This Doesnt mean the US has won the war

Killing Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein won't mean the U.S. has won, because terrorism will continue and probably grow worse than ever. In fact, there's not only no definite ending to the war on terrorism, there's no definite enemy! First Osama was the evildoer, then Saddam was, since he had all these "weapons of mass destruction" that seem to have become invisible. Maybe the Iranians will morph into the enemy next, or the Syrians, or the North Koreans. After all, there are vacancies on the "Axis of Evil" now that Iraq has been occupied.

"It's very important to use this defining moment, I think, to rally the American people and to remind the American people that we are spending trillions of dollars, billions every week, on this open-ended longest war in American history and that we have economic priorities, economic recovery, job creation priorities here in our own country that this money can be used for," U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee said. We've got to remove our young men and women from harm's way, and we've got to really make sure that our presence in countries throughout the world does not create more danger and more anger toward the United States, which, you know, diminishes our national Regcure security.
