"typical european liberal response... no offence.
how would you solve terror then? paying fees like spain?
by not responding we only encourage them.
if america had decimated syria and hezbollah after they murdered 200 US troops rather than leave, then perhaps 9-11 may not have occured."

That should have been thought about before nowadays direction's of foreing politics. Everything has reasons and causes.

However at this time it is too late for USA to think what should have been done or how should have been acted with foreing politics. Paying fees and giving up is the worst misstake. Spain's retreat only tells terrorists that terrorism works and it only encourages them. Anyway USA has it's own participation in causing international terrorism, just like Russia caused Beslan's school strike with it's actions in Chechnya.

Sorry for a bit of OT, but I'm interested how the scheme of transporting the weapon/s to the US would work.

On a sidenote, if the terrorists would plan to strike at nuclear power plants with ordinary explosive and cause radiation leakage, that would be more feasible to do than nuke something...at least IMO.

Thanks

Which meaning of "liberal" are you referring to exactly?

Quote:

You know, you can't. It is as simple as that. You can't "solve terror", just like you can't solve pain or anger.

You can limit its effects and reduce its risks, short term, find its sources, find the problem behind terror and deal with the reason of terror, long term.

And if some individual has developed the mental capabilities of keeping both objectives in perspective and at the same time anticipate the effects of his actions on different levels, he may have doubts about our current course of action, even if this results in him carrying this meaningful title of "libral".

You can't solve terror, just like you cannot solve war.
It will always happen. You have to keep fighting it but it's one of things that will never truly go away.

The only socialistic thing i accept is free education. As an university student i live like a king and almost anything costs nothing. Plus of course lot of free time, partys, hobbies, taking easy and other stuff i like and sometimes working with a good salary and low tax rate 8)

In USA: No money -> no education -> poor 4 ever.
In Europe No money -> education anyway -> lot of money and good international career possiblities -> more money 8)

In the US you can apply for a student loan. If you don't have money but still do decent enough in public school, they'll let you have it.

If all else fails, there's always the Army

So you can do here but loans must be paid back.

"If all else fails, there's always the Army"

Army is the last change but studying to an officer couldn't be a bad idea. Takes only few years but better way is to get a civil education and then back to army. Better jobs, better salaries and no grunts nearby. However civil companys pay better anyway and man can be the master of own.

And loans here.

And free medical care. Come to think of it, the poor are as important as the rich, unlike the states where its getting wrose.
