  •  One of the things that annoys me most about (5+ / 0-)

    the US reaction to 9/11.  There was plenty of evidence of just how evil the Taliban was prior to that.  And we didn't give a rat's ass.  Saving millions of Afghani women from a horrific regime that treats them like they're not people?  Not important.  Saving outspoken critics arguing for freedom of thought from being executed for it?  Not important.  Getting revenge against the people who gave refuge to those who killed a few thousand Americans?  Vitally important enough to destroy the world economy and ruin the reputation of the US worldwide.
