PS: Bush started the war and not on bin Laden, but on the government of Afghanistan, being run by the Taliban.

bin Laden was not part of the Afghan government, shug.

Obviously, you need to stop taking meds or at least follow the instructions on the side of the bottle.

The Taliban was given the opportunity to surrender bin laden, instead they chose to protect him. It's too bad the world didn't do the same with hitler until it was too late.

I guess you would have preferred the US go after the pilots of the planes that bombed Hawaii, not the Japanese government.

I cannot help you think, dingus.

The Afghans did not have bin Laden to surrender and was under no obligation to cough him up even if they had had him.

What if the Afghans had demanded that the US surrender George Bush for war crimes?

HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Just who do you think armed Bin Laden to start with? Here's a clue for you mentally challenged teabaggers. Your hero.. Ronnie Raygun. During the Soviet Afghan war, the CIA was arming the mujahideen. Now you know the origin of al-Queda.

And your hero is arming the Muslim brotherhood. Wow. current events have no meaning do they. We have a chance to stop the slaughter of Christians, yet people like you continue to support Odumbo's BS. So, did you want the Syrian strike your messiah so pushed for?

Russia and Germany were allies at the beginning of WWII.

I cannot help you did not make it through middle school where they most probably covered WWII, or that you have never done any independent reading on WWII on your own.

It helps explain why you were not away that the US attacked the Afghan goverment, not the other way around.

PS: FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOD stamps.

Nope.
