on my site you said we need to find another way. I replied. There is some other stuff in there too that we were talking about, but in reference to terrorism, here is my personal little solution (I dont have a multi-million dollar staff to reality check this one though):

My personal "other way", would be to take the money we are duming into Iraq right now (we would leave an Embassy there, and get out, let them fall upon themselves). We would develop a viable alternative fuel source, subsidize the auto industry to produce the cars at low cost for Americans, and thus cut our oil dependancy.

With out being center stage of the most stratigic resource in the world... The Middle-East gets ignored. With nothing else to finance them, the leaders (true bankers behind terrorism) would fall, and we would be done with Islamic Zealots suddently well funded around the world.
