Actually, thinking about this and applying your arguments, you obviously think the US invasion in Afghanistan, and subsequent actions in Iraq
following 9/11 were not justified?
Am I right?
No you are wrong. The US invasion on Afghanistan, gracious host of Al-qaida, provided a safe haven under an islamic regime for future acts of
attrocity on the entire world - not only the US. The Taliban regime was backward and dangerous on a local and global level. Are you suggesting that
Afghanistan and the Irish republic are parallel to one another?
Regarding Iraq, the invasion of Iraq was questionable. I do not know the actual motives and reasons behind the invasion (putting aside the stories in
the media that are never a true and complete story). Therefore I do not wish to give an opinion.
