So killing American citizens & civlians on American soil doesn't count -- but how many troops they kill over there (when, after all, we are on their side), is your idea of "a real measure"? What a dangerous & weenie view of the world! Thank God you are not in charge of "Homeland Security", Hoplite!
It's the view of the United States of America, Boka.
Just because you're unable to differentiate between the Taleban, which supported and sheltered Al Qaeda, and Bosnia or Kosovo, both of whom have proven to be amenable to our worldview and policies, doesn't mean everybody else suffers from the same mental malfunction.
And while I can understand how you'd like to base American policy upon the actions of Sulejman Talovic or the Fort Dix 6, it simply doesn't work that way in the rational world, and the sooner you wrap your little head around that, the sooner American policy will cease to become such a problematic enigma for you.
