    9-11. We had stopped meddling in the affairs of Afghanistan, we pulled out right after the Soviets did. Look what happened. Hasn't your isolationist mentality been priven wrong time and again?
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    A.Q. settled in Afghanistan because the Taliban was willing to turn a dead-eye to their operations. The affair that turned A.Q. against the West actually occurred in Saudi Arabia, and continued into Somalia (where CIA hunted down Bin Laden). We were attacked because we meddled into affairs we should not have meddled in. True, it was not Afghanistan. Afghanistan, once again, acts as the battlefield for fighting Elephants.
