What's the difference between the War on Terror and The War in Iraq? Here's an interesting statement:
When America takes a single step backwards in the face of terrorism overseas, it brings the terrorists 50 steps closer to our own shores.Now, this statement is supposedly paraphrased from the 9/11 commission report. Just wondering, why 50 and not, say, 51 or 49? And excuse me for being slow on the uptake as I have not read the full report, but don't we know for sure that there are terrorist sleeper cells already on our shores (remember Lodi California in the news recently, not to mention the garden variety nut jobs like Tim McVeigh)? So, why is it the whitehouse press staffer bringing this up?
Another good question would be do you think the Attack on Iraq was a step forward or a step backward?
