Yes. We should consider the Bloods and Crips in Watts to be on the same level as Al Qaeda in the Afghan-Pakistan border. We must hunt them relentlessly like the animals they are.

go live there and then report back to me smart ass. i lived in LA, i know what its like. while they dont have the access to the same destructive capabilities and not a terrible threat to our national security, they are none the less rather dangerous and normal people forced to live around them are quite fearful of them.

Is Saudi crumbling or their rickety leadership/fiefdom? It's because of the Saudi's spinelessness that we're there in the first place. Ok, overstated that, but face it, they are significant contributors to the sentiment that exists in that region. Now they are getting a taste of their own medicine.

um... no terrorist is motivated by religion. none of the monotheist religions condone acts of terror. instead they are motivated by ideology.
can you please add some crediblity to your voice and quit associating terrorism to islam?

i mean...you leave me no choice but to associate being stupid to being a redneck.

Terrorists aren't winning, they are just showing the ineffectiveness of US policy thus far. We cannot possibly exterminate the terrorist threat to this country through military action. We must, instead, rexamine our fundamental policies towards the countries from which these terrorists arise. The US must realize that it must change it's image in the world if it is to combat terrorism. We must make ourselves a more difficult target to rally opposition around by not acting so unilaterally. We must learn to respect the institutions (such as the UN, the Kyoto Treaty, etc) that we helped to create. There should also be a dedicated effort made to improve the living conditions of other peoples around the world.

With anti-american groups gaining public sentiment, one would wonder why we EVER want a democracy in Iraq or anywhere in the middle east.

Can't wait til some of them get elected to office.

they are winning not only in the MidEast and elsewhere, but here at home,

the hundreds of billions stolen and misspent by the Repubs and the massive
expansion of the federal government, the questioning of rationality itself
that has overtaken America and the abuse of power are far greater threats
than a few guys in airplanes. Without Sept. 11th, the Repubs would not control
the Senate, might have lost the House, and Dumya would be nowhere close
to re-election

Yeah Right, that's why they yell death to America and yes to Islam. The people who are helping express this anti-american rhetoric are the Clerics from there temples. It's a warped form of Islam and it does have a pretty good following in the middle east.
