actullly yes they where, i belive 2 of the terrorists where Iraqi actully. As for Iran and Syria, the problem is that won't stop the terrorist, the only to stop terrorism is forced re education to remove islam from the middle eastern socity and when the older generation die off so will global terrorism for the most part. Sadly we can't do this of course. The only effective counter we have is to keep those terrorists occupided over there. As for Civilian Casualities BTA, we don't cause them, the terrorists do. Our rules of engagement state we may not attack a target in a crowd. The only dead civilians you ever get over there are the ones shooting AK's or walking to the gates of a US Camp or running to it and refusing to awknowlege to order to stop.
