You mentioned 9/11. I wonder what makes you think this country will be safe from something like that or even worse, if it allows equally depraved jihadists, who want us all dead, to set up another safe haven even better than the one they had fifteen years ago in Afghanistan. Apparently you are content to let these bastards remain there unmolested, with tons of money at their disposal, and hatch all the mass murder plots they please, at their leisure, against us and God knows who else.

Bush, May 5, 2003: Al Qaeda is on the run. That group of terrorists who attacked our country is slowly, but surely being decimated. Right now, about half of all the top al Qaeda operatives are either jailed or dead. In either case, they’re not a problem anymore.

"It's always reassuring to find you've made the right enemies." -- William J. Donovan
The goal of United States foreign policy is not to make people like us--it is to advance the interests of the United States. We're not inviting foreigners to tea. The idea is to show them that we are always willing to be the best of friends, but always ready to be the worst of enemies, if they're foolish enough to want that. And the only enemies that count are the ones who have both the desire and the military capability to harm this country. The rest can go chase themselves.
