GeorgeH BS: America has LOST THE WAR (113* d) RE: BS: America has LOST THE WAR 21 Sep 01

To my mind a lot of the replies here indicate just how close to the truth Donnel is . .

As for the person who said "The only way we can lose the war against terrorism is by betraying our own principles of decency, fairness and justice.", well, that really hands it to Donnel, Game, Set and Match. Even within its own land, the US's principles of "Decency, fairness and justice" are often pretty hard to discern. In its international policies and actions they're often invisible.

Oh, and Terrorism isn't an entity on which you can make war, its a strategy. Which (amongst its other deployments) will always be used by those who have no other way to redress what they perceive as wrongs.

Finally, will the US start its global and all-inclusive war against terrorism by a categoric and irrevocable undertaking that it will never again give overt or covert support to any terrorist organisation?

In the State Sponsorship of Terrorism league the US comes pretty high - which says a lot about its committment to "decency, fairness and justice".

I guess I ought to stay out of here before I cause too much more upset. The extent to which people's hearts have run away with their heads is both frightening and deeply depressing . .
