War On 'Terror' ?
 
well i for one am starting to wonder what the point of all this attacking on afghanistan is going to achieve?

its just going to bring more death to innocent civillians because of 'missed targets'

and to top it off there's more heated words exchanged more anthrax, more paranoia, more fear, and bin laden has actually won when this happens

do we need a world like this?

ok two large buildings are downed and 7000 are dead and its going to take a long time to clear up the rubble

but cant we let sleeping bodies lie?

from the moment they attacked afghanistan it became odd, because terrorism still reigns throughout the world, throughout the middle east, throughout africa and south america. but no, someone has called this a 'war on terrorism'.

its beginning to look more like 'angry americans taking out their frustration on the fact they cant catch bin laden'

oh well, just as long as people continue to live in their little boxes they will continue to believe the media propaganda generated that there is actually something that is going to be achieved out of all this

i think there will be controversy generated on this post, but someone has got to make the call, sitting on the fence

One thing that you must consider is what would happen if America and the world did nothing. Would the terror stop? Would Osama feel like he should stop killing innocent people? Would the Islamic militants' hatred toward the free world cease?

No. Never.

I really dont think there is anything anyone on this planet can do to alter the opinion and purpose of these types of people. War is about the only suggestion anyone can come up with, but that doesnt mean its gonna be successful. Unfortunately after Bin Laden goes others will take his place. And after the Taliban are gone, unfortunately there will be other groups to take their place.

CrashedCarDriver 11-08-2001 07:00 AM

yeh but how on earth are you going to get bin laden just by doing this?

a man hunt would be more called for instead or something else of just bombing and thinking a country and thinking they are achieving something in the process

also i heard the death toll is not all that great (ok its still great) but its less than 2000 from last accounts

So you think that Afganistan would just let American/UN forces could just walk around their country at free will?

hmm... someone on the web said that the toll is about 1700 in the WTC

anyway its been tight lipped on how many people have died for the last month or so as well, so im thinking not that as many died


U2Bama 11-08-2001 10:03 AM

That's some great evidence you have to back up that number, CrashedCarDriver!

Are you disputing the validity of "someone on the web"?

the media being all tight lipped on how many people have actually died

that's THE EVIDENCE

this is turning out to be a bigger exercise of propaganda than just politics in this so-called 'holy' war


U2Bama 11-08-2001 10:56 AM

You can go to most any media outlet, government, corporate, or independent, and they will have the numbers missing vs. the numbers recovered broken down, and it is usually in the 4,000 to 5,000 range. What some yahoo says on the internet about 2,000 should not be considered evidence.

And remember, it is the Taliban and bin Laden, NOT the U.S., who is calling this a "holy war."

Yeah, only 100 people died in the holocoust.
You're a fucking moron.

Over 110 people died in my 1.5-2 square mile neighborhood alone.

Why don't you count the funerals. Or are the US government hiring actors to fall apart and sob over an American Flag draped casket. Again, you're a fucking moron.

Pfft, the American and UN forces do not want to walk around there, after the cluster bombs.

Crashed, taht's the confirmed dead. The 5000+ number is the missing. And at this point, if they're not accounted for, they're dead.

So, as you can see everything the US is doing is making Ossama Bin Laden think that he should stop killing unitedstatians...now he is REALLY scared...that's why he is laughing his fucking ass off in front of your faces. C'mon ppl! (Oups I should not talk, i remembered that im anti US)

I cant believe how the things are turning...I mean...I read today that Powell want to bomb Irak after Afganistan 'cos US does not want that a country that has developed great arms thinks that they dont count on it, or something...wasnt it about terrorism?...BTW the US has some Al Qaeda bases (quite redundat) in it's territory, so count the whole world as a place for terrorism...(and join Amnesty International)

Tons of love, and in this comming days more than ever and specially to Anma and any other muslims pals: As salamu alai kum! Allah Hafiz! (I can't believe that you'll keep bombing durin Ramadam...I can't believe it...It is as senseless as someone fliying a plane into a tower, so as you can see, everything is possible in this world...)

PS confused: If Im not on the US side...and Im not on the Terrorist side...and Im not in the middle (Cos none of them is even quite right for me) in wich side am i?
