If the U.S had, had a smarter President, and leaders with common sense? If the U.S. didn't have all of these contractors who make a whole lot of money making war? If the U.S. had gotten into Afghanistan with the small force that would have been necessary to knock down and take out a regime, that supported the terrorists, who knock down the Twin Towers on 911? If the U.S. had supported the Northern Alliance, which was fighting the Taliban, and which. with allied support, routed the Taliban from power in a month's time? If Bush and company hadn't tried to fix a country? That it has now really broken? Bush wouldn't have so dishonored America. Bush and and now Mr. Obama wouldn't have so much innocent blood on their hands. And it sickening me to say that it is a whole lot of innocent blood. American soldiers are dead, who should not be dead. American coffers have been emptied of treasure that has been misspent and ill- spent
Yes, we had every right to go after Al Queda in Afghanistan. We had every right to fight the Taliban regime. We had an ally on the ground who were fighting Bin Laden Mullah Omar and the Taliban, but arrogance and rank stupidity led Bush and his gang of neo-cons, to turn what should have been a quick operation for justice into an injustice, and into a long involvement in hell.
