LOL I do remember! Kev though couldn't seem to get to a point and I missed the joke!
Sorry, it was a question, not a statement.
I'm not sure how much clearer I could have made it.
So I'll guess I'll have to make a statement.
After the "black hawk down" incident & the subsequent dragging of the dead soldiers bodies through Mogadishu, President Clinton withdrew the troops from Somalia.
Bin laden said this:
"They participated with their brothers in Somalia against the American occupation troops & killed large numbers of them. The American administration was aware of that. After a little resistance, the American troops left achieving nothing. They left after claiming they were the largest power on earth.
Bin laden, after this, believed America had no stomach for a fight & decided to up the ante.
The consequence of this was 9/11.
Appeasement leads to greater violence.
Very good, exactly. Yes, I believe this emboldened bin Laden. So too, Mr. Carter's handling of the Iranian hostage crisis, 444 Days? What was that???
If I were him I'd feel like the response on the USS Cole bombing, was just an invitation to do something bigger. He took us up on it, just wrong guy was president on 9/11...
Aint that a fact.
