And I'm sorry, but England, Germany, and the United States do not knowingly harbor terrorists and openly allow them to operate freely in their country. I understand the premise that Al Queda is everywhere, but you can't make that particular analogy in my opinion.
My point ST, is that it's one thing to attack the terrorists where they are (and where we'd known they were for 15 years at that point).

It's another thing entirely to invade a country, take over the capital and occupy it, in the name of fighting terrorism.

You really don't think so? It's cool if you don't.
