America's "West Bank"

One of Israel's biggest justification for staying in the West Bank (and previously Gaza) is to root out and destroy terrorism. Will Iraq become America's "West Bank".

Supposedly the reason we're told we have to stay is to prevent Iraq from becoming a "haven" for terrorists. Isn't the West Bank a haven for terrorists??? What about Lebanon??? Are they a threat to the US?? Aren't the terrorists in Iraq mainly all about getting the US OUT of Iraq just like Hammas and Hezbollah are all about getting Israel out of Palestine???

And if it's truly the case that we're out to stop terrorism, shouldn't we be bombing the Madrazas in Saudi Arabia???

We have terrorists in the US. Should federal troops invade and occupy Michigan to prevent the next Timothy McVeigh. And what about all those neo-nazi militant camps out there. Should we bomb those???

This is so absurd. There is NO WAY you can root out the terrorists across the world if you cannot root out the terrorists IN YOUR OWN NATION!!! Why is it so hard to annunciate this?

1. If you believe the Minute Men
It will be the Southwest. There are Hispanic Chicano nationalist groups like Aztlan and La Raza that want to set up their own country or seek unification with Mexico. Neither group is politically viable, but they often try to portray themselves as America's Palestinians.
