Which of the three best describes the US with regard to our approch to the so called "War on Terroism."

The Art of War (Special Edition) it states:

1) "If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles."

2) "If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat."

3) "If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle."
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

As much as you seem to hate the idea of diplomatic solutions (or even maintenance of diplomatic relationships), you're going to have to deal with actually deal with it so we don't make an enemy out of everyone for the sake of eliminating just one.

If we continue what we are doing in the Middle East to fight a war, we will never win, history proves this. The only way to win is to blow them up. If a country does not agree with us, they will get over it because we will kill them if they threaten us. In addition, why do we even need diplomacy. Eliminate the threats. Profit off of the elimination of the threats. Why does the US even care about aiming to please everyone.
