    Has terrorism flourished under Obama? In any case, kindly explain why.
    It's flourished for as long as we've been making these interventions into foreign lands. It won't get better if we keep doing the same thing we've been doing for decade after decade.

    Hi MMC.....


    If you're counting bodies 9/11 happened under Bush's watch.

    The two brothers in Paris were inspired to join Al Qaeda because of the Iraq invasion and Abu Graib.

    I see my point went way over your head. Try reading a bit further in the thread and note where I make my point more clear. Counter those if you can. Bet you cannot...

    Re: Has terrorism flourished under Obama?

    I voted yes, but not for the reasons most. I do not believe it is because Obama is too weak, or because we are no longer technically occupying the Middle East. I voted yes because of our policy towards terrorism. It also expanded under Bush, Clinton and the Elder Bush due to this policy. We cannot go around and bomb everybody that hates us, it is not realistic. There will always be people that hate America. Unfortunately, the majority of people who hate America right now are not people who hate it "just because". They hate America because we cause them to hate us. Every time we play wack a mole with terrorism and use drones to take people out, there is collateral damage, innocent civilians. When we kill them, we make more enemies then we kill. It perpetuates violence. Obama has done too much working to go after terrorists. So that is why I voted yes. We have been entrenched in this war for so long, and every year the attacks get worse, the ideologies get more extreme, we spend more money, and lose more sons and daughters. Maybe we need a new policy, one that fosters peace. How about listen to the people who want to kill us and consider their grievances instead of bombing the sugar out of them. You cannot combat violence with more violence, it will only perpetuate itself.

    Nice deflection. Your post quotes the Republican house as being responsible for the rise in terrorism when they were elected in. You took the blame away from the Commander in Chief of the military, and blamed people who have nothing to do with his militaristic decision making.

    Did you serve in Iraq or Afg? I'll tell you what, nothing made me more happy when Obama changed the rules of engagement to where we couldn't shoot the enemy until they shot at us first. That 'wait to get shot' rule REALLY saved lives. (Sarcasm, over 70% of the deaths in Afghanistan happened under Obama since 2001 because of that rule change).
