Updates on the war on terror,

In the wake of the terror in Spain, there is alot of rethinking going on as to why we are fighting and how it is going.

Excellent Op Ed on the War on terror...: "Election-year spin and shrill name-calling won't change the reality that global terrorism still threatens America. Bush realizes that the threat cannot, as Sen. John Kerry suggests, chiefly be handled by 'intelligence and law enforcement.'"

Meanwhile, a Huge Car Bomb Found Near U.S. Consulate in Pakistan: "A van packed with explosives was found outside the U.S. consulate in the Pakistani city of Karachi on Monday, two days before Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites) visits the country.
Mark Steyn notes that These guys want to kill us anyway : "'THE bombs dropped on Baghdad exploded in Madrid!' declared one 'peace' protester in Spain. Or as Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty put it, somewhat less vividly: 'If this turns out to be Islamic extremists . . . it is more likely to be linked to the position that Spain and other allies took on issues such as Iraq.'"

And in Iraq, : " Bombs in Baghdad killed four U.S. soldiers, the army said Sunday, bringing to nine the number of troops killed in Iraq (news - web sites) in the last four days by explosives planted by guerrillas to target American patrols. "
