All this war talk is kind of funny...

If we do something, it will be directed towards the terrorists, not Afganistan as a whole. Afganastanians are not bad as a whole (remember the ship stuck at Australia trying to flee Afganastan?)

So here's my take on it... We kill some terrorists, they might strike back, so we kill more. No countries are really involved unless we
a) punish them for harboring or defending the llama terrorists
b) strike first


I dont see where a "world war III" is really going to develop if we punish a few terrorists or the whole terrorist faction. Does a country really want the smackdown from the U.S. for defending a few worthless souls? I doubt it.

The war that is going to be waged may not be fought between states. Instead it will be fought between thoose seeking freedom, justice and peace and those who believe in extreme, terrorist causes. And if states (most likely Afghanistan and/or Iraq) decide they'll side with the enemies of freedom then they will share in their destruction.

We cannot punish a whole country of innocent lives because of one faction of terrorists. Period. No matter what.

One thing to be cautious about is the word "jihad", the fanatics in Afghanistan and Pakistan are already calling for a holy war against the U.S. and the western countries. If any other Arab countries decide to take this holy war serious, then they may attack or at least try to defend Afghanistan. You also have to remember, the Soviet Union wasted almost a decade trying to defeat Afghanistan.

Some of you are going to be surprised, IMO. There are governments involved in this, there is going to be a war.

really, its a no win situation for US.

Ppl alreayd died.

We retaliate; they come back and strike back some more

We kill some more of them (including innocent victims)

They come back with a vengence.

everyone sees that too. Thats why this is such a big deal, FAR bigger than Desert Storm, etc.
