I am afraid that Pres. Bush has us trying to fight terrorism with one hand tied behind our backs. Islamic terrorism is based on fundamental Islamic ideology as contained in their so called "Holy Books." Therefore, this war will be with us until Muslim clerics and other leaders declare all seventh century ideology relating to Jihad to be null and void.

Unfortunately, as Muslims believe that the Koran is the actual word of Allah; this isn't likely to happen. Our next best chance is technological advances in alternative energy so that their oil is no longer a significant source of revenue.
