TERRORISM = 9/11 = SHOCK AND AWE

SHOCK AND AWE WAS A EUPHEMISM FOR TERRORISM.

According to Wikipedia

Terrorism, in the modern sense,[1] is violence, the threat of violence, or other harmful acts committed for political or ideological goals.[2] Most definitions of terrorism include only those acts which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for an ideological goal (as opposed to a lone attack), and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians)

We had to do SOMETHING about 9/11?

Did the USA commit a violent act against Iraq for a political or ideological goal ? Were non-combatants made unsafe in the process?

19 9/11 hijackers were willing to give up their lives because , rightly or wrongly , they felt that the USA was doing bad things to the Mideast.

None of the hijackers were from Iraq.

Against the advice of most of the world , the USA preemptively invaded an oil rich Arab country that had not attacked the USA and was no danger to the USA.

Military resources were diverted from where Al Qaeda was in Afganistan to where Al Qaeda was not (in iraq).

The costs of the iraq war have been astronomical and the benefits have been zero. (Except to Hallibuton, et al )

Hillary , Edwards and McCain enabled that disaster. McCain continues to enable that disaster.

Obama opposed that disaster.
