For discussion purposes SeniorsCAN call upon the United States and Congress to declare the war on terror “ OVER.”
Osama Bin Ladin has been killed… The war is over.
We will never be able to kill all of his followers. For every one we do kill, renewed hatred of the U.S. increases as new leaderships emerge.
The killing of Al-Qaeda members or associates is not justified by their assumed connection to 9-11, or warranted by a recognized eminent threat to our national security.
The cost of this “WAR” to date has been a vast expenditure of our capital and resources not only in dollars, but also in lives lost or maimed. To continue making large expenditures, and putting our troops in harm’s way or putting civilians at risk is disproportionate to other needs both military and domestic.
