Although with Executive Orders, the greatest thing was the entire political ploy by whatshisname to create the greater islamic republic.
Step 1: Attack the US with bioweapons that do not touch their military-industrial complex at all
Step 2: Invade neighbors
Step 3: Pray really hard the US won't retaliate with WMDs, or that their untouched military can't stop you from achieving Step 2.
This IS al-Qaeda and the Taliban's plan.
Step 1: Launch an attack that devastates the US. Unfortunately for al-Qaeda, the group lacks the ability to manufacture sufficiently lethal bio-weapons. The September 11 attacks are arguably a substitute for this attack.
Step 2: From Afghanistan, infiltrate Pakistan- infiltrate becomes "invade" once the Pakistani government throws its lot with the US. From Pakistan, inflitrate/invade Kashmir- which is part of India!
Step 3: Bin Laden actually WANTED the US to retaliate with WMDs. He wanted to unite the Muslim world against a common enemy; and to start a world war in which all peoples must convert to Islam, or die. What he got was a drone war; tough luck.
That's saying nothing of the fact that an attempt to create a united islamic republic from Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia is insane in the first place and would never work, and thus whatshisname would get couped out of power approximately five minutes after he pushed his plan...
In case you haven't noticed, al-Qaeda ACTUALLY TRIED to create a United Islamic Republic from Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and nations such as Afghanistan, Pakistan...
Please do not make Americans fight giant monsters.
Those gun nuts do not understand the meaning of "overkill," and will simply use weapon after weapon of mass destruction (WMD) until the monster is dead, or until they run out of weapons.
They have more WMD than there are monsters for us to fight. (More insanity here.
