"Fighting Them There So We Don't Have To Fight Them Here"

Anon has been quite erudite commenting on some of my posts. Here's one point I thought worth elevating to the top page. Regarding the use of all means to fight the "Global War on Terror:"
Too bad no one knows the location of the GWOT.
And here's another regarding the continuous sentiment from the W, Rove and Co that if we "fight them there, then we won't have to fight them here:"
Logic, our Iraq involvement's strong suit.

On the link:
THE PRESIDENT: This is a global war on terror. I repeat what our major general said -- or leading general said in the region. He said, "If we withdraw before the job is done, the enemy will follow us here." I strongly agree with that. And if you believe that the job of the federal government is to secure this country, it's really important for you to understand that success in Iraq is part of securing the country.
To belabor the obvious, What's stopping the terrorists from coming here now? If they going to follow us home when we leave Iraq, why don't they leave Iraq now to come here? We couldn't stop the foreign terrorists from entering Iraq, how would we stop them from leaving?

Seems to me that if we withdraw now, then there will be fewer terrorists created in response to our bungling. But hey...what do I know?
