I wish I had more duct tape...

While Blogger was having it's fits, I came across an article called The Problem with the 'Terror' Thingy, By Warren Whipple. I reminded myself of where the article was located so I could post it when Blogger was acting better. Due to the continuation of the bleating of "Terror" and "Terrorists" from our government, I felt this article kind of placed "Terror" where it belonged.
...The incident that occurred on September 11, 2001 was, straight up, by definition, a strategic behind-the-lines guerilla attack by a group that had declared war on us. It was not random. It was a carefully planned assault on two strategic targets. It was an act of war.

The World Trade Center is exactly what it says it is. It is where we manipulate their economy in the Middle East. It was a strategic target that was taken out for a reason. They don't like the way that we screw with their economy...

...The response, invading Afghanistan, was as appropriate as any response could be against an ephemeral foe. It does seem that the headquarters of the group was there at the time, so the government of that country certainly needed to be destroyed. That's the American way. Who's going to miss the Taliban anyway?

But then we found out that most of the people involved in the attack were actually from Saudi Arabia, so immediately we flew into the next phase of our counter-attack and invaded..and here's where I keep getting confused...
