The "War on Terror" is and will always be a failure. You cannot have a war on an idea. It will be never ending. We've already seen what's been done in with the war on terror in Afghanistan and Iraq. And sure, you could argue that we "got" Saddam Hussein, and that we killed Osama Bin Laden, but the war has been proven to be never ending. This is the world we live in now, a world paralyzed by fear. Troops on the ground will not fix that. I also believe many terrorists were created as a result of the war on terror. Terrorists are not always just born crazy Islamic extremists as many people may think. Sometimes a terrorist is created when their innocent family is killed by a drone strike. Or when their children in Iraq have urine poured on them by US troops (which has happened, by the way). War is not the answer... It will always just create more terrorists.
