Well if you stopped all the "What God Wants" **** and worked at making all the people of your country better educated and more prosperous then chances are you would have a billion dollar aircraft and multi million dollar drones to fight with.
Do you realize that Al Qaeda is only in existence in western intelligence agencies and that the name come from a computer provided to the mujahadeen by the CIA during the USSR occupation of afghanistan. I am still, 10 years after the fact, waiting for just one piece of actual documented evidence of his involvement.
You do realize that it was people not a computer, that flew those planes into the twin towers, the pentagon, blew up the USS Cole and so on right? Not a computer file, not a conspiracy, not someone's imagination and not God.
A group we know as Al Qaeda who was by his own admission, lead and organized and funded by bin Laden, sent video tapes to an independent source, claiming responsibility for those attacks and others.
I suspect that there will be a lifetime between you and someone proving that which you choose to believe does not exist. You believe what you want. I'll do the same.
I could find evidence of some pretty evil and nasty sh*t if I looked through the pentagon and CIA archives too. Be willing to be judged by the same standards you judge others by.
Sure, I know it too. At least as bad as anything someone wants to unleash on the West and perhaps worse. But you forget, they're savages, but they're our savages. I don't see why I need to limit my tool box of weapons to make it easier for you to beat me.
Once again, just 1 legitimate document please. A travel visa for one of the hijackers to or from Afghanistan, a money trail, anything?
There is a video of him standing in bin Laden's headquarters in Afghanistan reading his Martyrdom will. Atta was standing with Ziad Jarrah, the pilot of United Airlines flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers apparently stormed the flight deck. It's all available on the Internet if you want to go read it.
But you have to go read it and not tell those in a debate with you that you haven't been presented with one piece of evidence... Get off your bum and do your own research.
Only taken 60+ years to start to realize that foriegn policy may have made the west targets, how long will it take to change it? The only changes in the last decade have made things worse.
Change takes time. Fall backs happen. It's the getting back on the horse that eventually brings success.
Very interesting you bring up nukes, global thermonuclear war will solve everything. I was just watching Alex Jones showing documented comments from US govt officials about the subject and how the supposed terrorists have over 160 nukes, which is way more than they never found in Iraq, and how the US may have to use a pre-emptive strike before an american city suffers a nuclear blast.
No they don't solve anything. They just kill a lot of people at once. So while you complain about how unfair it is for the US to attack those who have attacked them when the US has such superior fire power, I tell you to count your blessings they didn't use what they have at their disposal. They in fact pulled their punches in Afghanistan and while fighting the Taliban with the rest of the Nato countries involved, they are also providing aid, relief and all kinds of effort to help real people regain a livelihood taken away by 30 plus years of war.
When do the radicals you fight so hard for get to their part?
