What about a country which chooses not to take part in this battle? They're not helping us, but they're not hindering us. Or is their lack of positive action indicative that they are against us?
If a country chooses not to take part in this battle, the terrorists will eventually bring the battle to them. An extremely naive opinion is that if we don't bother them they won't bother us. The terrorists want to kill all non-Muslims, and even Muslims that don't support them. So unless a nation supports the terrorists, they will eventually effect that nation in someway.
