for their relatively small numbers. Anyone that says WE or other countries 'cause' terrorists is simply a fool. You cannot 'win' the war on terror in a traditional war sense. At the same time...you cannot stop fighting them. So...the answer is that the war on terror must NEVER end. They arent looking for appeasement. They arent really just good guys with a strong sense of pride in country. They are extremists...fanatics...and they wont stop until they get what they want. So fight them always, ignore them and suffer the consequences, or roll over and die.

    I think our country and Presidents have all done a decent job fighting terrorism. Yes...even Obama. I think that has to continue. We have to balance following the constitution and protecting the rights of US citizens with investigating potential terror planning by non-US citizens that happen to be here in the US. We have to have aggressive intel and policing. And when groups rise up like ISIS has we need to squash their head like little ****ing bugs. It would be far more healthy if the world took a stand against scum like ISIS instead of sitting back waiting for us to do it. But if they wont, we still have to.

    I'm not scared of Islamic extremists as long as our government promotes sound policy. There's the rub. You, your not concerned with sound policy, or knowing how and why the Islamic State is out of the bottle. You're just scared and want another war in the ME. I assure you, that just as AQ lives, the Islamic State will live.

    The polling results on this thread are encouraging anyway.

    You say that seriously? It has been a common theme among America-hating leftists for quite a few years that it's this country's own actions that have caused Muslim jihadists to treat it as an enemy. A couple examples, out of many that could be turned up by anyone who wanted to look into it.

    Maybe you have forgotten how the fake Indian professor at Colorado, Ward Churchill, opined right after 9/11 that the victims in the World Trade Center got what was coming to them. Apparently because these murdered people had facilitated the evil machinery of capitalism, in his view, he famously slandered them as "little Eichmanns."

    B. Hussein Obama's preacher of twenty years, Jeremiah "God damn America" Wright, took a similar view. "America, your chickens have come home to roost," as he put it.

    War on Terror = Islam's War on the World.

    To win, one must find the enemy (all radical Islamics) and drestroy them.

    To contain the problem, ban all Islamics from the West.

    I believe the opposite. We will lose the war that we do not fight.

    Neither of those examples demonstrate that they believed that the US or US policies "caused" terrorists!! Get this, terrorists exist, and US policy can contain them, or US policy can embolden them!

    Lol! You cannot lose a war that you did not fight. You can fight and win a war, you can fight and lose a war, but you can neither win or loose a war you do not fight. We lost the war against Al Qaeda, they live, and they and their various offshoots and affiliates are menacing far larger portions of territory then they were before the Iraq war. And they seem to be patching things up with the Islamic State now.

    It is lose. Not loose.

    Of course we can lose a war we do not fight. One of our problems is that we fail to recognize the nature of the wars we find ourselves in. We do a poor job of determining what it takes to win. We have long failed to train strategists who can creatively apply national power including diplomacy, propaganda and military force to win.

    We lost the war against Al Qaeda, they live, and they and their various offshoots and affiliates are menacing far larger portions of territory then they were before the Iraq war. And they seem to be patching things up with the Islamic State now.
    The war is not over. It is true that Der Fuhrer, the Islamofascist supporter on the golf course, in between fund raisers, gave away many of our early victories. Such is the nature of tyrants. We will rid ourselves of him and his henchmen, then we can move forward to defeat Islamism.

    But first our tyrant must go. As long as we have an Islamofascist supporter, an anti-American president, we cannot win as we will choose not to fully engage.
