Biggest Blunder In World History?

Well, this is Osama Bin Laden's father. Many years ago someone on the street sold him some defective sheep-skin condoms and, well, the rest is history.

Of course, you'd think the U.S. made the biggest blunders of all time. They don't come close, son.

The biggest blunder of all time? Hitler invading the Soviet Union in 1941.

Big mistake. Big, BIG mistake.

In Somalia, had our forces been allowed to use heavy weapons like M1-A1 MBT's, then it would have been different.

The attack on Pearl Harbor was one of the biggest blunders ever made. Japan threw any chance of a negotiated settlement right out the window. It became war to the death. There was no way Japan could win a war of attrition with the United States. Also, as soon as Germany declared war on the United States, she sealed her fate.
