Without hesitation he would order the launching of several Tomahawks and blow up a training camp or two. News media would praise his quick and calculated response. Our president would then announce "we will bring them to justice" and "no ground troops". Finally that night sitting back in his chair in the Oval Office, with his feet up on the desk, the new intern would light his cigar. Shok

Jimmuh Corter* would blither & dither until a "real" president got elected. * Now only our [i]second[/i] worst president.

Ronald Reagan would have decimated the entire Middle East.

I don't think anyone in the world would have been crazy enough to try, when Ronnie was in office.

Teddy - "Charge!!!!" Woodrow Wilson - Appeal to the League of Nations FDR - Raise taxes, create a make-work program and negotiate with Usama behind the scenes. Truman - First, fire Tommy Franks. Then fight Al Qaeda to a stalemate. Ike - They wouldn't dare. JFK - Talk tough, arrange for American air support and ground troops, then abandon the Northern Alliance at the last minute and let them get devoured alive. Johnson - Send troops over two at a time with orders not to shoot at any "civilian-looking" taliban. Nixon - Send GG Liddy and a couple of his "plumbers" to use NBC on them. Ford - Roll over and go back to sleep. Carter - Crawl into a fetal position on the ground and surrender. Reagan - "We begin bombing in five minutes" Bush Sr. - Send in the Schwartzkopf. Clinton - Unlatch Monica from his crotch, wipe, lob a cruise missle into the side of an Afghan mountain, then re-attach Monica.

Reagan would come on tv and talk tough. Behind our backs he would arm the enemy with promises of them not hurting us anymore. KInda like when he traded arm for hostages with iran. Carter would send in a covert force that would probably fail do to lack of training and proper equipment. Teddy and George W. would be the only two presidents that would handle this properly.
