I will answer your question.<quoted text>
You're the president.
What do you do? Do you:
1) Surrender to the muslim jihad? or;
2) Do the Bill Clinton thing and lob a few cruise missiles into their general direction? or;
3) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and somehow you expect a different result? or;
4) You do something different.
If you choose 4) You do something different, what do you do?
... well, dumbass?
Upon learning who was responsible, I would locate & launch strikes against them
I would not invade a country (Afghanistan) & be stuck nation building. Afghanistan had little military strength. We should have ignored it unless attacked.
I certainly would never call Bin Laden irrelevant, abandon Afghanistan to go into an oil war.
