Which, coincidentally, was one of Osama bin Laden's big demands.
Remove our troops from around the Islamic holy sites of Mecca and Medina.

Where were the 9-11 attackers from?????? Hummmmm.... I'd arm Iran to the teeth and tell them where Mecca is. Then again, I'm not "Bandar Bush" nor wanting to start another war in the Middle East that we can't win.

Has the orange sloth forgotten already, why Al Qaida, under Osama bin Laden, waged war against the United States or has he ever known Osama's publicly declared reason that the United States has violated sacred tenants by placing US troops in the holy land of Saudi Arabia? Even Reagan pulled troops out for this reason when our marine barracks were blown up. Its why our base was moved to Qatar. We all live more complicated lives because of Al Qaida and should learn something from that experience.
