Simple question... Can we win the War on Terror. My feeling is no. You can't fight ideology from without only from within. A War on Terror is like a War on Clouds. In order to win you would have to destroy all things that create vapor clouds. So, in order to win a War on Terror you would have to kill everyone that hates and has violent intent toward the US. How can this be done?

I think it's the same idea as having laws.  Obviously lawbreakers are not going to follow laws just because they are laws.  You have to make the punishment harsh enough to deter the lawbreakers.  Now obviously you are not going to get EVERYONE to follow the law regardless of the punishment, but if you can get enough to do it, then you avoid total and utter chaos.  By the same token, many terrorists are not going to give a rat's patootie about what consequence they have to face, but if you get enough of them to think twice, you can keep it somewhat in check.  For those of you who think that it is impossible to get a terrorist to be concerned with his own life, you ever notice that it's never the Osamas that are strapping bombs to themselves and blowing themselves up (regardless of what they preach to the masses)?  If you mean, can we ever stop terrorism completely... no, it will never happen.  Neither by force or by "negotiation".  Since we know negotiation won't make any difference, we might as well make it as hard for them to kill innocents as possible.

But how do we put laws into effect and enforce them in other countries? Your idea is not sound.

We aren't enforcing them in other countries.  We are letting terrorists around the world know that they can't come into our country and do whatever they want and then go back and hide in their country.  What would your suggestion be.  Laugh it off and say "Good one, you got us"?

In world war one when we were fighting in the middle east there was something that helped us to win there. It was fairly simple we turned their religious beliefes on them by using pig fat as a bullit lube. In their religion swine are unclean. This caused them to stop fighting knowing that they could be killed by something that was unclean. Keeping them out of heaven..
