    So, Tim - I responded to your request with the thoughts that came right off the top of my head. Now I get to ask you a question.

    What are your recommendations for "a better way" to fight the terrorists? What can you come up with that our military and intelligence services haven't used?

    I would ratchet up the pressure on violent people, significantly. The Idiot's biggest problem for the last 6 1/2 years is that he has pussy-footed too much.

    Political Correctness and Cultural Sensitivities do not concern me.

    I, like Obama has stated, would cross national borders, in pursuit of lawlessness. Peaceful people deserve peaceful surroundings. Even in Afghanistan or Iraq or anywhere else.

    The American way is fine. And there are many other fine ways. But violence is not acceptable, and retaliation needs to be over-the-top.

    It's only civilization if it's civilized.

    timkona, the 'American Way' as it's been pursued during the last few decades HAS been violence and violent retaliation, as evidenced by our readiness and willingness to engage in and support violence. Lighting fires promotes fire growth, at least as long as there's fuel to burn, not fire suppression. You can't rationally advocate others seek peaceful resolutions while we continue our violent ways. While we believe ourselves the sole arbiters of right and wrong, we remain a cause of the problem and no part of it's solution. One person's 'law and order' is another's tyranny. Until the situation can be viewed without bias, one cannot engage in reasoned analysis.

    The paths to a better situation are many and varied, but staying in our current rut (or 'ratcheting up' our current behavior) is not among them. We will have to change to promote a solution.

    Wake me up when you thought of one. Honestly, we're more likely able to cure the common cold and never have a sick day before we can be rid of terrorism.

    You perfectly exemplify the nature of the problem, Random. By encompassing the issue in terms of confrontational conflict whilst the solution lies elsewhere. It may be that the 'common cold' is bolstering our defenses against other, more deadly diseases. Were we to eradicate those organisms, we may succumb to others more easily. As well, by placing the onus of 'finding a solution' on others, your comments are revealed to be nothing more than snipes. Far be it from me to wake you from your slumber.

    Sure, bring on the SARS and Bird Flu. Cold-inflicted Americans are ready.

    Better yet, bring on the terrorists. I dare those cowards -- yeah, I'm talking to you, terrorists -- to blow up the King Kamehameha statue, Iolani Palace, and Aloha Towers. Dare Ya!

    Imagine the quandary local, anti-Bush libs would find themselves in if any icon of Hawaii was the target of a terror attack.

    Better an imaginary quandary than an actual quagmire.

    Terrorist is like a common cold or flu or pneumonia. We have to endure them to live another day. And those that do not endure, merely victims of natural selection.
