    "The root problem is terrorists trying to stop democracies." - bush -- 7/27/06 - I just heard him say this on tv.

    Is this really the root problem? Wasn't Hamas democratically elected? Isn't the new democratic Iraq disintegrating due to cultural hatred?

    I think more accurately," OUR problem is freaky violent ethnic tribalism."

    Let's just keep away from it, contain it, and give up on the dreams of a completely tolerant, completely racially integrated world. It's a recent flavor of brainwash anyway that espoused this theory, and it was only intended as temporary measure to convince white people to hate themselves. You never see anyone complain much about africa being too black, or the mideast being too muslim. Why is it that only nations of white people must be "diversified"?

    The real problem is the Quran and everyone that blindly follows the Words of The Pedophile.

    Bush is too much a liberal coward to admit it publically.

    I should also add that Bush is that way because its too politically incorrect to speak the truth, because liberals will throw a hissy fit.

    So the real root of our problems is Liberalism, plain and simple.

    Isn't that little simplistic jeff? Isn't that just a tactic? That just means any use of force used by anyone but the "official government". We were terrorists once, fighting the british, dumping their tea in the ocean.

    And what is the cure for terrorism besides overwhelming "official" force and denial of rights and instrusion into the lives of every citizen?

    Did we target innocent civilians, especially women and children? Freedom fighters and terrorists are not the same.

    We would have if desperate enough. Aren't these terrorist trying to free their land from occupation and control by an unwanted party? Blowing up infrastructure items is also a terror tactic, and that's what the israelis are doing.

    Isn't the newcomer to the region always considered the invader?

    Actually, American forces during the Revolution did "borrow" food and supplies from villagers, often at gunpoint.

    However, the American forces soon revised this policy. They realized that they had to do more than just win battles; they had to win the hearts and minds of the native populace.

    The American revolutionaries dumping tea into Boston Harbor is the moral equivalent of flying planes into building, killing thousands?!? Your journey to the Dark Side is now complete. Did you copy and paste that from DU?

    Overwhelming official force, destroying those who terrorize innocents for political purposes, will do nicely.

    There was guerilla warfare too, jeff, you know that, as a big fancy Academy Man.

    So nuke them out of existence, or let them turn our boys into hamburger one man at a time with IED's?
