Reader comment on item: 100 Bin Ladens on the Way?

Submitted by Glenn Klotz (United States), Apr 8, 2003 at 11:23

I agree that smashing Saddam won't necessarily act as a recruiting agent for OBL et al. But the way we are fumbling the ball in Afghanistan right now just might. It appears that Afghanistan isn't getting the funding it needs to re-build that forelorn mess of a country and we might find ourselves 5 yrs hence right back to square 1 fighting a new Taliban like governement there if we don't live up to our loftly goals. Is the Bush policy going to smash these places up and then abandon them afterwards? If that's the plan, I want no part of it. Right now that's exactly what it looks like is happening.
