Is there really a "global war on terror"?
Or is this simply a war on the common man by those with money? Seriously, who supports the "terrorists"--wealthy Arabs. Who supports this war here--corporate CEOs and the landed gentry as embodied in the Bush clan.

1. The Greatest Terror Threat...
...comes from Washington DC and Langley Virginia.

The rest are just amateurs with bad PR departments.

2. No! There never has been.
And if there were, it wouldn't be fought in Iraq. The "global war" being waged by BushCo is against us. It is a war of fear perpetrated with lies in order to steal our freedom and our money. And whether we know it or like it (or not), it is a fight to the death.

3. I think so...
I just am not sure we as a nation are part of the solution anymore.

5. The war on terror is a lot like the war on drugs...
Both are simultaneously fear-mongering, farcical and a flop.
