Just a blog post I thought was well put:


The Atrocity Following 9/11


Posted by Craig Biddle at 2:20 pm


On September 11, 2001, Islamists slaughtered almost 3,000 Americans, injured 6,000 more, and upended the lives of tens of thousands whose loved ones fell victim to this act of faith.

How did America respond?

We ignored the Islamist regimes that we knew were fundamentally responsible for the attack (those in Iran and Saudi Arabia), retaliated against a secular dictatorship that had little or nothing to do with the slaughter (Iraq), and proceeded over the course of eleven years (and counting) to sacrifice the lives or limbs of an additional 55,000 Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan—where more than 6,400 have died and more than 49,000 have been wounded—not to mention the hundreds of thousands of American lives forever damaged by the murder, loss, or injury of their loved ones.

All honest people recognize the atrocity of what Islamists did on 9/11. It is long past time for people to recognize the atrocity of America’s self-sacrificial response to that assault.

Self-esteem, moral justice, and common decency demand that we call loudly and clearly for the summary elimination of the Islamist regimes that sponsor terrorism against America. Let’s speak up.
(don't necessarily agree that the eliminating the Saudi regime is a good idea - even though they are morally responsible for 9/11, because a lot of them support Al Qaeda and their message - but I'm worried about something worse ending up in their place)

To be fair, we didn't go into Iraq until March of 03. I know they tried to tie Saddam in with bin Laden, but that was quickly rescinded.

So, we shouldn't have gone into Afghanistan at all to clear out where AQ was openly operating training camps and the head of their operation was known to be?

You're missing the main point of the posting. We didn't go after the source. And everyone knows why, we are slaved to saudi oil. How many of our presidents have kissed the hands of saudi royalty. Who or what is the source? Saudis. This argument has been brought up many times. And someone always defends the saudi government. But look at the list of terrorists that have targeted high visibilty u.s. targets and where they were from. That doesn't mean the saudi government had a direct or indirect role but it does mean they were saudis. And that's a fact americans in general haven't accepted because it would mean americans are directly and indirectly sponsoring attacks against americans.
