Phil got it right about "why Iraq". Why not Afghanistan? Check out what happened to the mighty Soviet Union there. While urban warfare is difficult, mountain warfare is impossible for a mechanized force. Saying we could have dealt with al Qaida differently doesn't mean much without specifics. A lot of very knowledgeable and experienced people came up with our current strategy. If it was wrong, so be it - they did their best. When you're elected president I expect you will also do your best.

Our Commander-in-Chief had the following options: 1. Fight al Qaida in Afghanistan and lose badly 2. Do nothing and end up fighting al Qaida on American soil 3. Fight al Qaida somewhere else - say, Iraq, for example, and kill two birds with one stone Which would you prefer?
