I remember reading something to this effect before, I'm not sure if on a thread or a news site, but here goes...
Pre-emptive strikes. It's what we just did in Iraq, and rather than helping the war against terror, it seems to be doing the opposite. My thoughts, a
war is to large an effort, there are to many extraneous things that go wrong, it is far to big of a target as well.
So how about this, instead of attacking an entire country, we just kill those in charge. I'm not talking about a poisoning or a dagger in the dark,
I'm talking about the strategic bombing of a building they sleep in. Or a special ops group sent to eliminate a terrorist leader in his bed. Small,
quick operations of this nature. There would be no large scale war to gear up for. Civilian casualties would be drastically reduced. And it would
accomplish our goals, eliminating the structure terrorists survive on.
I understand what I advocate is a hair above murder, and in some instances is impractical. But I also believe in can be done and should be done. I
would like to hear others' opinions on this, and maybe some examples.
