That's exactly why I find the current tactics of the US government and its allies rather counter-productive. Do you think there are now less terrorists (or potential terrorists) out there who want to kill americans? They are evoking holy wars being called against them almost daily now and I really don't see any reason why the Iraqi intervention mission did anything good in that direction but worsen the situation extremely.psoTFX wrote: Our greatest threats come from terrorists, either conventionally or God forbid, unconventionaly armed.
On a side note. I wish the palatines would finally try out the Gandhi method of war. They'd bring the Isrealis down to their knees in days.
Saddam is gone, good. No question in that. If that is everything that was meant to being accomplished, well done. But one has to face and consider the consequences. Something that the US government seems to have some problems with. Either that, or they don't really care.psoTFX wrote:The truth is a ruthless dictator who for 12 years flouted UN resolution after UN resolution was kicked out of power. We ended his torturing of civilians and put an end to any plans he may have had (and based on historical evidence there is ample reason to think he did have such plans) with regard his neighbours or the wider community. As far as I'm concerned, good ridden and well done to the U.S., British, Australian, Dutch, Polish and other troops that did that job and did it well.
