Is the war and terrorism a smoke screen designed to keep us from seeing the domestic down fall in our country? Domestic issues are being ignored or brushed over because of what is happening in Iraq.

The domestic problems are endless, Crime, homelessness, low graduation rates, high unemployment, high taxes, bankrupcy rates, illiteracy, the high deficit and the dropping dollar, young people leaving cities in droves.

Is this "war on terror" designed specifically to mask the true problems? Or are the problems in the Middle East what our country and government should be focused on?

I don't think it's specificly for that purpose, but it is a positive side-effect from the point of view of the Neo(kill'em all)conservatives

Yup, a certain MD or PHD or whatever will write to say that it's better to let these folks rot on the quiet because they are not white or republican.

they do use it as a tool, but the fight itself is real. there are real terrorists out there who definately wish to harm the usa and its allies. i dont want another large scale attack to happen anywhere in the world, on our soil or not. imagine a bio-threat released in tokyo - that would screw the whole world over economicaly. its things like this we need to prevent, and if we are preventing them well never know till one happens. then we can say oops didnt see that one comin, again.
