    It's possible that Bush or Cheney sensed right after 9-11 that America needed a war, needed to bomb the shittin's out of a whole lotta  them swarthy Mooslim types, and that if Americans didn't get their war they were going to start lynching Muslims right here at home.  Afghanistan hardly qualified as a war--it was like kicking a throw pillow. So Iraq.

    That also explains the torture thing--we never expected to get any information from torture,  but the folks back home found it very satisfying, and no doubt so did the torturers.
