    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.

    what personal freedoms have you lost?

    which sacred land owned and governed by the militants do "we" occupy?

    i agree, "we" should let israel wage war on the arab states with no interference.

    same logic was used during german's expansion through europe in the 30's.

    Gabriella, welcome to the board. A couple of questions for you.

    1. Was 9/11 not a part of the War on Terrorism?
    2. If we pulled out of Saudi Arabia (the holy lands that Osama bin Laden referred to in his 1998 fatwa) do you really think that terrorists would stop targeting the US?
    3. What personal freedoms have you lost since 9/11? I have lost none.

    She has a point about personal freedoms.

    I lost my freedom to wear shoes through the metal detector at the airport.

    But I can live with that.

    Oh goodie. Another half-assed, slogan chanting, granola crunching, Bush hating refugee from the Democratic Underground has stopped by to enlighten us with her wisdom. Somehow I suspect this is just another drive-by posting.

    I wonder how many relatives of cops and firefighters killed in the WTC feel this way?

    This person is seriously a headcase.

    1. Was 9/11 not a part of the War on Terrorism?

    **9-11 was part of the response. Also, 9-11 was sanctioned by the U.S. Government. It remains Bush's finest hour.

    2. If we pulled out of Saudi Arabia (the holy lands that Osama bin Laden referred to in his 1998 fatwa) do you really think that terrorists would stop targeting the US?

    **Saudi Arabia is the world largest terrorist state. It houses and finances many terrorist groups. 15 of 19 Sept. 11 hijackers were Saudi citizens and were financed by the Saudi government.

    3. What personal freedoms have you lost since 9/11? I have lost none.

    **It's called the Patriot Act. You might want to read it sometime.

    You've lost all credibility now. In fact, after I'm done replying, I'm going to close this thread - you can post in one of the OTHER "GWB Allowed 11 September to Happen" threads.

    You didn't answer.


    Again - you didn't answer. Truth is, other than removing your shoes for airport security, your life has not been adversely affected by the patriot act. Stop being a whiney bitch, and enjoy the freedoms our laws protect.

    :)
