War on Terror ?

Please answer the following: If we are fighting a "War on Terror" then why isn't George H. W. Bush, a man who gave money, weapons and military training to Osama Bin Laden - murderer of 3,000 Americans, in jail? If we are fighting a "War on Terror" then why isn't Dick Cheney, the man who gave Saddam Hussein those weapons of mass destruction that he used on his own people, in prison with George H.W. Bush? You have chosen Iraq as the battleground for your war on terror. Why Iraq over El Salvador or Venezuela or even Mexico, places where terrorist organizations carry out kidnappings and murders on a weekly basis? Since you have chosen to fight your "war on terror" in Iraq, how does this impede terrorist organizations such as the Tamil Tigers, Shining Path, the Basque Fatherland, the KKK, Hamas, and the IRA from committing terrorist acts in our country, their own countries and elsewhere?If fighting your "war on terror" in Iraq, will not stop these other terrorist groups from terrorist acts outside Iraq, then why are we in Iraq? If fighting your "war on terror" in Iraq will not stop these other terrorist groups from terrorist acts outside Iraq, are you going to ask these groups to move to Iraq so you can fight them? How will you get them to go to Iraq if they refuse? How does fighting your "war on terror" in Iraq impede homegrown American terrorists such as Eric Rudolph, Timothy McVeigh, the Unabomber, and the guys who put Anthrax in our mail? If your "war on terror" has absolutely no effect at all on all these other terrorist groups and individual terrorists, than isn't your "war on terror" a bit of a joke? Isn't it wrong to expect our troops to sacrifice their lives for your joke of a "war on terror"?

Crises abundant
the world over

Nero fiddles
in DC
lining pockets

while those
whose pockets
are empty

suffer.

Intolerance
greed and
self-interest
masquerade as

success;

while those
who attempt
to stay them
are pilloried

as liberals
and traitors.

The terrorists
are not just
overseas; they
abide in every
capital,

on Sunday morning
television,
in the pulpits,
and the
publishing houses.

My Yuletime
prayer that
"Karma"
(or the 3 fold law)

finds them
and changes their
cries adding

"Give" to
the constant
"More"

seems but a
match
struck in the

darkness.
