What we will never know

Reader comment on item: What If the United States Had Not Invaded Iraq

Submitted by Jane (United States), Sep 11, 2005 at 17:00

We know there are many Muslims who became more radical due to American military actions and the constant liberal media mania. What we won't ever know is how many would have been radicalized anyway by each successive, successful terror attack. Stomp on a Fire Ant mound and thousands of fierce biting ants will attack your aggressive foot, but trust me, they were not underground in tiny rocking chairs knitting when you attacked! They were eating the insulation on your wiring, killing your cattle and destroying your property.
