Al Qaeda, al Qaeda, al Qaeda, al Qaeda, al Qaeda, al Qaeda. So, let’s attack IRAQ! Right?
Where is the al Qaeda base? (Did you know that "al Qaeda" is Arabic for "The Base"?)
According to the experts, al Qaeda is in the following countries:
- United States
- Saudi Arabia
And one crippled al Qaeda leader went to an Iraqi hospital.
So, with major camps in Pakistan, Indonesia, Somalia, and Yemen, we should attack IRAQ! Right?
Imagine you are the brutal leader of a non-religious country in the Middle East. You have total control of the population; one million people cast their vote for you out of fear. Would you let an armed group setup camp in your country? Wait, could you let a dangerous, religious, armed group setup camp in your country and still maintain total control?
We need to hunt down al Qaeda. We need to do it now. Let’s send 300,000 troops looking for al Qaeda where we can find them.
Let’s not attack Iraq. Let’s get al Qaeda.
