    Your own words here speak to the esteem issue. I have besmirched no one. And I explained where it came in at and why.



    What post number did I claim the taliban attacked us? if you want to claim that you are being "factually correct", perhaps you shouldn't be dishonest about what other posters say.
    You didn't, Mac did. You jumped in. You do that a lot, and then don't know the context.

    However responsive it's not official. It is not the PR wing of "the military". It's a private, commercial organization seeking a military audience.

    I didn't claim they attacked us, I stated that they are complicit in the attacks. They are.

    I admit Mac this is a confusing statement, but if you speak to the people sharing responsibility with the Taliban for the 9/11 attacks, you are saying the Taliban were responsible for 9/11.

    But if you want to amend your statement that AQ people were in the country, with training camps, that the Taliban neither ran nor hindered, I'll accept that.

    This ideal doesn't just apply when it's convenient. If a people are responsible for what happens to their country, they are also responsible for what it does. Do you care to amend your statement?

    Btw, do you understand the concept of conspiracy in a criminal sense? What about aiding and abetting?

    What I took issue with was that Afghanistan is responsible for 9/11.

    And no, I do not care to amend my statement. We have to stop thinking we control other countries. If Afghanistan attacked us, we'd be proper to defended ourselves, and that would involved the people. But to in and tell them what they should do or have is simply wrong. Afghanistan is not our country. Neither is Iraq. Anything they do short of an act of aggression would not warrant our invading.

    This Karzai?

    President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan said this weekend that his country would support Pakistan if it ever went to war with the United States.

    That's who you are devoted to?

    "agreeing with you" is the farthest thing from "listening or looking" objectivley.
    Does that mean you think we should have invaded Saudi Arabia, since that's where most of the terrorists of 9/11 came from?
