Oh, yes, I am well aware of Osama bin Laden's connections to the Saudi Royal Family. And the fact that the United States flew the bin Ladens that happened to be in the United States to Saudi Arabia for their own safety, when commercial airspace was shut down, in the days after 9/11.

However, if we weren't bombing the shit out of Iraq and Afghanistan, dropping bombs on people's weddings, dare I say it would be significantly harder for the likes of him to recruit his foot soldiers and suicide bombers. Not impossible, but maybe if we were to mind our own business instead of screwing the world over, the likes of him would face certain...recruitment issues.

Also, if this thread is a proxy for Iraq War debate, I would like to note that of the 19 9/11 hijackers, NONE of them were Iraqi.

Fifteen of them were Saudi.

We're picking the wrong fights (although, to be fair, picking a fight with Saudi Arabia would have that entire part of the world declaring immediate jihad against us).

EDIT: Can I invoke Godwin now? That didn't take long... :)
