Ok no offense but I laughed so hard!
You are basicly saying we should let them come to us kill us and hope that it isnt yourself that gets blow up.
I don't know about you but I would rather be fighing on their territory killing them and keeping them off american soil.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
