Wasn’t the war on Iraq supposed to diminish world terrorism?

I wish politicians had a better grasp of why terrorist attacks occur. I have been unable to justify the war on Iraq. I don’t think our troops should be there and now I fear that Blair, Bush and Co will insist that they remain in Iraq just so the “terrorists don’t win”.

(This isn’t a particularly eloquent entry but I prefer to have time to reflect before saying much.)

Alcamus made some good comments.
