I would like to believe that our aggression in the middle east has actually caused more terrorism (and terrorists) but its impossible not to justify this war with the threat of sept 11th happening again on an even greater scale (nuclear even). It can be argued that we waited too long to go into world war 2 and we should have acted sooner. well, this war against terrorism is us acting sooner just like we should have done in WW2. If we are not at war over there then we will be at war on our own soil. how can we have that? we must fight against those that wish to destroy us. If you are against this war then you are for the violent spread of islam everywhere... even right into your home.
