I wrote a post but I closed it before I posted it.
The war is not over oil or money, but yes it is involved it drives the economy of every country and our lives. Biggest single cause we were attacked is our support of Israel which the Al Queda wants to see all the Children of Israel dead. It goes back to Abraham in the Old Testament so what are we going to do to stop that.
The war is over a terrorist attack. The Japanese learned they woke a sleeping giant and it awoke again on the next attack on American soil. We couldn't wait like cowards for them to leave us alone. We had to retaliate and make them go find their caves so we can drop them a present from the sky. It isn't over until we have smashed their camps and destroyed their weapons and communications. I am all for getting our troops home but we have to do it responsibly and not just a mass withdrawal like a whipped puppy running home.
I don't want to rewrite what I was going to post. It would completely hijack the thread and probably already have. Sorry.
