I don't see anyone "fighting terrorists". All I see is the dipsomaniac
cocaine-snorting deserter and his supporters sending young men to their
deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan so that Bush, Cheney and their pals can
line their pockets. Is that what you mean by "fighting the terrorists" ?

Whoa, there Paul. Sending troops to Afghanistan was legitimate. bin
Laden was operating from there, and the Taliban government did support
and aid him. Of course, Bush fucked that all up and accomplished little
or nothing after getting the Taliban out of the government, which in the
long run didn't do all that much (although it did help somewhat
regarding the way women are treated there).
Support the troops: Bring them home ASAP.

No, those were the Good Taliban of the East, the ones who are fighting
the Soviets. We're talking about the Bad Taliban of the West now. ;-)
