Preventing Terrorist Attacks

In his autobiography, My Years as Prime Minister, Jean Chrétien told us the only reason Canada attacked Afghanistan was because Bush twisted Chrétien ’s arm. The deal was Canada could opt out of the coming Iraq war if we attacked Afghanistan.

That attack was not only illegal (an aggressive first strike), we committed all manner of atrocities. We should expect to pay for what we did. If we don’t like people fighting back, we should not attack them.
