to obama.. how do you stop a war that someone else declared on you?

the answer.. either surrender, or annihilate the enemy.

there is no other option.

I agree that these drone attacks are not getting us any closer to ending this war.

the best option is going nuclear and nuke the bastards into oblivion.

my suggestion on how to proceed.. locate the area with the highest activity. send in a small nuke. maybe 2 kilotons. tell the bastards when it is coming. and where.

when done. tell them that this punishment for their terrorism will increase exponentially with each new occurrence.

do this until they surrender or are annihilated.

..me concerned about the innocents on their side?..not the least bit. if their "innocents" are willing to allow these attacks and don't stop them, they are part of the problem.

they want war. let's give them war.

TOTAL WAR.

The CRISIS roll out continues, todays speech has returned to,'blame Congress'.
This may be a good opportunity to reduce the number of government employees. The House of Representative should begin the 'clean-up', the
ObamaSTAIN.

The "terrorists" that did the 911 attacks were most likely
Saudi Arabian Salafists. This has nothing to do with Iraq or
Afghanistan. Instead of our government doing a moratorium on
Middle East immigration, AIPAC lobbied our government Neocon
Zionists to wage war against Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Iraqis and Afghans defending their sovereign homelands
are patriots, just as I would be a patriot if Mexico attempted
a takeover of my nation.

Don't read me wrong, I'm hawkish on defense, but the
solution you propose is much like that from a 12-year-old who
just got done playing video games.

The war on terror will last for decades. Obama is smoking some bad stuff if he thinks we don't know the war with Islamic terrorists is far from over. Did he not witness the Boston bombing? That wasn't done by the little fairies. And that British soldier decapitated in broad daylight in London, that was done by a radical Muslim.

If Obama brings the military home Afghanistan this is a good
thing. The "terrorist" events you describe are the result of
an outright treasonous immigration policy. One that will get
only worse if the current immigration bill from the Senate
Committee becomes law. That is to say, when Obama signs it into
law.

The end of the war on terror would be when everyone achieve a universal conscience and know that everyone ability to choose should be protected with equality!

If this is known on a universal level nobody would be trying to make choices for other people and this is the MAIN REASON we have wars and terror! Everybody wants to make decisions for other people or control them with fear!

When human beings awareness/conscience raise to a universal level the war on terror would end!

Another meaningless attempt to give the media looking at a shiny object.

He wants folks looking ANYPLACE other then his chief of staff, justice department, chief counsel, defense, treasury, or CIA.

What does “war on terror” mean? As a concept, it is too ambiguous to try to understand and amounts to complete nonsense.

Is “war" a metaphor like “war on poverty” or “war on illiteracy,” meaning a concerted effort to solve a problem? Could it mean something completely different, as in an effort to militarize our efforts to enforce criminal laws? Could it mean some muddled combination of these extremes or possibly more?

The only way to end the “war on terror” is to apply semantic clarification logistics, not military tactics, though i needn’t be the least bit complicated. The only way to end the “war on terror” is to stop repeating the phrase as if it were a meaningful or useful concept.

Terror means extreme fear. Terrorists are people who use tactics that are intended to instill extreme fear, generally through criminal activity. It is not possible to prevent the use of terrorist tactics.
It is posible to enforce criminal law by prosecuting and punishing people who violate it, including terrorists.

We can end the “war on terror” by declaring it ended and should put an end to the confusion immediately.

I suggest you study the history of what is happening in the middle east some more before opening your mouth.

you don't know worth shit.

just yesterday, I heard that we've got muslims from lebanon in syria aiding their muslim brothers there.

over in nigeria, we have muslims coming all the way from canada aiding their muslim brothers there.

over in thailand, we have muslims from the philippines going to the aid of their muslim brothers in southern thailand. my guess is.. there are probably muslims in malaysia and even indonesia involved.

how about when israel was invaded by 7 muslim nations at the time they declared their independence?

when abdul khan put together the nuclear bomb for pakistan, how do you think he got the parts together? with cooperation from other muslim countries like indonesia, and even little malaysia who made the centrifuges.

did you know cair in the usa a muslim group on a regular basis holds charity drives for money to be given to support the muslim terrorist groups in the middle east?

this bullshit has been going on for ages.

only an idiot (or a muslim) will say there is no connection.

this IS a muslim problem. and therefore it should be dealt with as such.

as for YOU. if you hold allegiance to mexico over that to the usa, you shouldn't be in the usa. PERIOD.

Then we got us a long wait since this so called religion of peace still behaves and conducts itself the same way they did in the 12th century.
Don't look like they'll be "evolving" any time soon.
