We Have to Fight Them Over There....

so that we don't have to fight them here. I've heard a few of my friends repeat this mantra, without realizing that Presidents always say this before war. I've also heard people say that once we leave Iraq, all the terrorists will come here, but this isn't the lesson that history has taught us.

According to Pat Buchanan's recent article,
"Between 1982 and 1986, there were 41 suicide-bomb attacks on U.S., French, and Israeli targets in Lebanon. When U.S. and French troops withdrew and Israel pulled back to a six-mile buffer zone, suicide-bombings virtually ceased. When the Israelis left Lebanon, the Lebanese suicide-bombers did not follow them to Tel Aviv."

Furthermore, "Bush's cure for terrorism is a cause of the epidemic. The doctor is spreading the disease. The longer we stay in Iraq, the greater the number of suicide attacks we can expect. The sooner we get our troops out, the sooner terrorism over there and over here will end. So Pape says the data proves. This is the precise opposite of what George Bush argues and believes."
