I answer more questions no one asked

If bin Laden’s intention behind 9-11 was to draw us into a quagmire in Afghanistan, and instead we invade Iraq, then wouldn’t pulling out of Iraq and moving more troops into Afghanistan pull us into said quagmire?

  1. Osama’s objective was to cause America to act in a manner which would destabilize the Arab world, causing a Qaedist revolution in at least one Arab-speaking state.

    It currently seems that a best-case scenario for them, at this point, is political freedom in 15% of Iraq.

    Not catastrophic. But I don’t think it’s any better than their position on 9/10 (freedom of maneuver in Pakistan, deepening ties to the ISA, sponsorship of a vital but under-western-radar Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, etc).
