Well, I can tell you what you don't do!<quoted text>
Of those 5,000, a little over 4,000 were killed in Iraq.
I'll just skip over the party line propaganda bullshit "so he could award his friends and cronies billions in no bid government contracts" and get right to the point:
It's 9/12. You are the president. What do you do? Do you:
A) Surrender to the Arab terrorists? or
B) Do the usual Bill Clinton response and lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction? or
C) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and some-fucking-how you expect to achieve a different result? or
D) You do it differently to achieve a different result than the Soviets experienced?
If you can think of another option, please begin your response with a description of that option, and include some justification.
You don't do business with an international terrorist!
You don't ignore all the warnings of an appending attack!
You don't fly the family of the suspected terrorist out of the country!
You don't invade the borders of a sovereign nation that had nothing to do with 9/11!
You don't lie to the nation about Iraq & Al Qaeda in collaboration to pull of 9/11, all so you can invade a country@take over their oil supply! You don't wait almost 2yrs to finally go after the self admitted terrorist after you've already dropped the ball the 1st time & ignored all the warnings from the CIA & FBI, not to mention the previous regimes sect of defense!
You don't go off half cocked to war without strategizing & finding a way to budget the war.!
You don't fight 2 different wars at the same time on unfamiliar terrain!
The question isn't what would you do. What you should worry about is, what we shouldn't have done!
