No matter where we are, no matter WHO we are, the risk of terrorism will ALWAYS be around us. We are people of America and we can not get rid of terrorism, it is always around us.

I shall play as the Devil's Advocate in this one.

You can't say that the US's policies haven't done anything. They've brought in many leaders and top people of al Qaeda. Is that making is less risky for terrorism? I'd say so.

Well basically I have nothing further than the fact that we have brought in many top operatives of terrorist groups, and while there is still a athreat, nobody can say we haven't done a single thing.

Of course the policies institutded after 9/11 have made us safer and reduced the "risk of terrorism." We havent been attacked in 7 years, Al-Qaeda is getting owned in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Muslims are starting to rebel against the radical extremists. Look at Jordan and Egypt for example. The radical extremists parties in those respective governments have lost vast support over the past 5 years because of our policies, because we're winning the war in Iraq, because people are starting to realize the sheer brutality of extremists.

Well revleader5 you obviously win. I am glad you are playing devil's advocate, I'm pretty sure the U.S policies have actually had the opposite effect.
