But Mooby, Afghanistan's government is HARBORING Osama bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda network.
as you have stated yourself in other postings - it was the government and not the people, and dont forget the taliban were not even elected.
The U.S. government asked the Taliban to hand bin Laden over, and they refused.
They asked for him to be handed over without any proof that he was behind it. If they had gone through the proper channels and extradited him would the response be different ?. I dont know, but you can look to lockerbie for a parallel (although there was no justice in that kangaroo court, check out the forthcoming re-trial and see another innocent man get his freedom).
I regret the loss of innocent Afghan lives as well...but when you are attacked on your own soil, what else can you do but respond with military action?
You dont understand terrorism if your only response is military action. How many fanatics do you think you are discouraging by the use of heavy duty discipline ?. None, but you are helping create many more.
The only way to stop terrorism is to stop the conditions that make it peoples only perceived option.
Like I said before, I am more than happy to see the Taliban overthrown, but their existence was a direct result of the George Bush seniors escapades and I did not hear of the U$A government complaining before.
What happened at the WTC was a tragedy, and I certainly wasnt cheering, but we cant change that now, we can only only hope to influence the future.
Lets try and influence it for the better.
