I misred nothing. He called me foolish and stupid for thinking that killing OBL would have prevented 9/11. No where in my original post did I state that killing OBL would not have been a good thing, it simply would not have prevented 9/11. So why else would he be calling me out?Originally posted by: Smilin
I think you answered before you really read his post. Seriously, do an edit or something. He said, "killing him early would have been a momentously helpful achievement, 9/11 prevented or no."Originally posted by: umbrella39
Bullshit. 9/11 was already in motion then and the only thing killing OBL would have done is change the time table. Prove you are right and I am wrong. Until then since neither of us can, STFU.Originally posted by: Frackal
Actually that is an amazingly stupid statement. Bin Laden is extraordinary at what he does, killing him early would have been a momentously helpful achievement, 9/11 prevented or no. Stop acting foolish, you don't have any idea what you're talking about.Originally posted by: umbrella39
The part that still amuses me is some people, cough the GOP, think that had Clinton been able to kill OBL when he had the window to do so, that would have somehow prevented 9/11. History tells us that cutting off the head simply spawns a new one. So this whole OBL/Clinton echo chamber BS is just that, BS It is planned, strategic deflection for the ball they have dropped time and time again since 9/11. The world is indeed less safe now thanks to our romp in Iraq. It's time for a change.
Do you think that killing OBL today would stop terrorism and prevent the killings of US soldiers and the Iraqis?
If you answer yes, you are a fool.
If you answer no, you are an even bigger fool for calling me out for the same exact thing. Again, since you appear to be daft, killing OBL when Clinton had the chance would not have prevented 9/11, it would have only changed the time table.
The crux of my post was that 9/11 was already in motion (was in not reported that it took 5 years to plan and execute?)
You did fail to accurately read my post, or some other error(s).
You were diminishing the importance of Usama Bin Laden with this statement:
"History tells us that cutting off the head simply spawns a new one."
This is a grossly inaccurate statement if applied to Usama Bin Laden, which you did with your post.
It strongly implies a lack of understanding of him and the things I listed in my post above this.
Additionally, I called you neither stupid nor foolish, I said your statement was stupid and your behavior was foolish.
