Regardless of whether he is currently dead or not, the Taliban supported him, and it is quite likely they are supporting living terrorists who want to attack our country. --------------------
Bin Laden supported the Taliban when they ran Russia out of their country, and thus was existing in Afghan at the time 9/11 attacks were planned. But that was over 8 years ago!! We ran Al Qaeda OUT OF THERE ALREADY!! The fact the Taliban do not like us and the people in Afghan want us to leave is not justification for escalating a war against those people. How many of those people joining up to fight against us are even Taliban?
There are a lot of Arabs who do not like the US and support terrorists. (They want our troops and our puppet government to leave their country too.) And they happen to be scattered across the whole globe, more so in Saudi than anywhere else.
We have an idiot in charge who is not really even in charge. Remember the Republican who warned to be leary of the military industrial complex?
