Reader comment on item: Hugging Iraq's Leaders
in response to reader comment: For Mr. Pipes: A lost cause and a lesson [unfortunately not] learned

Submitted by Pro-Israeli Democrat, May 9, 2006 at 14:15It certainly has not led to a reduction in global terrorism, and in fact, it is now a battlefield for terrorist groups and their state sponsers [Iran, Syria, and especially Saudi Arabia] to fight Western "infidels".

If Iraq is a venue which attracts global terrorists and causes them to 'break cover' then that is just fine as far as I'm concerned. If their ranks are spread so thin then it can only minimise the impact of their operations in civilised countries. And makes it easier to 'take them out'. If the greatest collateral damage happens to be people who share their faith then so be it.
