The level of ignorance is apalling from the people that don't understand the war in Iraq. The war in Iraq was not fought in retaliation for 9/11 (that was Afghanistan), the war in Iraq is being fought to prevent the NEXT 9/11. And you know what, it WORKED. There haven't been any more attacks on the US since 9/11.
Serious question. Who do you want fighting the war on Terror/Islam? Unarmed civilians on the streets of New York City? Or fully armed, well trained, well equipped soldiers in Iraq? THERE is your answer.
The war is upon us, brought to us by 8 years of neglect under Clinton that allowed Osama bin Laden to rise to power. Osama is dead and gone now. Iraq was the next threat to us and they have been dealt with.
Maybe you run and hide from your fights, but most American's don't.
how about we fight Al Qaeda in Afghanistan where their HQ is located? Al Queda wasn't in Iraq until after GW invaded the country. that old bull chit line, lets fight them in Iraq instead of our street is as old as McCain. Try something new. Its time for a CHANGE!
The 1993 World Trade Center bombing occurred on February 26, 1993. Eight years later Al Qaeda attacked the WTC again. Al Qaeda is in no rush.
