    There is little question that there are terrorist groups that will, if given the slightest opportunity, attack a US city with a WMD.

    The numer of people that -will- die in an a WMD attack is enormous, and the effect on the nation, on numerous levels, is incalcuable; this damage far outstrips any from any of the other issues mentioned.

    You can't really believe that the war on terrorism is effective. Simple math and common sense proves that a lie. try this on for size. There are easily 12 million illegals in America. Some say 20 million but lets low ball it. Roughly 85% of those come from Central/South America. Meaning 15% come from other areas. Or 1.5 million give or take. A group of terrorists working independent from any other group or nation could easily sneek in and raise havoc. Its not hard to get 20 terrorists out of the 1.5 million illegals snuck into America.Statically the odds are greater that they are already here then not. Iraq/afgan wars stop nothing. The weak..we haven't had a single terrorist attack on American soil since 9-11 is a fluke at best. It took 8 yrs between the 93 WTC and 9-11. People who support the 2 wars are living under a false sense of security. Live in fear if you want but leave the rest of our nation out of it.

    Wrongo, they forced nothing on us. Nor did Iraq. If we didn't interfer throughout the world there would have been no 9-11.

    A simple statement. Also an ignorant one. Unfortunately the world is a bit more complex than this. Had we answed Al-Queda's call after every dead military man abroad througout the 90s there would have been no 9/11. Had we just allowed Kuwait to fall to the Hussein and risk the world's oil resource supply stability there would have been no Al-Queda. Had we allowed the Soviets to win over the Middle East, thereby owning the very resource that builds powerful armies, there would have been no...what? Qutb (Sunni Arab) named us an enemy of God for our culture long before we "interefered" even with Iran. Of course, our meddling in Iran had nothing to do with the greater Sunni Arab population of Islam so that bit of international diplomacy had nothing to do with nothing.

    And when we consider how destroyed and wrecked the Middle East is because of centuries of European colonialism and bad border engineering followed up by the brutal oppression and aggression of Russians and Soviets upon Muslims throughout the Cold War.....the idea that 9/11 occurred because of our "interfering" demands that the overwhelming offenses of everybody else didn't happen.

    We are the chosen enemy. Even during the Cold War, when the Soviets were oppressing and brutalizing hundreds of millions of Muslims in the Caucusus and invading Afghanistan, we were "God's enemy." Even as we assisted Muslims against the Soviets in Afghanistan and later saved Muslims in Kuwairt and Bonsia, we are "God's enemy." Those who cater to their excuses for dead Americans is as ignorant as the uneducated suicide bomber who buys into the same simpleton crap.

    Culture is fate. And their culture is one of failure. Instead of blaming that which prescribes their culture (Islam, God, whatever) they choose a foriegn devil to take responsibility. Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan were never colonized. The Tali-Ban was a Muslim creation. The overwhelming Muslim death over the last 50 years has been at the hands of other Muslims. Even Al-Queda has targetted Muslims far more than any American troop. Like I stated...culture is fate. Make them take responsibility for their own sewage for a change.

    How soon you people want to forget.

    Three Thousand

    DEAD

    Americans

    in ONE morning.

    It should never be allowed to happen again, and it should not go unpunished.

    Why you people side so readily with the enemies of my children is a mystery I don't want the answer to.

    And why would you label it "living in fear?" Why can't it be just a simple wish to punish the enemy? Perhaps they feel perfectly secure because these two wars are not the end all be all of this effort to create security. Troops are deployed all over. The CIA is active. International agreements have created a new sense of "Big Brother." Civilian agencies in private industry throughout the world help to create security for travel. I don't feel fear when I deploy. Are you telling me that the average American who supports the war(s) feels "fear" as he flips channels on his DirectTV?

    Or is "fear" just bumper sticker wisdom in place of actual thought into the matters?

    IMHO his top priority should be to RESIGN the Presidency.
