i am a bit confused how attacking iraq even avenged 9/11, what did iraq have to do with it? i thought that was why the u.s. went into afghanistan, to get rid of a training camp. the hijackers were mainly saudi, so how does iraq fit into it?
i am getting confused for the reason why iraq was attacked.
Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, and every government that supports them. Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped, and defeated.
We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.
