As far as the use of pre-emptive force, I think that is something we should have at our disposal if needed. But I also want to know if my government considers that to be an option of last resort or something they are free to use indiscriminately.
Oh, no doubt, I totally agree with you. We'd better be 100% positive that the military action we are taking is indeed stopping an imminent attack.

This is a thread about the Bush doctrine, not specifically the Iraq war.

Would you have supported a ground invasion of Afghanistan if it would have stopped 9/11? That's the meat of this question. If we had stopped 9/11, we wouldn't have the insight of 9/11, and I'll bet there would be a SHITLOAD of people out there crying that we shouldn't have invaded Afghanistan.
