I'd rather have Clinton not go into Afghanistan than have Bush go into another country on a "pre-emptive" strike even though he posed no threat to the U.S.
See to me that makes sense.
I view the situation like this:
Traditionally it is proper etiqutte to only shoot people when they cross your "No Trespassing" sign, not pre-emptively break into their house and kill them and their families out of paranoia. Hell even if they didn't 'like' you in the first place they might have good reasons, doesn't matter a goddamn till they show hostility. If the resources went into guarding our borders that went into invading Iraq we would never need fear another terrorist attack.
But the truly brave don't kill for their beliefs, and they don't quake at their own mortality.
