    So this boils down to not only should the US have overthrown an elected government, but they should have continued to support the "progressive" dictators who ruled for the next twenty-five years. And this is the only factor completely responsible for all Mid-east problems, despite numerous chances for presidents since then to act in response to such terror attacks, instead of ignoring them. On what planet is a dictatorship more progressive than a democracy? Your partisanship is so bold, you will make any wild claim to justify it. Your reasoning is nonsense. You want to blame a single president, blame the one that chose to overthrow an elected socialist for a dictator, the one who mistakenly believed that you can oppress a people forever, without repercussions. Sooner of later your chickens come home to roost. What exactly did supporting dictators and religious fanatics, merely to oppose the Soviets get us? How did that "lets give the Taliban aid" thing work out?
