I for one, don't believe the weaknesses that allowed the hijackings of 9/11 have been addressed. I think we still have many weaknesses in that area. Sure, we've made some changes, but not enough to really keep this from happening again. Too many stories of crazy stuff still happening that shouldn't.CaptainXeroid said:One important thing to remember is that on 9/11/2001, there had not been a US plane hijacked in eleven years. These hijackers exploited specific weaknesses that we believe have since been addressed.
I for one, supported the attack on Afghanistan. Not to "get revenge" but to help put a stop to terrorism. I did not, and never will, support the war on Iraq. I think this was more to boost Bush's ego, and I think he really thought it would increase his popularity (which it did for a short time). I think we're spending too much time and money in an area we had no business being in. And as a result, we haven't spent the time or money in actually protecting the US. I don't buy the whole "kill them before they kill us" philosophy. I say put the money into our infrastructure. Make our company safe.
