    It's all conjecture, but taking into account his world-wide apology tour, I can draw the conclusion that there would have been much talk & no action....
    If nothing else we knocked the 'bad guys' on their heels for several years....
    Obama does nothing but embolden them by looking like a .. uh..easy touch...
    Especially after licking Putin's & Medvedev's boots......

    There's no better way to attack those that attack us then to fight a completely separate country and say "hey look what we could be doing to you, don't think about attacking us again."

    Those of you who are saying similar things. Do you actually believe he would, or are you just trying to jab at the president?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    You know this based on?

    Apparently Bush thought otherwise in 2001.

    Fineman says Mr. Bush briefed them on plans for action against the terrorists and said, "“When I take action, I’m not going to fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt. It’s going to be decisive.”
    Terrorists hate what the United States stands for and they thought Americans were weak, he continued. "They thought we were so self-absorbed in our materialism that all we would probably do is just sue them," he said. "Man, were they wrong."
    He wouldn't have attacked at least until he had his world coalition, which probably wouldn't have happened.

    Um no Al-Qaeda was a member of the Taliban government, they sat on their ministry of defense, and there was even an AQ specific branch of the Taliban military known as the 055 brigade. Furthermore; the Taliban granted AQ a safe haven in which to train and launch attacks against the U.S. and the West, they were co-conspirators in the 9-11 attacks and as such are just as responsible for the attacks as AQ itself.

    Using your logic if the CIA decided to blow up a building in say Saudi Arabia it would not have been the U.S. that attacked Saudi Arabia.

    Kind of happy this poll is one of the few not split right down political lines.

    Good question.

    I don't think he would have. But it is just a hunch not based on any real facts.

    Then why did we end up in Iraq?
