How well is the fight against Al Qaeda progressing?
A year after the Sept. 11 attacks, questions persist as to why
US intelligence and military operations haven't been able to capture Osama bin Laden and dissolve Al Qaeda terror cells. How well do you believe the US is doing in its effort to eradicate Al Qaeda? Have sufficient measures been taken to stomp out the possibility of future terror attacks?

I believe the only way to fully eradicate the terrorist problem in the world is for a U.S. led task force to go into the middle east and purge it of all potential terrorists. It would be like an ethnic cleansing except for evil people. And we all know that over 3/4 of those people are evil anyways.

Play the blame game all you want, this didn't begin with George W...I recall the Clinton Administration had a play in this as well. I am angry that they did this to my country-they deserve to be punished. Taking things like oil away from them will not make them understand. I am as liberal as the next person-I didn't want a war, I certainly don't want 9/11 to happen again. Enough is enough, these people obviously cannot be reasoned with. Osama and his people are cowards, killing people, hiding, using religion...it's sickening. Tell the people who lost loved ones that we shouldn't have a war. I don't see what other choice we have. It sickens me that last year at this time this was the farthest thing from my mind.
To answer the question: "Has war,or fighting ever solved anything??" I am pretty sure war stopped the Nazi's from killing more Jews - good things do come from it and I believe good things will come from fighting terrorism. If you are against defending the US properly or standing behind your leaders, move somewhere else so you can hide from reality.
Here's my fix for all problems.... 1st Make our immigration department the most technologically advanced system ever. Lie detection system passage needed for all entrants. 2nd Make a parking lot out of Iraq and call it Oilville. It will be our 51st State and we'll sell oil while putting an end to all taxation in the USA. Our economy will fly like never before.
It's a total joke. People still routinely board planes with weapons. US airports still can't even do a decent job of screening passengers. We are years away from making this country safe from terrorists, regardless of what name they go by. I am embarrassed for Bush and his cabinet. Until the government realizes that being buddies with the saudis is not helping, there is little hope to stop future terrorism. Anyone who thinks Hussein and Iraq is not a threat should be sent there to live.
A friend of mine described it to me today by saying,"It's like trying to rid the world of cockroaches." If you think about it long enough,-- he's right.
