Is the War on Terror Unwinnable?

A large group on the left are dismissed for harboring thoughts that the War on Terror is an Unwinnable war-- or at least an Ideological war likely to endure for decades, and similar in kind to the Cold war. It seems that Bush is moderating his hard stance in an attempt to grab undecided voters with this admission:

When asked “Can we win?” the war on terror, Bush said, “I don’t think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that the — those who use terror as a tool are — less acceptable in parts of the world.”

Now, this seems like a reasonable statement; though, imagine if it were Howard Dean or John Kerry who made that statement: The press would eat them alive. Not unlike when, after the capture of Saddam Hussein, Dean said that America was not safer. The press had a field day; and, only months later, Najaf, Fallujah, Baghdad and the rest of Iraq lite up in violent anti-occupation clashes. Apparently, it seems, Iraq wasn't safer after Saddam's capture.

So Bush realizes that the War on Terror may be Unwinnable in the near term. Isn't that what everyone else has been saying for the last two years? And were or were they not being labeled unpatriotic for such a statement? Bush shows up to the party late and the media gives him a free ride: Wow!

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com

I don't know if you've noticed, but the competition amongst resell rights providers has become dog eat dog.

It's a huge market, but you end up competing against the big dogs every time.

The solution, in my opinion, is in private label and source code rights.

Simply put, these are the groundwork for creating your own products and services which you are then the sole owner of.

With private labels you get to brand your own identity and all the sudden you are no longer competing with hundreds or even thousands of people to sell the same old products.

If you want to learn more about how to put yourself ahead of the pack with ease then check out this great provider...
