    I think you misunderstood his previous response to you. He was saying the reasons for WWII, the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War weren't "pitiful".

    pitiful reasons? Are you ****ing kidding. When the Japs attacked Pearl Harbor was that a pitiful reason to go to war? When al Qaeda attacked on 9-11 were we not justified in going to war in Afghanistan?

    yeah, we've had - what? 1.5 million folks rotate through Iraq alone? You could find 50 dudes willing to throw their medals in protest over the Coca-Cola Corporations' diabolical control over the country via their dominating the membership of the illuminati out of those numbers.

    Al Qaeda simply means "Muslim Brotherhood". If some Catholics commit an act of terrorism is it okay to route Catholics out in countries that didn't plan any attacks? Iraq and Afghanistan didn't do 9-11.

    It's literal translation is irrelvant, it is a terrorist organization. Not all Muslims (obviously) or even many Muslims are associated with it. Your point is irrelevant.

    ...Afghanistan didn't do 9-11.
    Afghanistan's Taliban-led government sheltered Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda, permitted them to use Afghanistan for planning operations, and refused to cooperate with the U.S. after 9/11 to bring Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda to justice. Afghanistan is a classic case of a "just" war.
