Do US Air Attacks Increase Terrorism?

The administration of George Bush from day one of its existence has probably done more to increase terrorism in the world than any government body on this planet. Wajid Shamsul Hasan, Pakistan’s high commissioner in the United Kingdom, warned that continued American air strikes into Pakistan are having the exact opposite result from their intention. “American trigger-happy actions will radicalize young Muslims,” he said, and most probably encourage the growth of radical groups which inevitably will result in terror attacks in the UK. Meanwhile, in Pakistan, President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani, vowed to defend their sovereignty against American incursions into their country. both leaders have agreed that their nation’s territorial integrity must be protected.

Sources close to the Pakistan Daily Times said “the top leaders had been uneasy with the reported US plan to go after targets in the tribal Areas despite Pakistan’s protests. They said Gilani asked Zardari to press the UK to influence the US to stop the attacks.” Zardari will convey to Prime Minister Brown his nation’s anger at what the Bush administration is doing in his nation.

Perhaps, it is time for Senator Barack Obama to inform the American people that Bush’s war on terror is creating terrorism, not fighting it.
