...Well guys the war on terrorism isnt looking good. Im nervouse right now because if we lose that can be a really bad thing. What do you guys think about the W.O.T.
I think all it did is make thing harder for people in Iraq and attracted alot of attention for other countries to get involved, and you know what happend when more then 2 countries get involved in the same conflict ... WW3 :\
I think this is in the wrong forums....
Well I dunno about it. I havn't watched the news in months so..
I didn't make it!
Not looking good? Only if you are blind and follow bullshit propaganda. We are kicking the terrorist ass. Sure we have casualties on our side, but that is a given. We are winning.
I myself am disappointed that more countries in the world are not standing up against terrorism. But then again some people just don't give a shit about Liberty, Peace, and god-given Human rights.
or perhaps they believe that the best way to stop terrorism is not to go in all guns blazing and try and kill all those evil terrorists.

if it wasn't for the actions of a certain country, there would be no need for 'standing up against terrorism'. and about the 'god-given rights', that is open to debate...
Our war on terrorism seems to be going well...from what info we get..but it's also very one-sided..and much of it is propaganda. I hope it's going well, but I think it's not..:uhm: Read this book about the War on Terrorism. It is 'anonymous', but it was written by a high-up CIA agent..who is a middle eastern specialist. here's some info about it.
brasseysincThough U.S. leaders try to convince the world of their success in fighting al Qaeda, one anonymous member of the U.S. intelligence community would like to inform the public that we are, in fact, losing the war on terror. Further, until U.S. leaders recognize the errant path they have irresponsibly chosen, he says, our enemies will only grow stronger. According to the author, the greatest danger for Americans confronting the Islamist threat is to believe—at the urging of U.S. leaders—that Muslims attack us for what we are and what we think rather than for what we do. Blustering political rhetoric “informs” the public that the Islamists are offended by the Western world’s democratic freedoms, civil liberties, inter-mingling of genders, and separation of church and state. However, although aspects of the modern world may offend conservative Muslims, no Islamist leader has fomented jihad to destroy participatory democracy, for example, the national association of credit unions, or coed universities. Instead, a growing segment of the Islamic world strenuously disapproves of specific U.S. policies and their attendant military, political, and economic implications. Capitalizing on growing anti-U.S. animosity, Osama bin Laden’s genius lies not simply in calling for jihad, but in articulating a consistent and convincing case that Islam is under attack by America. Al Qaeda’s public statements condemn America’s protection of corrupt Muslim regimes, unqualified support for Israel, the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, and a further litany of real-world grievances. Bin Laden’s supporters thus identify their problem and believe their solution lies in war. Anonymous contends they will go to any length, not to destroy our secular, democratic way of life, but to deter what they view as specific attacks on their lands, their communities, and their religion. Unless U.S. leaders recognize this fact and adjust their policies abroad accordingly, even moderate Muslims will join the bin Laden camp. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- About The Author: Anonymous is a senior U.S. civil servant with nearly two decades of experience in the U.S. intelligence community’s work on Afghanistan and South Asia.
