you analysis is lacking because it compares WWII to this "war on Terror" In WWII we were fighting against nation states one of which was in the process of genocide. Yes, i know Husssein technically commited genocide against the Kurds, but to waitover a decade to act on that is plain pretext. WMD? Ha! I wont even address that bs.
Consder this, everythign this admin has said has proved to be false from global warming to mission accomplished to WMD to the insurgency is in its last throes.
