We should not have gone to war in Afghanistan, either. Instead, we should have forgiven Al-Qaeda. That’s what President Martin Luther King would do.

We should not have gone to war in Afghanistan, either. Instead, we should have forgiven Al-Qaeda. That’s what President Martin Luther King would do. Then he would have cleaned up Ground Zero and built a new World Trade Centre two stories taller. Life would have gone on. They wouldn’t have made those awful “dark” Superman and Star Trek movies (although at least we got THE DARK KNIGHT out of September 11th). All those people would still be alive. We’d all be richer. Iran hardliners would have a hard time selling the “Great Satan” idea. Oh, and right, there’d be no Syria. Donald Trump wouldn’t be running today. Obama might be running this year, or considering next or next-next time.  

We fell into Bin Laden’s whole trap: start a war.  
Just like Brad Pitt at the end of SEVEN: He should *not* kill the killer. Morally, I could care less – but the killer WANTS to trap Pitt into killing him. If Brad wants *true* revenge, he should let the killer LIVE, in jail (or, even, die on Death Row — killed not from the desired, needed Rage or Anger, but totally controlled, and methodical, and totally without passion).

We gave Bin Laden the victory. We handed him his objective; we made him a successful General who will go down with Hannibal or Robert Lee or George Washington; he’s already literally bigger than Han Solo.
“No dude… Han Solo is actually quite *literally* WAY bigger than Bin Laden.”

Right, right. Of course.  

“No dude, stop being patronizing — I think about Han Solo ALL the freaking time dude, and I literally NEVER think about Bin Laden at all, unless somebody like you brings him up. Han Solo is SOOO much genuinely bigger than Osama Bin Laden in terms of impact on our lives!”

NO WONDER BIN LADEN WON!
