    See, this is what happens when we cut and run in the middle of a job. We could have stabilized this country years ago, but instead, we cut and ran the second we started taking casualties. If Mogadishu had happened under the watch of somebody more similar to Bush or Reagan, it would have, by now, been practically leveled and then rebuilt bigger and better.

    It might also bear mentioning that th civilians support the U.S.'s suggestion of helping clean up the country.

    Agreed, it was this incident which emboldened UBL, from his own quotes.

    I remember that well...I remember the outrage of seeing (at the time) my fellow servicemen dragged, lifeless, through the streets. God be glorified, because if I happened to have a MOAB at my disposal I'd surely have used it.

    I will never forget how sick I felt seeing that. I met a gentleman a while back who flew an Apachie helicopter there, and he told me an earful about Clinton's lack of leadership and support that led to that whole horror.
