Yeah, but if we'd have stayed in afghanistan, they would've gone THERE not Iraq. Al Queda is primarily Sunni, not Shi'ite, who are the majority by far in Iraq. Our economy would'nt be in the shitter, and besides, we supposedly didn't start a war in Iraq as "bait" for these bozo's. It'd be like going into Portland Oregon and fighting small enclaves of neo-nazi survivalists to draw the larger population of them from the sticks in WA and Idaho, so instead of fighting them in rural areas (far less collateral damage) you'd be fighting and bombing these guys in a major metropolitan area (far, far more collateral damage). That's just ricockulous.
