Ok – so al Qaeda attacks us on 9/11. We spend a few minutes routing the Taliban from Afghanistan and leave. We then make lots of implications about Saddam Hussein being involved and being hellbent on nuking us, so we invade and occupy Iraq.
So, things in the tribal regions of the Pan-Afghan border where Osama and crew are hiding are tough.. because all our Arabic-speaking military and intelligence experts are bogged down in Iraq for God-knows-why. Then we convince Pakistan to go in and attack the guys who attacked us, because we’re busy occupying a nation that wasn’t a threat. Do I have this correct?
