I don't understand how the US can release reasonable, informed reports that say
and yet still carry out policies that don't deal with these actual problems.
Let's put these together shall we:
1. There is a small but extremely dangerous decentralized, worldwide network of terrorists, enabled by the Internet
2. Let's devote all our efforts to attacking Iraq
How can you clearly state #1, as they have done, and not then go on to conclude that invading Iraq was and continues to be a fatal distraction from dealing with the actual enemy.
An actual enemy which you deal with through the same tried-and-true on-the-ground, legal, intelligence gathering techniques that have worked for decades. No hundreds of billions of dollars, no tens of thousands of dead Iraqs, just very smart men and women, all over the world, working hard to understand and stop criminals.
Ok, that's it. Enough ranting for today.
