The US did launch attacks on Afganistan pretty quickly after the embassy bombings 3 years ago.

Hmm... I wonder if it's possible to infiltrate... After all, this IS a pretty accurate time for new recruits, after a "big victory".

Don't know for sure yet. Great terrorist tactic. Kill your own guys to boost morale against the ennemy.

Glad we agree on this.

And the so-called "smart weapons" are good against certain things, but if you want to make sure you send in troops. That is why we have them. They are not for ceremony.

I agree the troops are not only for ceremonies. However, it makes no sense to send in troops when they're going to die for sure. Bomb first, make people home happy. When things calm down, send the troops in to do the real damage...

I don't give a crap if you are Cloudy's online boyfriend that gives you no right to put words in my mouth and twist what I say to fight with me.
What does his relationship with Cloudy have to do with this? He was simply saying he thought the conspiracy theory was irrational, and giving reasons - I saw no flames in his posts, or are you puting words in HIS mouth (no that was NOT aninsult, just an observation)

I'm listening to CNN right now and they can't ID the source. Mind you I wasn't watching CNN on my first post on this issue (bombing in Kabul)

Oh strike with missiles and aircraft first by all means, but the troops need to be right behind that sort of attack to complete matters. This business of firing 50 missiles and analyzing the data for 6 weeks doesnt work.

How about surrounding the place, bombing, and then sending in troops right away to clean up?
