The war on terror can never be won, only managed. The days of fighting
terrorism with large numbers of boots on the ground, artillery, and motorized
hardware are over. We now need to wage war against terrorism with surgical air
strikes from aircraft carriers and upside their head Hellfire missiles fired
from drones. We know we are winning when we are not getting hit while
continuing to decimate our enemy’s leadership ability to strike back.
While I don’t hold to the lunatic conspiracies of some of our own so
called leaders, Benghazi would suggest that the war is not over!
"Under the reign of a republicon president."And Vice
President who had previously been the Secretary of Defense. @Dont
TreadLet me pose this question for you. What decides if a war on
terror is won? How many more billions of dollars and American lives are to be
"...But everyone should remember, that era ended on a clear skied day in
September...".Under the reign of a republicon president.
Does anybody see history repeating here? The democrats want to erase the entire
affair of the War on Terror and 9/11 and are establishing the same mentality,
and the same defense cuts, as the Clinton years. Peace is the presence of
justice, and not the absence of conflict. If we move on with a blind eye to the
middle east, does that mean the War on Terror is over? Maybe for us. Not for
them.We have moved from an era of solidarity against extremist aggression
to an era of ending wars and not winning wars. We wanna go back to the happy go
lucky days of peace through blind-eyed diplomacy, the era of Clinton? Go ahead.
But everyone should remember, that era ended on a clear skied day in September.
