C'mon, it's not that hard to figure out....
Please explain what you mean.....

If we are not on foreign soil how will americans die? If civilians leave the country they know they are at risk. Each civilian that leaves the country cannot expect to have a Military body guard from the US.

Our forces are fighting in the Middle East.

The deaths are occuring in the Middle East.


Now, if we were to pull all of our troops back into the US to fight terrorists, where would the deaths occur??

Yup, right here. Then you would really be screaming that we haven't done enough to protect our borders.

Get this straight- these groups don't like us, never have. If we weren't fighting them over there, we would be fighting them here. (In fact, that is exactly what was happening before we sent troops overseas) Our campaign in Iraq has drawn fanatics from all over the Middle East to engage our troops in battle over there. If they couldn't fight us there, you had better believe they would find a place where they could kill Americans. I would rather see them blow themselves to smithereens over there against personel that is train for it, than to see them do it in a crowded stadium here.

I actually agree with you and disagree with you at the same time. It is actually nice to debate with someone who can do it without calling names and insulting.

I agree with you because these groups dont like us and they never will. But I disagree that our presence there is going to prevent terrorist attacks here. If they want to attack us they will and I am sure another large attack will happen in the near future. Hopefully not but these terrorist are loons and they already live among us. If anything at all we are creating more terrorists by the civilian casualties caused over there by friendly fire and we are pissing off the terrorists hate us already.

Time will be the only way we will ever know and I hope I am wrong.

Mike, hopefully you are wrong on the creating more terrorists. Not sure that I agree that the casualties we are inflicting would do so. Aren't most of the civilan casualties caused by the terrorists with the explosives they are planting? As for the terrorists, doubt we could piss them off anymore than they already are.
