I don't think there is really a "war on terror." I believe this to be a total fabrication. The alleged "war on terror" is really an excuse to deceive and frighten the American people into sacrificing their personal freedoms. If anyone here has read much about the Islamic militants, they will find that they have one basic "demand." That is for Westerners not to occupy land that is deemed "sacred" by Islamic nations. Despite this, the various American governments and corporations continue to do so. Also, the United States continues to take sides in internal conflicts. The conflict between the terrorist states of Israel and Palestinian nations has gone on since the late 1940s, yet we continue to back Israel due to their heavy financial lobbying. If the United States completely withdraws from Iraq and other Middle Eastern nations, we would have little to fear from terrorists.
