So I guess we have wasted hundreds of Billions of Dollars on nothing.
The work going on here really is indicative of the challenge we face, not only this week, but this year and the years to come,” in the global war on terrorism sparked by the September 11, 2001 attacks, said Bush.
The president, suffering in the polls because of sky-high gas prices and the unpopular war in Iraq, was on the second day of a week-long push on national security and the economy, two critical issues in the November 7 vote.
Democrats, however, have charged that Bush’s decision to attack Iraq diverted precious resources from the broader global war on terrorism, and sharply criticized him for failing to capture or kill Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. You can not fight a war against an idea. As long as there is a pissed off person with a gun, terror and violence will happen, it’s human nature.
