  •  Aggression is fueling more terrorism (0+ / 0-)

    When people bury their own families who were victims of American aggression, more terrorists are being created. The violence is not deterring anyone.

    Further, the aggression and escalation is weakening our military capabilities. Our military personnel suffer from fatigue. Our populace is no longer willing to endure the loss of person or possession. The potential for being shipped off to fight in wars that have no defined goals or purpose are stunting recruitment.

    The way to prevent additional attack is through intelligence, domestic security, and increased foreign aid.

    •  If we did not meddle (0+ / 0-)

      in the affairs of these people, they would not be pissed at us. The extremists will always hate those who do not agree with them, but they'd find little support among the less radical if we weren't accidentally killing civilians with drone missiles.

      The way to prevent attacks is to mind our own business.
