    We prevented that greater war.
    I am so proud we prevented an if based on actions that may have occured because of a previous if, as was believed...

    You know, actually, we support terrorist groups by buying Saudi oil, which in turn is used to fund the terrorists that attack us.

    One of them, Atta, was Egyptian. All the others Saudi. Why did we never bomb Saudi Arabia?

    Saudi's were chosen for the "Planes Operation" in order to drive a wedge between the U.S. and the Saudi's, after all that was one of OBL's main objectives, divide and conquer.

    You are correct.

    In 1979 the Saudi gov't was allowed, by the religious leadership, to use gunfire in the Grand Mosque to quell a hostage situation. But this permission was granted in exchange for funding terrorism.

    Armies are there to protect THEIR country, not someone elses.

    We now sacrifice our soldiers for Israel's security? Thats nice, how many soldiers have they offered for Iraq and Aghanistan for the past 5 years again??

    We did not go into WWII until 1941, and no presence in Europe or the Pacific until 1942. To suggest we went right in to protect others is quite misleading. We were basically dragged into the war, and the U.S. declared war on the axis of evil, once it was discovered that Hitler had urged Mexico to join him and attack the U.S., just as Japan had.
