Well, the Global War on Terror is not going well, evidently and that shadowy band of high tech Ameriphobic cave dwellers are reaching Fosset and Ludlumesque powers of connivance and worldwide disruption. From Asia Times
…more than five years after Bush’s speech, the administration seems determined to maintain a military “surge”, having added 20,000 soldiers. Making no apologies for the war’s contribution to an increase in terrorist activities, Bush’s officials continue to rationalize it as a commonsense response to ongoing violence, conveniently omitting the US’s own part in this violence; the report doesn’t classify any of the thousands of innocent victims killed by US or coalition forces as victims of terrorism.
Maybe we ought to consider something novel like diplomacy and sharing and common sense.
