they've proved that iraq has links to al queda, but not that they were involved with 9/11. though it wouldn't suprise me if they were

Just going down the list of countries that thought that was O.K. Don't have to get them in any particular order, as long as we get them.
No. Would be terrorists need to be shown that no terrorist action is going to be tolerated in ANY country. NOT just the US.

Not a problem. Too bad there are so many who think that we can work things out peacefully with them.

Could someone please explain to me why the debate on terrorism has also polluted this forum? I was under the optimistic impression that we were keeping it contained in the Off-topic Zone.

A totally peaceful resolution is not going to happen but we don't need to go all gungho and just bomb everyone. Besides the problem runs much deeper than that. Blowing up the current terrorists isn't going to top future terrorism.

Well, OK. But we can minimise the influence of those wacky over zealous types so that terrorism is no longer a real threat. This does not involve blowing things up.

Now, who said we want to get blown up by some wacko or contract anthrax?

Fun is subjective. They arrested a guy last year for hiding in the woods under planks covered in leaves, wanting to get run over by ATVs and such.
