The last President that handled Iraq effectively as Bush... as in HW. The President that most over-reacted and screwed the issue up the most was his son. We never had any business in Iraq. Once we were dumb enough to actually go into Iraq, we should have done the next best thing an get out.
It recall the "mission accomplished" banner flew in May 2003. We should have been home 30 days later.
Bush in his own inarticulate way tried to tell everyone the cause for the Wars and terrorism, "America is addicted to oil." At the time, I thought he was having a "Duh" moment but it sure makes sense now.
