I raise the point of fighting al qaeda in Afghanistan, as it should have been our main and only focus. The administration came out saying Bin Laden was responsible, but behind closed doors were still trying to find a way to pin it to Saddam. I think its peculiar that, we were attacked on 9/11 by Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Yet 6 Years later we are occupying Iraq, Saddam is dead, and Bin Laden is still making anniversary videos of when he killed 3000 Americans. The people around Bush (i.e. Rumsfeld, Cheyney, Wolfowitz, and Libby - the whole neocon group) had been ready and waiting for a 2nd oppurtunity in Iraq.Originally Posted by Squall7
I still don't understand why the American people and the Congress haven't done more/aren't as pissed off about all of this. The "democracy" here is an awful system that deflates any person's willingness or desire to get involved. People are either too pessimistic to feel that anything will ever change, or are so blinded by nationalism and pride that they are too stupid to realize they are being lied to and have been lied to on a regular basis for the majority of this president's term.
