Although, the American people will not stand for another major event in the US especially a nuke or bio attack. If this were to occur I don't think our leaders will sit back and try to go after a handful of people. As in any war, I believe we will win when peace is achieved. Like I said, the terrorists are not rational and will not surrender until they are ball dead or captured.
What do you think the USA would do if (god forbid) an attack like 9/11 happened again?
As I have said before I think the US invasion of Afghanistan was correct morally and politically. If an attack of that scale happened in the UK and was planned on foreign soil I would expect us to go to a full scale war, not a 'war on terror'.
At least you acknowledge that the threat of terrorism will always exist.
