AOL Poll: 39% say terrorists are winning the war on terror!
I don't know who is voting. I wonder if this is close to the real feeling in this country. Here are the numbers.

    Are terrorists winning the war on terror? Story
    Yes, recruiting fast 39%
    No, not possible 36%
    We are probably tied. 13%
    I'm not sure. 12%
    Total Votes: 58,351


This is pretty amazing to see. You have to be an AOL member to see it.

2. they probably are

since the entire thing is a total farce.

There can be no war on terror.

It will never be a "war" that will function under the deinifiton of a war. It is like the advertising campaign that would advertise a "war on tooth decay" or a "war on diabetes"

These are not wars as we know wars to be. There is no difinitive enemy that will surrender to us when we "win"

Therefore we can never "win"

And those who do not or are not capable of thinking this through, will be the ones who will vote for Bush because they are so frightened that they believe what he says and think he will protect them from a terrorist attack

That he is a stupid man, makes not a whit of difference to these frightened people

They will latch on to anything that makes them feel as if they are being protected even though there is no evidence of that at all. Even though it is logically impossible.

3. What the hell is this, a sporting event everybody can enjoy?!
All AO-Hell is doing is shovelling propaganda. It only reflects the amount of voters who are utterly stupid.
