War on Terror Creates More Terrorists?

I’m passing on here a post I came across on Sovereign Life Freedom Blog. I can’t help feeling the writer makes some valid points. What do you think?

“One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. And if that is true, then it’s clear our political leaders are “insane”.

After 9/11 the USA declared a “war on terror” – something that was a bogus concept right from the start, because you cannot have a war on a “tactic” of war. For that’s what terrorism is, a tactic of war.

But never mind the semantics, our leaders were oblivious to the sheer impossibility of winning such a war – then and now.

The big news in Turkey, meanwhile, is that the 49 hostages taken from the Turkish Consulate by ISID forces when they captured the Iraq city of Mosul have been released after more than three months of captivity. International news media seem to be implying that the whole thing was a set-up by the Turkish Government! Who knows? If so, it was a remarkably well-organised hoax. I wonder where they hid those 49 people for all that time? In the end, whatever the Turkish Government does to keep out of that ill-advised war is ok with me.
