It is hard, I understand the thousands that died in 911 need to be vindicated and stop from happening again, by being there instead of here to help those countries with their farmers and college students who have nothing better to do but start war. On the other, hand I am more worried about our ability to stay economically sound than I am about college students and farmers with bombs, as our national self defense if our economy was solid should be able to secure boarders and interior better with more economy, and less US starving and deprivation. Then again, I do not think we should leave the sand box until those countries can tell us they can handle their terrorists, so we do not have to handle them here. As we have to deal with our own terrorists and their terrorists.
So that means we need to compete better so we can raise intelligence against Communist market places so we do not have to touch our terrorists intelligence forces.
