LOSING THE "WAR ON TERROR"
Happy "Mission Accomplished" Anniversary!
If the goal of the so-called "war on terror" is to REDUCE terrorism, then the U.S. is losing that war.
Compared to 2005, terrorist attacks were UP 25% in 2006, and 40% more people were killed by extremists in 2006. This is coming from the Bush administration's own State Department, which said there were around 14,000 terror attacks in 2006.
Just under half of those were in Iraq!
If on the other hand, the publicly unstated but actual goal of the "war on terror" is to reduce the civil liberties of Americans and give their tax money away in the form of fat government contracts to the military-industrial complex, we're winning the "war on terror" big-time! Go USA!
