Again, I don't care about a terrorist, I don't care about making them happy. There is no helping or making them happy that will change anything. I would like to know how to PREVENT FUTURE GENERATIONS FROM BECOMING TERRORIST.

No clue what would do that, but just say teaching people to critically think would cut down on the problem in the future. It would be cheaper and less destructive to help these countries build schools than to keep sending our money and our soldiers over there. NOT SAYING THAT IS THE ANSWER, BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT TAKEN THE TIME TO KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS, just using it as a example.

Yes, we are doing it wrong... We are using the military to fight a war on terrorism, when this is more a police action than a military action. When you have boots on the ground and soldiers in your country, it is a military invasion no matter the reason. When you violate your on Constitution it makes you look like hypercritics not beacons of freedom. I could care less what the terrorist think about us, but I do care about how we look to rest world and more important to me, I care about how we look to ourselves.

You can say they are over reacting, well I can’t speaking for the rest of the US, put if a foreign country would come into Texas to liberate us, we would consider them the enemy too.

Agreeing, just saying the Koran does not have the monopoly on it. People use the Bible to manipulate just as easily.
