|This isn't the guy? Are you sure?|
Happy 9/11 Day. Does that sound just weird?
We could have gone in an taken out the people responsible for the whole thing within a year, but we choose to invade another country and began (accelerated?) the destruction of our own country and what was left of our own ideals instead. Although to be honest I'm thinking we were so far gone by 2001 that there was no going back and people just started to notice after a while.
Let us not forget that the president we had in 2001 actually lost that election and there were no real protests when he was appointed by his dad's buds. Not that the other guy was any prize winner.
So we continue in Afghanistan because we can't leave (yet), we try to continue in Iraq because we can't leave, we will probably be putting money into Libya because NATO can't leave and they have their own economic problems and since they are marginally more intelligent than us they are going to insist that we help them out financially. I guess it is possible that the Libyan oil will pay for it, hahahaha.
So although he is now dead Bin Laden has pretty much accomplished everything he hoped to accomplish after all, so I guess somebody should be celebrating.
