    We were going after Bin Laden and the Taliban were protecting him. The war is also against the Taliban

    The fact and reality is that you are incorrect. More Congressional Democrats voted against the war Iraq than voted for it

    Here are the totals:Oct. 2002 Congressional Votes Authorizing the President to Use Military Force Against Iraq - US - Iraq War - ProCon.org

Anyone involved with the Persian Gulf war and the effects of a decade of Sanctions should have known Iraq was of no threat to us or its neighbors.
    Then why the peace talks with the Taliban?

    I think that you might be wrong there.

    More Democrats voted against the war in Iraq than voted for it. Can you make the same claim of the GOP???
