The Plot WAS "hatched" by Al Qaida, which WAS headquartered, fostered, sheltered IN Afghanistan ... ... In Fact ObL ordered a smaller Attack than had been originally planned ...

The Idea that OUR Response OUGHT to have been just a *Shrug*and*a*Wink* strikes me as markedly irresponsible ...

jd23 says


Anymore than that the right-wing papist fundamentalists (aka Santorum) have a right to be harbored in the US.


Seems that the US does and has harbored numerous war criminals: does that mean that the US should be attacked by whomever?  You see, this silliness that you kill tens of thousands of innocent civilians because someone you disliked happened to hang his/her hat in another country is ridiculous.  The truth is that Saudis hijacked the 9/11 planes and that they were financed and harbored by Saudi royalty residing in the US who flew out on 9/12 courtesy of the Bush admin.


If US troops could think they'd remember how they were used in a useless war in Vietnam and tell everyone they knew to avoid being so used in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Central Am., etc. (other nations which have also not attacked the US, but which international corporations wish to steal resources from).




There was never any proof that the plot was hatched in Afghanistan.  Most of the Saudis had gathered and plotted in Germany, and no one thought of attacking Germany.  There IS proof that Saudi royalty living in the US had contact with the hijackers and financed their flight training.

Not just 9/11 was hatched by an organization headquarted in Afghanistan.  Countless terror strikes were held BEFORE 9/11 and not a few after.  Terror strikes around the globe. 



Is it any wonder the international community jointly decided Afghanistan had to be invaded?

Indeed ... The Attacks on 9-11-2001 were "the last Straw" ...

Where was that investigation and trial held?  The verdict was?


People who believe things just because Bush said so are quite foolish.

You DON'T accept The FACT that on 9-11-2001 we were attacked and about 3,000 innocent People were murdered ... ???

Hmmm, Teihard, give it up.  The OP was about how our troops have not "learned," but I think it has been more than adequately demonstrated that there are many, many others who have NOT learned, and it is NOT our troops with the learning difficulties...
