The only way to win the war on terror is to start playing offense. For some time the US has been a reactionary . We have not entered a conflict to decisively win since WW II. And it may be too late to take real action, there was a time when we had most of the world behind us to attack, but political correctness got in the way. Even today we are fearful of upsetting the Muslims. The big question here is why.

If we are afraid to to act, as you say, it is because we as a nation, and as people of the world, continue to remain in the thrall of relgion, still, in the 21st century. We are not fighting a war on terror - we are fighting a war on religion and it will never end so long as we act as superstitious sheep instead of as thinking, rational people. Make no mistake, we are in the mess(es) we are in, not because of some differences in politics, but because of the pervasive and crippling influence of religion in out lives today.

Well, I must say that as a nation our problems with the middle east and muslims did not start until sometime after WW II. I believe that portion of the world has issue with our nation and citizens due our government's constant interference with their way of life, national, and economic affairs. This meddling has bred hatred where none existed prior. The USA did NOT exist during the Crusades and there are plenty of other nations with predominately Christian populations for the muslims to hate for religious reason and yet the USA seems to be a huge target. OUR leaders and NATIONAL POLICIES have created this mess. Yet many long time senators and congressmen remain in office even though they hold great responsibility for contribution to the hatred of our nation due to their decisions. If this issue were completely religious then there would be attacks on Brazil, Mexico, Australia, etc....

To end the terror we as a nation must change our foreign policies and have tolerance for other cultures outside of our borders as well as within. Why is OUR way of life the right way and their way of life wrong. All a matter of perspective.

Sure, it would be nice t think that the savages of the world would stop their evil ways. You have about as much chance of eliminating terror as you do ending all crime. It's a nice pipe dream, but you need to sell it to the other guy.

With the dissemination of opinion and information virtually instantaneous with today's technology, the freedom which our nation transmits to other parts of the world make many undeveloped cultures extremely nervous. Their entire way of life, limited as we perceive it, is strongly disrupted and threatens those within those cultures who wish to retain power. We will, and should not, place parameters on our own freedoms due to politically correct and pusillanimous political posturing. If necessary, we must be extremely pro-active in protecting our freedoms and way of life. HISTORY LESSON - remember what we finally had to do to rid ourselves of the Barbary Pirates 200 years ago!

It will likely not ever end but if we do not fight them they win. If we sit back and allow them to grow, practice and gain strength they will be tougher to stop. It is like a illness in your body, if left untreated even a simple nonthreatening disease will be deadly. You have to maintain a health or succumb to their effects. Fight it to win it is the only true answer.

agree with all comments...the fight against terrorism will be an on-going battle, a fight that will transcend politics, which all future admins will have to deal with.

World terrorism is not America's problem. Our politicians,along with BIG business, have made it our problem.Since WWII our military economy,has grown to the point that it is over 60% of our economy.Private contractors and civilians out number our military.This didn't happen overnight,yet it was intentional.Cuts to the military complex would be crippling to our economy thus providing the need for involvement in useless wars..Religious wars have gone on for centuries..no end in sight!

T, nice to see you commenting without blaming the administration per se. I was going to write almost exactly what you wrote, but you beat me to it.

Unfortunately, the Islam of today is no different than the Christianity of the Crusades or the Roman Catholicism of the Spanish conquistadors. They are not cults, they are the very definition of religion - intolerant of anyone else's views or beliefs and arrogant enough to think it is their duty to force you to think the way they do. It happens every day right here in America with these idiotic bible-quoting politicians who try to force their agendas on the citizenry. There is nothing new under the sun.

Wrong Bobbi...Islam is most certainly a religeon. Where has your research come up with the cult thing? There are radical groups in all religeons. Christian murder abortionists and bomb Planned Parenthood. Is Christianity a cult. Problem with you bigots is that your brush paints everyone. Show one reference that says Islam is a cult and don't tell me to look it up, I did.

I am more concerned about the here and now not what happened hundreds of years ago. Don't lecture me what happened during the crusades to legitimize what the zealots are doing now. Two wrongs have never made a right. I will defend your right to practice your religion or non-religion as long you respect my right.

Usedto, only liberals require consensus of opinion, not individualists. My opinion is my own and I believe islam is a cult, if you don't like that, it's not my problem, it's yours. The bigger question is since you have no problem labeling everybody you don't agree with as racist, bigoted, homophobic or any other pejorative why do have a problem with me calling president travon a racist? That's my OPINION too.

And once again Bobbi, you are entitled to your own opinions, you are not entitled to your own facts. To wit: Islam is a religeon

Liberal hate, anger and confusion on display for all to see. Once again, I've hit the target. Unlike you liberals, I've NEVER claimed my opinions were facts, you liberals have never learned the difference. I get sooo much enjoyment maneuvering liberals into fits of childlike angst, you fall for it every time. If I'm such a moron why can't you just ignore me instead of letting yourselves be baited?

I find it completely profound that the progressives that complain about posters NEVER and I do mean NEVER post anything about any topic except... OTHER POSTERS! How is this helpful in any way other than to demonstrate uselessness and a total lack of actual intelligent input or participation? When you get to the part in your grade school where they allow you to talk and have ideas stop back as I am in total bewilderment when it comes to how you think or even if you have tried to.
