I can perfectly understand that even for the only two nations that are currently defending freedom against terrorism (i.e., USA and UK), the task is getting worse and worse as time goes by.

This kind of "less of two evils" could end up in a return of the same killer regimen that iraq people had enjoyed so long. And all the effort made these last two years would go to the garbage can.
