Time to get your War on...

Could we stop hiding in teh closet and shaking long enough to get a grip? Think about it really - over 100,000 people die each year in car accidents, and we're not spending another 46 billion to fight a "war on car accidents".

559,650 people die each year of cancer, and we're still debating INSURANCE(and whether or not to care for some people), not investing in research in an all out "War on Cancer".

Between 9200 and 24000 deaths per year are attributed to Multiple Sclerosis, and we're not getting our War On and pouring money into MS research and discovery.

We need to get some perspective. Terrorism is superfluous if we terrorize ourselves to benefit Halliburton and OBL. Our federal government needs to find it's courage, and it's spine. Terrorism is a crime, not a declaration of war. It needs to be treated like a crime, investigated, and the perps brought to justice. That is just not being done, and every second our people are occupying Iraq is draining our treasury, sullying our honor, and killing and maiming and causing great mental harm to a large population - both in Iraq and here at home.

WTP is going on???

I'm sorry, but you are being entirely too logical. That does not fit the dominant paradigm. There is simply no room for logic. Sorry.
