Yeah, that's what I meant. With the current approach to the words "Terror" and "Terroists", it will be impossible to defeat one organisation, let alone more than a few cells of that organisation.
The only way to get rid of terroism, as far as I know, is to enlighten people. Let them know that the Koran does not promises 50-odd virgins, a permanent space in heaven etc., but that it preaches peace and tolerance towards other religions. Only when their religion is attacked, and only then, does the Koran preaches that a true muslim should defend himself. And then, only against the agressor. By attacking 2 dominantly muslim countries, it has really given the bad mullah's some weight behind their words, when they say that the US is out to wipe Islam off the face of the earth.
Yeah, finding OBL
won't help much, but it will send a symbolic message to his followers. That is, of course, only the case if the US will give him a free and fair trial. Not that I think they won't, but just listening to a few right-wingers in here makes me think that that won't be the case. I mean, there's no thing to stop Dubya's people from inventing a new definition of a person, that will place him outside any treaties etc. Just like the guys who are still at Gitmo.
