To be honest you are the first person I have ever come across(rightwinger/leftwinger oor middlewinger) that has stated unequivocally that Afghanistan attacked the United States.<quoted text>
An attack on the United States territory that kills 3000 people necessitates a full-scale invasion.
I don't expect the willfully ignorant party-line regurgitators to acknowledge the fact that Afghanistan attacked us on September 11, 2001. Hell, they lied about Al Qaeda not attacking us just recently.
But, you may have a point. The Japanese Navy attacked us on December 7, 1941. I don't recall Hirohito being involved in that attack. Tojo wasn't there, either. According to your logic, we had no reason to invade: Guadacanal, Tarawa, North Africa, Sicily, New Guinea, or Normandy,... or even Germany. Germany never attacked us.
The government of Afghanistan willingly allowed Al Qaeda to operate in Afghanistan, condoned their attack on the United States, and protected them as a country would their standing armed forces when we went after them. Afghanistan attacked us on September 11, 2001.
Anywhere the Wahhabists are, there will be "suicide" bombers. I think it is interesting that the only known survivor of a "suicide" bomb attack was coerced by the terrorists into driving a car toward an American convoy when the terrorists detonated a bomb he didn't even know was in the car. Coercion has been the tool of despots throughout the ages. The communists were notorious for this throughout the Cold War.
You remind me of Colonel Flagg on M*A*S*H*.
IMO you are insane.
