The term, war on terror, is an oxymoron. War is terror. So, fighting terror with terror doesn't make much sense. Terror is not an enemy. Terror is the tactic
of an enemy. A war on a tactic will, most likely, never end because the object of the war, the tactic, can never be eradicated.
9/11 should never have been treated as an "act of war". It was a criminal act perpetrated by non-state criminals. We didn't need to invade and occupy 2 countries to fight international terrorists; we especially didn't need to invade the second country because they had nothing to do with 9/11.
, something needs to be done about international terrorists! But, it would seem that America needs to adopt a more effective strategy to fight international terrorists... Maybe more brains and less uber-military power is needed. I dunno for sure. I just think the current strategy is not working very well.
And, what this new "effective strategy" might be is way beyond me...
