The US has a long history of making sure their efforts always end up being the biggest, longest or brashest. Well they have managed to do it again.
Nearly 5 years on from the (supposed) terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the US has just reached a milestone in their War on Terror. The 3rd of September marked the point that the US death toll from the War on Terror has surpassed the death toll from September 11. Of course this death toll includes the US deaths in Iraq only because the US Government says the invasion of Iraq was for terrorist reasons, even though it has now been shown to be false.
One has to ask, if the US people were given the choice to seek revenge on real and supposed enemies in a double-or-nothing death toll deal, would they have taken it?
