I'll tell you what: let's spend two days worth of bombing money, let's say $4 billion, to set up food/medicine banks that we physically set up and disburse, so no sheik or warloard gets the goods . Let's see what happens, huh?

That's my toughts.
SO, to plug numbers into your dementia, we allocate $4 Billion in food & meds to a terror hotspot ( one can't be an angry young man while healthy, with a full belly, and a job, can one?) and do the distribution so it doesn't go black market, thus laying the ground work for prosperity & growth in that region. THIS catches us in a cycle where we can't stop 'paying them' and our own defense budget is left so anemic we end up having zero safeguards and we get overrun ( on camel back I guess ) and slaughtered?
People of your ilk, as seen on the boards with your other far Right Wing cohorts, operate under such irrational fears that's it's no wonder you are all led round by the nose, critical thinking be damned.

pheonix, would you care to explain the logic in your statement, because i can't understand how you arrive at that conclusion.
in both of these cases violence from controlling governments did not stop the terror. the terrorists just fought on. only through peaceful discussion, negotiation and development has any headway been made on these two fronts at all.

Hamas has stated that is does not want peace,only the death of all Jew's.So until these terrorists decide to change there way of thinking,that killing innocent people,taking hostages,walking away from peace talks we are not left with much of a choice.

I don't want diplomatic relations with Al Qaeda - I want them dead. Or should we ask Arafat to chip in as he's worth about 10 BILLION dollars?
