Get this through your stupid skulls, you right-wing morons. The “War on Terror” is not a war, and it can’t be won. Do you actually believe we can kill every single one of the terrorists? Do you think if we just kill enough of them and they will come out one day waving white flags to surrender? Do you actually believe we can capture them all and stuff into a black hole in Cuba?
Get real. Terrorism is not something that can be beaten by force. Of course you have to keep it in check with force, of course you have to defend your self with force, but this idiotic rhetoric that we can “win” the war on terror by killing all the terorists is just right-wing justification for greed and proselytizing. Don’t get this confused with guerilla wars, those are over territory, and can be ended one way or the other. Terrorism is a fight over ideas, and there is no way to extinguish ideas. All you can do is hope to make them scarce, and to provide better ideas as alternatives.
“I have more young men to throw at this bloody fight than you do” is not a winning idea. “My walls are so high you will never get in (and I won’t ever come out)” is not a winning idea. “We love the Iraqi/Afghani/brown people, but don’t touch my sister” is not a winning idea.
Believe me, smart people know this. George Bush knows this, but he continues to mislead and betray the American people, and the American spirit.
Wake up, America. This is your future. We can’t beat the terrorists by killing everyone.
