    Thats how I see it anyway.

    Sure its a big concern, but fighting terrorism is easy. Dont fall into their fear strategy, and capture the leaders as an example.

    Why are we focusing all our energy on fighting terrorists and anti-US factions in Iraq and Afghanistan?

    Our biggest focus should be on the economy, and no the free market won't fix it.

    Your perceptions are off. If you consider events like 9/11 not a threat and growing, high employment economies bad, then your head isn't on straight.

    "Terrorism is not a threat to our survival" - tell that to the Iraqi people, or the people who perished in England, Spain, New York, Oklahoma City, Bali nightclub, etc., etc., etc. What makes you so sure that you're not living where the terrorists will strike next?

    The phrase "fear strategy" is nothing but
    an empty concoction used by opponents
    of US anti-terror policies.

    And listen, international polls show there
    may be well over 100 million Muslims worldwide
    who are sympathetic to terrorism. If only
    one million actually take part in terrorist
    behavior, then we have a really big problem,
    and this problem is not reduced by the sure
    fact the terrorists are seeking nuclear, chemical
    and biological WMDs, and will use them as
    soon as they attain them.

    Some people might be stupid enough to sleep
    peacefully at night with this knowledge; I never will.

    We are certainly trying to capture terrorist
    leaders, and several have been caught, and
    more will be caught.




    Because, obviously, those are the locations
    of the the largest concentration of terrorists.




    The economy is secondary to political stability
    without which no form of economy can prosper.

    Well, sorry. No, I don't believe we are going to be overrun by millions of enemy terrorists.
    If you think that these terrorists are a threat to this country's SURVIVAL, your scared shitless and they win. nice job. It shouldnt be our main focus.

    what did i say about high employment economies? Nothing, so im guessing you think our economy is great because we have so many jobs. You dont hear the sucking sound? Oh wow.

    Jobs are not the issue really. Everyone has a job. Some of us have three just to put food on the table. Slaves have many jobs.
    The issue is having good jobs, the kind that get your kids through school, have a family, retirement.. those are the good jobs.

    How about a list of "good jobs" and "bad jobs" - there are countless people out there who will tell you that they had a crappy job but were able to send their kids to college, etc.

    I am curious to know you definition of good and bad jobs.

    Umm, since when did these terrorist strikes threaten our country's existance?
    They don't. Only our leaders can destroy this country.

    Heh, if this country dealt with terrorism the same way as the oklahoma city bombing. We would have binladen, his group, and his mentor. Now they dont even care about capture binladen.

    9/11 shouldnt have even happened anyway...how many warnings did we get dozens and dozens? Oh and our leaders say "nobody could have imagined"...rriiiight.

    Fear strategy is what they are using...thats why they call it TERRORISM. They want us to act a certain way after they attack, thats the point, or they wouldnt do it.
    When you say the fear strategy is an empty concoction. Thats just, blind.

    Wow, your greatest enemy. I wonder how many terrorists would be created if you kill 100 million terrorists. a Billion?

    You know how many would sympathize with terrorists if we were not in iraq/afghan/saudi arabia? alot.

    To the reich wing, seems occupying shithole cities in the desert is more important than supporting our troops.(their wellbeing)

    Most people with delusions dont sleep much. "they commin to get me!!"

    Yes, you're correct. But we are creating terrorists faster than we can kill them off.

    So we do exactly what the terrorists want, fight them on their ground.
    And we did what binladen promised his people and the masses.

    No, you're doing total reverse thinking. we can't fight wars without strong economy, if we do, we destroying ourselves.

    I dont want to go too far off topic here.
    A good job is something you can raise kids on, have a home, and retirement. Everything else, is rubbish.
    The american dream mostly.

    You made the statement - therefore, it's not off topic.

    Is McDonald's a good job? Trash collector for the city?

    Server at Chili's?

    Bad job is.... ?
