Interesting points all, but a bit simplistic perhaps? The attacks on the USS Cole, Saudi Barracks, World Trade Center One, embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, etc. all occured BEFORE our assaults on Iraq and Afghanistan. Therefore, we may reasonably conclude that the hatred and war on the United States was underway for a decade before we chose to respond forcefully.

Would withdrawing all US forces to American territory prevent more attacks or end the hostility to us?

Is there in fact any accomodation that can be made with Islamic Fundamentalism that would allow for peaceful coexistence?

Or are we in fact engaged in a struggle with an enemy who will settle for nothing less than the cessation of our existence as nations or cultures?

Are you crediting the Islamic Jihadist Movement, of which Al Queda is just a part, with a rational worldview and goals that could be achieved through peaceful means?

How many societies in history have been protected by just "minding their own business"?

This is a war whether we choose to admit it or not.
