    Nixon knew about, "The Other Side." It was everywhere! It Was Communist! And It Included Red China(?)!

    George Bush II knew about "The Other Side." They were "Terrorists," and "Enemy Combatants," and for them it was "Mission Accomplished(?)!" It was simply not always clear which side the Bush Administration believed had accomplished, what mission.

    But even Dick Cheney knew--from even the most undisclosed of locations--that a mission had . . . .happened(?)!

    The Obama Administration is now widely public with the concept that "Terrorists" are not "Enemy Combatants." Left unsaid is how the combantants, not of "The Other Side," are to be regarded.

    Michele Obama was even on ABC Good Morning America, apparently only now discovering that mainly entire military family's are getting screwed! Mostly, even Congress knew this: Even before the Obama's $4.0 mil. actually did clear the system, at Federal Reserve!

    "Dead, Dismembered, Disemboweled, DeCapitated, and even, "Blown To Bits:" Is otherwise useful language that can be used to describe combatants, "Not of the Other Side." The coffins and the funerals can now even be filmed.

    Somewhere, in all of this: There may even be a (temporary) anti-war message! The Obama Administration has no apparent comment on, "The Mission!"

    "Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!"

    An incompetant response to terrorism, by whatever name, will cost our nation dearly. We have seen that in the last eight years. We will see how President Obama handles this problem.

    An excellent point, Clinton's 'police' attitude let terrorism grow domesitcally into the USA, Bush's 'war' attitude involved US armed forces having to fight in Muslim lands with hostile populations.

    The "terrorists' vanished on 9/11, atomized in the explosions and the crashes. Mainly, White House--and Vice President--automatically knew there was an "other side."

    The basis reality is that no "other side" existed. The Taliban offered to bring in Osama bin laden for Moslem Trial. Instead of being regarded an allied and friendly government, they became "The Other Side." Then Iraq became "The Other Side." All of the Middle East became the "Other Side."

    The typical fanatic militant group usually has no more than a few dozen hard core, and a few hundred adherents.

    The actualy scope of the problem has not changed. The terrorists died on 9/11. Even Fox News has noticed that no further attacks have really occurred.

    Now, that actually arises because Fox News and GOP do not consider the Mexican Drug Cartels to be terrorists. The only area they seem to terrorize, in the United States, Is Phoenix.

    Everyone knows that John McCain is from nearby to there(?). There are therefore no terrorist attacks on-going in America, at this time!

    Because they are sitting back watching it be destroyed from the inside! There work is being done for them. Bringing down the west doesn't mean vaporizing it.

    However, the terrorist had the right amount of fear for president Bush because they realized that he meant business. The new president offers time tables, wants to close gitmo, wants to reason with them, and now changes who and what they are.

    CHANGE we can HOPE for.

    This is the kind of thinking that will allow something even more sinister than 9/11 to take place. "There are no Muslim terrorists. It was just those 19 that died on 9/11. We don't need to worry about terrorism anymore. Let's just be good friends with the Muslim world. They really are just like us. They just want to live in peace."

    Kaboom!
