I believe that the only way that we will beat 'em is with a good ol' ground invasion WW II style. The lead troops take ground, liberate innocents, and move on while leaving the taken ground to rear troops. No more of this Vietnam Bullshit fighting where you take ground and move on and leave allowing the enemy reinhabit the ground that you just took and left. It will take a bunch of troops but it's the only way of assuring that bin Laden and his friends don't come back and the only way to free the innocent victims of a terrorist reign. England and Russia fought a Gurilla war and lost because they moved on to new territory just like we did in VN. Send in 500,000 well armed American troops and do the job right once and for all.
