In 1982, Ronald Reagan said that we "could not afford to allow Iraq to lose the war to Iran", and that the United States "would do whatever was necessary to prevent Iraq from losing the war with Iran."
Ever since, liberals have been morally equating us with Saddam, acting as if our early support for him invalidated our removal of him more than 20 years later, after a decade of failed diplomacy, genocide, and terror-sponsoring.
Yet now that Democrats are in office, it's not only okay to get our hands dirty, but its even okay to work with a regime that facilitated 9/11 and still hides bin Laden.
Are you failing to comprehend basic facts and evidence again?
As I highlighted the first time this smokescreen was tossed up, you're splitting hairs to act as if there is this world of difference between the hard core Taliban extremists who merely sympathize with bin Laden on every level, stone women to death for being raped, and hate our guts...and the "radicals."
Ad populum fallacy. Try again.
This is like the third time I've spelled all this out. Either learn how to read or get used to being in the dark on this, because I'm not repeating it again.
The Taliban needs to be destroyed, not negotiated with. Leaving it in power on the comically naive hope that the "moderates" will keep Afghanistan from reverting to a savage Islamist slaughterhouse once we're gone is gullible in the extreme.
