We must stop letting the Bush administration continue to get away with falsely equating the "War on Terror" with the war in Iraq. BEN LADIN IS NOT IN IRAQ. You cannot equate Sadam Hussein and Iraq with "terrorism" with what happened to us on 911. Terrorism is Ben Ladin hence Al Qaeda -- and Al Qaeda is not in Iraq but in Afghanistan and Pakistan with cells around the World. And, the Republican's chant of "staying the course in Iraq" is not concentrating on terrorism but a craftily disguised argument to continue the so-called war in Iraq -- more like occupation of Iraq, while consequently taking are eyes off the Real War on Terror while Iraq escalates more and more into a Civil War, WHY?

And as a consequence, this occupation in Iraq has lead to increased enmity, hatred and distrust in that part of the world for Americans and Britains, leading to increased hostility and more plots of terrorism on Americans and Britains (to get back at the occupiers). Our presence there is increasing terrorism not defeating it.

We must stop being mislead. Have we truly asked ourselves what the war in Iraq has to do with the war on "Terror"? Have we stopped thinking for ourselves. We must stop letting the Bush administration "define" such a misleading and untrue message. We are Americans, we are smart, we are free, and we do not occupy but lead with wisdom and justice for all. We must ask ourselves, do we fight terrorism with might or do we Defeat terrorism with our minds, diplomatically and with intelligent-strategic ways. We must not lose sight of who and what we are and what we stand for -- and we stand for what is right in the world. Innately we know that occupying Iraq is not fighting terrorism but increasing it, causing the fires of hatred to flame even more. If we want to fight terrorism, just watch the old James Bond movies. We must be careful we do not flame it into a burning Inferno, hence causing World War III and the destruction of our earth. Hence the wisdom of this old-aged saying, "blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall inherit the earth."
