    It's not a conflict against muslims. It's a conflict against terrorism, in whatever form that is.

    And the soaking up of capabilities isn't worth it or is it smart. We should agree on that conclusion.

    We fight terrorism with intelligence and clandestine spies, we fight a people with an army.

    If we legalize drugs, this problem could end itself.

    People are going to do drugs, that has been true since mankind has known of their existence.

    Why fight human nature, and needlessly waste our money incarcerating nonviolent drug offenders.

    An exception could be made for meth, and crack, and most non natural intoxicants.

    We would institute a test which could determine the ACTUAL harm/benefit of a drug, not this schedule 1 bullshit.

    Well exhausting resources is not preferable. But I think we have to spend, fight, and negotiate until we are in a position to move on safely. The surge in Iraq was largely successful, and now the violence there has decreased. Victory in Afghanistan is definitely possible, and we still have reserves if an emergency arises. We should always try political solutions before military solutions anyway. The fact is, we can't cover the world with our military alone. We have to use other means to disrupt and dismantle Al Qaeda.

    That should be how it is. Special ops and the CIA have more of the precision you need when dealing with these small and scattered groups. We know how the army completely blew capturing bin Laden in December 2001 in Tora Bora.
