    Would the U.S. attacked Afghanistan if Hussein Obama had been President?

    That is the 64 dollar question....I personally believe he would have asked the French to do it.........

    A democrat didn't invade a country the first time the trade towers were attacked. So most likely Obama wouldn't do ****.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Do you think the public will was there?
    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).

    Probably not.

    He might have sent some cruise missiles and some bombs, but I dont think that's what the question really asks.

    I would hope not.

    Invading whole countries to target small groups is a rather idiotic policy.
    (as we can clearly see eight years later.)

    Besides the fact they were all Saudi men funded through the Pakistani military.

    I think he may have done something more serious than just bombing a country. Not sure if we would have gone the full out invasion route though. And we definitely wouldn't have gotten side tracked into Iraq; that part's for damned sure.

    I'm not sure if they were funded by the Paki military. Where did you get that from?

    You mean immediately after we were brutally attacked and 3,000 people were murdered? Of course he would have, and you know it. Any president would have done so.

    At the time, that "small group" was also functioning as the Afghan government...or at least the dominant military force.

    For most of that time, Afghanistan was not a major security problem. That's just been an issue in the last couple years.

    The planning was done in Afghanistan and the Taliban was harboring the people responsible.

    Technically he wouldn't of attacked Afghanistan since Afghanistan didn't attack us. He would have attacked terrorists hiding in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

    He sure as hell wouldn't have missed the target completely and landed in Iraq.
