I just came up with an idea on how to end the war on terror. The plan is that we covertly start some sort of divide between in the Middle East. By starting some kind of rivarly or civil war we can get terrorists to fight each other. If they're fighting themselves they'll forget about the US. This way we wouldn't have terrorists going after us. Let's face it we can't win a war on terror so why not end it.

Good idea
Isnt that exactly what's currently happening in Iraq ?
The US set up Iraqi police stooges as punching bags for the resistants.

Iraqis kill iraqis,
Rumsfeld happily pees

Although they've been doing some fighting they all seem to be fairly united against the US. I think that it would help if public attention and Al-Jareez would focus on fighting each other instead of the US.

The US and britan trie this before. It resulted in the iranina revolution and, acorrding to one person, wahabbism. Divide and conquer. 'Cept everyone forgot the conquer part. This tactic was good when the problem was german tribes living beyond the rhine, or african tribes living in the congo. Now, however, when the people you've been 'dividing' realize that -you- are the reason why their entire world is violence and garbage, they can actually get back at you.

-Might- work so long as the unifying forces are kept out of play. In the past this was a mix of facism and communism, with the 'arabs' being the nationality or the muslims in general taking the place of the marxist proletariat, up against the western bougeroise. Baathism and pan-arab nationalism are still pretty well alive over there, but without baathist iraq and arafat rotting in the dirt, they might be on their way out. -However- islam as a religion is naturally -unitive-, and is 'pan-arabism' doesn't work, pan-islamism will still be around, so that would allow them to put aside their local differences to, at least sporadically, organize attacks against the west. Plus, what happens when one side wins? The Northern Alliance was made up of groups that had fought eachother into utter ruin after the struggle against the communists, and that allowed the Taliban to sweep in. Notice also that they weren't nationalists nor socialists, but religious conservatives. 'Taliban' itself means 'student'.



Let's face it we can't win a war on terror so why not end it.

Why can't it be won? Destroy the governments and powerstructures throught the region and set up a situation where democratic self rule can come in to play, while simultaneously reconstructing the countries and removing the reasons for their next gen (or at least a generation or two from now) to take up arms in a suicide struggle against an unbeatable enemy.

I do agree that democracy would be a good idea for all nations, but as for the war on terror-style democracy, it's democracy at gunpoint.

Democracy at gunpoint is the equivalent of family-friendly fascism, in my opinion.

I personally think that the best way for America to get over this war on terror thing is to go back to the pre-WWII policy of isolationism. Let the governments of other countries govern themselves, and fight their own wars. America doesn't need to be the world's plolice department.
