Jihad for Jesus: Faith-Based Imperialism: "If you live by the sword, you die by the sword. (Matthew 26:52) America does not have a terrorism problem because it is free and pure and good. Contrary to neocon spin, we did not go to bed on September 10, 2001 innocently minding our own business.
When you have troops in 130 countries around the world, you will inevitably have a few people hacked off at you. Because those who are hacked off at us lack the wherewithal to conquer us, they settle for making our lives miserable. Terror is a tactic dating back to the French Revolution. To think you can end terror by means of military adventurism is equivalent to thinking you can teach whales to tap dance.
Indeed, Pat Buchanan has pointed out that terror ends when foreign occupiers go home.
“The dynamiting of the King David Hotel convinced the British to accelerate their departure from Palestine. Zionist terror ended. Mau Mau terror ended when the Brits left Kenya. When De Gaulle cut Algeria loose, FLN terror ended. When Reagan withdrew his Marines from Beirut, anti-American terror ended in Lebanon.
“Lesson? The price of empire is terror. The price of occupation is terror. The price of interventionism is terror.”"
