|Despite what some politically ambitious senator from Florida is saying, the war on terrorism has proven effective. Sure Al qaeda is not destroyed (neither is Communism/Naziism/or even Race based Slavery -previous "Wars"). But let's face it, GWB's actions means that most terorist actions will be in the Middle East and on to Afghanistan/Pakistan. In other words Muslim countries. And if someone has to die, I would prefer Al Qaeda kill other muislims. This means in the long term fewere recruits.
Of course this does mean that Americans working overseas in Muslim countries should ALL get hazardous duty pay. And that telecommute remote management is the way of the future for corporate types (Thank you Arthur C. Clarke).
Gotta love religious fanatics, they really do get predictable.
