The War on Terror is a Failure
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 04:48 PM by Sandpiper
With the most recent bombings, it has become crystal clear now that the so-called War on Terror has failed to do anything that it has promised:

It has not made the world safer

It has not captured Osama bin Laden and brought him to justice

It has not destroyed or significantly weakened Al Qaida

It has not made the Middle East more democratic

It has not protected freedom


It HAS made the world: More violent, less safe, less free, and less stable.

So say it loud and say it often: The War on Terror is a failure. Bush and Blair's War on Terror is a failure.

2. But this will only....
serve to cement our chimp in chief's "resolve" (read; pigheadedness). WE know what the deal is, but the chimp and his minions will read this as wrong as they've read everything else. Expect to see a greater number of our resources diverted from our country into the pocketbooks of HELLiburton etc.

3. SO sad, so true-
Unfortunately this will only ratchet the hate mongers
resolve up another notch.
I tremble at the future as
long as the neocons are in power.

4. If those were the goals, then it is a failure...
If it is a bullshit excuse to invade oil-rich countries, restrict civil liberties, and generally keep the population under your thumb, then I'd say it's working out pretty damn well.

5. A War on a strategy is a false premise.
There will always be acts like this perpetrated by people of various political and/or relgious fervor.

Who declared war on Amerika?

Seems to me that it was al Quada, not Iraq or Afghanistan.

Why does the Bush Regime lie about who Amerika is at war with?
