Christ, Bin Ladens son is married to Mullah Omars daughter.

    When people claim that the Taliban didn't attack us it's like saying that if the CIA decided to bomb a building in; say, Saudi Arabia, that it wasn't the U.S. government attacking them. The Taliban was a co-conspirator in the 9-11 attacks and are thus just as guilty as AQ proper.

    I've seen nothing from Obama to make me believe that he would have gone to war in Afghanistan. He apologizes and takes forever to make strategic decisions. I doubt even 9/11 would have motivated him enough to go to war. We might have but it probably would have taken until his last year of office before he did anything...and that's assuming he was actually elected twice.

    So what's up with the 30K troops he sent to AFG in the spring?

    You brought up race... until then, I simply thought that he was making fun of you for hat he percieved as idol worship, and that idol is Obama. You bringing up racism sounds more like projection than anything else...

    ...and the Taliban where the leading "party" group in Afghanistan, not Pakistan which has a legitimate form of government, a Republic.

    Irrelevant. The war is happening now. Nothing he can do about that except finish what was started or risk giving those we are fighting a strategic advantage and a BIG boost to their moral, which could be more dangerous by itself than the strategic advantage. Put them together and we could quite possibly be screwed, blued, and tattooed.

    The question of the OP is would Obama have gone to war with Afghanistan if he had been President instead of Bush at that time. Since the thread is about that we would have to discount what he has done currently in the war for the reasons I just stated.

    I cannot imagine any President, regardless of how pacifist, would not pursue a military option after 9/11. Political suicide. The country demanded retribution and would not have accepted anything less. I think even Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich would have attacked in AFG after 9/11. Popular opinion is more important than ideology in politics. They will do anything to get elected.

    Obama traveled the world and applogized for our actions after he was elected.

    He wouldn't have attacked anyone after 9/11 - he would have given some speach saying "We as a people should stop and think. If we're angering the world with our actions then we must ask ourselves why . . ."
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I disagree, sorry. Even Al Gore would have pursued a military option.

    If Obama had done that, he would have been a one-term President.

    He might be anyway...
