If you don't support our men & women in the Army & what they're doing then what in the hell are you doing on an Army support site?

Terrorist revel in exactly those kinds of statements & only give them encouragement.

Clearly you are failing to grasp my critism of a "War on Terror". I'm saying its a flawed concept and with no clearly defined goals.

I do however find your use of the word "Moron" interesting.

Clearly our folks in uniform are very important and thats why I was pointing out this clear non sensical deficiency in statergy. Al queda are the enemy, They're an organisation with clear objectives to destroy the West. So why haven't we arrested Bin Laden yet? Are we seriously trying to find him?

Al Queda uses terrorism. Besides, Al Queda is a name/word... We use words in many forms, actions, descriptions, etc... and much in life is relative and has many variables involved.

Yes it is but its also the name of an organisation that uses terrorism. Terrorism is a relative word depending on whose side you're on. Its not clearly defined. Clearly this why the Russians and Chinese have taken full advantage of the American use of this word and used it to justify their position in Chechnya and Xinjiang respectively.

A large percentage is supporting the US. We don't label them Terrorists.

The Israelis have responded militarily, targeting the point of origin of terror attacks. Is it the best option, I'm not sure, I haven't gotten a chance to study the conflict on the ground as I hope to in two years.

They are everywhere. That's the thing with terrorism, it takes on all creeds alike.

You haven't touched on Darfur I see. Do you really want me to post pictures?
Darfur, is a place where we should be.

and a large percentage certainly wasn't supporting the US up until recently, Because quite simply they weren't given a voice and were labeled to be everything that was wrong with Iraq, Namely the Sunni's!
