What Happened to the War on Terror?

Can somebody please tell me what happened to the “War on Terror”? It somehow turned into “Lets Liberate Iraq”. Not that I’m not for spreading democracy throughout the globe, but we never finished the fight. President Bush declared war against all terrorist after September 11, and then sometime thereafter he gave up the fight.

The enemy is the Radical Islamists and all the muslim nations that support them. I would love to see the United States get more aggressive with Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan. There are a handful of nations that the United States know support terrorists and it’s time we take the fight to them. Economic sanctions, cutting aid, blockading their waterways. Then, if those nations aren’t cooperating by eliminating the terrorists within their borders we should send missiles/and troops.

Yes, the attacks in London have upset me. I hope they’ve upset you, too.

    Erik, I agree with you on that one, but I’m afraid if we took on anymore we would be outnumbered. Then we would be defeated for sure.

    And it pains me to say this but…..

    Given America’s massive dependence on oil, I just don’t Saudi Arabia ever being sanctioned. There are to many powerful and rich men in the US that will not let their steady flow of riches be interrupted.

    Howdy David….

    I’m not saying we start invading the Muslin/ Middle-East countries that support terror with thousands of troops I’m saying we start economic sanctions. That we threaten to stop buying oil. The rich in Saudi are only rich because we buy their oil. If we stop buying their oil they won’t be rich. If we stop sending US goods to Saudi that will suffer.

    Then those nations might start to “weed out” the friggin’ radical muslims. And if they don’t…. We send over MORE Special Ops, Navy Seals, and undercover CIA agents and we start identifing terrorist bases/camps and we fly over there and elimanate them. Yes, there will most likely be innocent casualities, but this is war. A WAR AGAINST TERROR!

    See my response to David’s comment. I think it answers your questions, too.
