USA Today just announced that, since the death of terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, 48% of those polled believe the US will probably or definitely win the war on terrorism.
What’s wrong with 48% of American’s?
Israel has been killing top terrorist leaders for decades now and how close are they to winning the war on terror? They’re so close to winning it that their actions have resulted in a terrorist organization winning control of Palestine democratically. England fought terrorists from the IRA and never defeated them through violence and aggression.
The bottom line is that we’ve essentially walked up to a bee’s nest and knocked it around with a bat. Killing off some of the main bees isn’t going to stop the bees from attacking us while we stand there threatening them. The only way to win that battle is to leave the area and leave the bees to their own end.
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed and the radio pundits were out in force talking about what a huge blow this was and how everything will be different now. The very next day three Iraqi militia were beheaded and the violence is still going on.
48% of Americans need to get their heads out of their backside and look at history to see how these sorts of situations are quelled. Terrorism doesn’t get defeated by force. That does nothing but incite more terrorism.
