    It's not a war anymore; it's the Americans helping the Afghans create a democracy and it's the Taliban killing innocent Muslims so they can sell their opium.

    The so-called "War on Terror" by any name-has failed for a simple reason. It is because there is NO SUCH A THING as war on terror. Come on people! Terrorism is a technique, a method, a weapon, a means to an end. Terrorism is not an enemy that can be named or identified, much less fought effectively.

    A "War on Terror" is a war on shadows, a war on nothing and on no one. It is a fool's errand. Terrorism is the “How”, the “WHO” are true and devoted MUSLIMS and the “WHY” is the cult ideology called ISLAM!

    Until you can understand WHO and WHY we are fighting, our self deception will DEFEAT us!
