More Terrorism

Well it seems to be settled. We've stopped several large-scale terrorist plots with police-type work, while the war in Iraq has done nothing. I hope the Republicans (and especially this administration) realize that the way to fight terrorists is through intelligence-gathering and police operations rather than through invading unrelated countries.

Invasion is a useful tool to have, but it will only work under specific circumstances. In Afghanistan, the terrorists located in a relatively small area and were being helped by the local government. It appears that the new generation of terrorists have neither of these characteristics. On the other hand, from what I've read, many of the terrorists are in camps in our ally Pakistan, if anyone's looking for another country to invade.

And hopefully now we won't have to listen any more to "generate terrorists there so we don't have to fight them here".
