yabut, you know - fighting them over there instead of over here! Ya ya, hindsight. Of course it was fear that drove the United States - fear of another attack by al-Qaeda, which was then firmly entrenched in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Fear of other possible terrorist attacks. Certainly the U.S. public wanted retribution. Member eyeball, perhaps your hindsight can offer up what the U.S. should have alternatively done in response to the 9/11 attacks - yes? Along with the UN and NATO response sanctioning the ISAF - what should they have also alternatively done?

Did the USA need to go to war with Pakistan to go and fetch bin Laden from that country?   They came and went in a few hours.

Are you saying they couldn’t try and get bin Laden without getting into a 20year war in Afghanistan?
