    Say the US, after going into Afghanistan, decided to pursue AQ and other groups and went into, say, Pakistan or some other country. I mean, lets be honest, it was never going to end with Afghanistan. Would the same people who say the Iraq war has made us less safe, it's now a recruiting tool, more terrorists now, etc say the same thing about going into other countries? I think that they would. They wouldn't admit it, but they would. What do you thing.

    Look at the strategic overview of your scenario. Let's say we STILL, 15 years later, were babysitting Saddam's borders and had not invaded Iraq. WHERE would the war against the US/the West be?

    All the nutjobs currently in Iraq would be in Afghanistan, and the same nutjobs at home would be whining the same crap, they'd just have to learn to spell a bigger word.

    There were no NUTJOBS in Iraq until we invaded/occupied that nation and opened up thier borders. We were already in Afghanistan until Bush decided to take a detour in SECULAR IRAQ. Now it's a haven for SHIITE FUNDIES and Al Qaida.

    Except there were.
    The Sunni sure seemed to love Saddam and he used rhetoric from the Koran in his speeches and had mosques built. So it wasn't that secular.

    I think support for invading Afghanistan would fade the way it did for Iraq.

    Are you freeze dried or what?

    Iraq has been, and is to a LESSER degree, a haven for "nutjobs". Our invasion has only made their life more difficult, and SHORTER.

    A virus untreated will spread, and will, within time, kill the host, got it?

    There are adult classes for reading disabilities. Perhaps it's not too late?

    If I remember correctly, Iraq was more secular than a lot of the Middle Eastern countries that practice Sharia law.

    Any country †hat does not practice Sharia law is more secular/moderate than those that do. Your point?
