I'll try to not be political. I don't know exactly how the word "war" is being used. I do know what halfway means.
It seems to me, George W. Bush (the Presidential Library is an oxymoron) waited too long to take action. There were many Arabs on a plane to America, some of them trained to be terrorists by us, who recieved such excellent care, I wonder if I should join them. I think the Middle East War was fought "Halfway".
The war was illegal, protracted, and accomplished little other than garnishing a new generation of suicide bombers.
There was not one Firefighter, Police Officer, Medic, who wouldn't have given their left nut to get at the perpetrators.
As it's been shown, small units of Special Forces seem to get the job done-
at the onset of the bombings, (which I predicted, along with the Antrax). No, I'm not special, and frankly the CDC thought I wasn't special either, (loon, crackpot, out of work writer) - yep. they didn't travel and download .
And since they didn't have enough reverb on the one hangup), they hung up twice just to make sure
I thought that if we could find Osama, only special ops could get near enough to
actually peg the guy...
So, in my opinion,George W Bush waged an illegal war- not asking .what we the public wanted done,
