Popular opinion is more important than ideology in politics. They will do anything to get elected.
    Think about it. The people who attacked us are terrorists who officially does not belong to any particular government. I would have no doubts that because of that Obama would have asked the ME governments to help capture them. At worst he would have called for sanctions against any country that harbored them.

    Exactly - he would have done everything alternative to what was done. That's been his platform, he's almost a pacifist.

    I think sanctions would be pretty fruitless against AFG.

    Listen, I don't have a dog in the fight, ideologically like y'all. But I would be shocked if any President didn't seek military action after 9/11. The country wouldn't have stood for it.

    Be shocked - if he's true to anything he repeats over and over then he's against how we dealt with things, period, which is why he's always shoving the blame onto Bush.

    In the future (heaven's forbid ... stave a jinx) if something happens I'd be shocked if he actually chooses to fight someone or something.

    The only situatioin in which I see him applying our troops is to combat issues in Africa - see post #69.

    This would not surprise me, but we don't have the troops right now. We set up AFRICOM for a reason.

    I think before we get into Africa, we have to pull out of Iraq first.

    It will have to be something he does in his 2nd term---if elected.

    Very true, here ... he might be a pacifist to some degree but he's not an idiot. . . eventhough some contend that they go hand in hand.

    Quite frankly I'm not shocked about anything our government does. No matter who is president. And I do think that the country would have stood for it. What could the country have done otherwise? Vote em out? Big whoop. By then it would have been a moot point.

    For a response just like that, when I got out of the shower and made my coffee, yum yum.

    Alright. Firstly, his foreign policy identity for a political leader was created in the aftermath of 9/11 and Bush's response to it. I would question anyone's judgment that we know sufficiently of his pre-9/11 ideology, furthermore if the man could have been seen in a decision-making capacity to begin with.

    Second, history happened, and that was that, and I'm not much for science fiction.

    Third, Gore would have perhaps been a better candidate for the question, but again, science fiction.
