Wish someone could explain how this has made America "safer"
The slaughter of civilians and "insurgents" in Iraq.

The deaths of over 30 of our soldiers since the "Fallujah operation" began.

And the number of injuries more than double the last few days.

3. BushCo doesn't need to attack us any more.
They've got license to take over the world and attack OTHER countries. So perversely, most Americans - except our poor dear soldiers - are safe from attacks from the BFEE.

5. Logic
I believe that their logic is that when we send targets to Iraq, those who hate us will not look for targets in North America. They may be right. Al Qaeda likes to pick the "low hanging fruit" but how many targets can we afford to send over there before it gets out of control. We have already lost almost 1200 targets and they are still looking at North America. It is going to take a lot of targets.

6. Our inept CIC has only breeded more terrorists with his policy.
There is no way terrorism will be defeated by bringing "de-mock-racy" to Iraq.

And I don't think our deceptor-in-chief wants Bin Laden captured. As long as he's around, he can be used as a tool to keep half this country scared to death. This administration wants non-stop wars to feed their money-worshipping corporations who benefit from war.

8. By concentrating terrorist in a small area
Lots of people died, but only 1/3 as many as on 9/11.

It seems mankind has not figured out how to stop killing each other, the slaughters of the last century are being carried into this one.

9. It's not that mankind doesn't no how to stop, it's that there's no profit.
..or as Megadeth put it, "Peace sells, but who's buying".

Can't have a bunch of defense contractors going broke now, can we?

11. 9/11 scared me,
This idea that since I want terrorist and anything or anyone who assist them to die as well, and that makes me "one of them" killed our party just a week and a half ago.

Wanting our enemies dead has somehow become a political position, and whe nthat happened, we started losing. We can not push our agenda if we allow the right to define us on this.
