Haven't the terrorists ALREADY beaten us by tricking us into spending billions (or trillions) on pointless war

No, I wouldn't say that the Islamofacists have beaten us, but they are winning many battles.
If you believe right wing Republicans, Reagan's legacy is that he bankrupt the Soviets. Consider we got caught in an ego battle in Vietnam and ultimately withdrew.
The Islamofacitsts apparently learn better than we do. They are following a game of hide and seek Afghanistan, Kashmir, opportunistic in Iraq, saber rattling in Iran, back to Afghanistan, and so forth. This will cost us trillions, just like Reagan did to the Soviets. At the same time, we are caught, again, in the middle of civil, religious and "warlord" encounters without end, just like Vietnam (agree to some differences).
On balance, we are hemorrhaging money and lives and our enemies are laughing at us.
We can NOT do this alone. We need a leader who will unite our friends, change our image and get Muslim leaders to fight for themselves against terrorists.

Pointless War Lets see We Removed a Dictator who had invaded his neighbors on several occasions. Used Chemical Weapons on his own People killed Thousands of them. All of this The world is a far better place regardless with Hussein not in it. There have been Chemical weapons found, As well as Yellow cake for nuclear weapons Production. I tell you liberals close your eyes to every fact that dose not meet your fantasy world. And in the process you are lessening The brave men and women who have fallen. And you wounder why people Question your Honor and Patriotism! The terrorist Actualy Won When they Recruted the Dems to defend them and give them the rights of a country that they despise. The terroriest win every time a liberal Dem opens his mouth and defends them . That is when they win.

MMM Extremely interesting question and to say the most your absolutely right.
We have been tricked into spending billions of dollars almost each year for this war but to say the least there more money where that come from.

You can certainly look at it that way.
We are in a war that is keeping their attention in their neighborhood. They don't have to cross an ocean to attack us, we are there. It costs us much more than it costs them and it gives them the talking points to create more terrorists.
We can't sustain the war costs, so the war is going to have to end at some point. What's going to happen then? We'll probably have another attack in the US.

Have we been attacked since 9/11? No. I'd hardly call it pointless.
The only thing in this world that is pointless is a liberal.
A liberal is a person to open mined to take his/her/it's own side in an argument.

Yes, it was OBL's stated goal to goad the US into an expensive campaign that would "bankrupt" the US and alienate us further from the rest of the world...

No they won by getting us to elect so called lears that gladly take away our civil rights because they hate our freedom.

Pointless is your opinion.
- truth seekerLv 71 decade ago
pretty much. Attacking and invading Iraq is exactly what they wanted us to do. Bush was more than happy to comply.
