    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.
    Afghanistan harbored, aided and abetted those that did. Then they refused to surrender those that did. End of story, bro.

    What in the world made you think I was "devoted to" him? Do you think I have to like him to not revise history like you do?

    Most of the terrorist that conducted the attacks died in them, the masterminds were being harbored by Afghanistan....not Saudi Arabia. Should Britain attack us because a lot of IRA funding comes from Americans?

    That, however, is another argument. They did not, however, attack us. But as I said, and others have echoed, there is a long list that fits this description, and that means we have a lot of invading to do if this is going to be our rationale. And that list includes allies like SA and Pakistan. In fact, those two countries have a greater role than Afghanistan did by your standard.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No,it isn't. You suggested the Taliban attacked us. I corrected your factual error. Amending it to something else is a different argument.

    well, we did attack Iraq for supposedly having something to do with 9-11.

    No, what I said is that they are complicit in the attack, which they are. There is no separate argument, it is the same argument regardless of your excuses.

    Have you figured out what a felony is yet, or what the Code of Conduct is?
