    Correct, but he was the guy who kicked it off.

    That honor belongs to him alone.

    Totally true. Unfortunately, because many democrats were reticent to oppose it on the strength of the Bush campaign to demonize as anti-American and unpatriotic, those that did. And, your office might get anthraxed!

    The US has not supported ISIL or ANF.



    Who helped the Muslims in Afghanistan kick the Soviet Union out of there?

    Any ideas?

    As G.W. Bush said, "I'm the decider."
    Bush consulted with the intelligence agencies of our allies before invading Iraq, and each of them said Saddam Hussein had WMD. In addition, it was a bipartisan decision to go to war. Kerry, Pelosi, Reid, and several others agreed Hussein had WMD. Even Hillary Clinton supported Bush's decision in the interest of national security. Also, GW's comment on being the decider mainly had to do with the instatement of Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense.

    Whatever.

    I was raised on a farm and I know the difference between BS and peanut butter.

    What you are trying to spread here is not peanut butter.

    It was G.W. Bush who was the President of the USA at the time and it was he who took the USA to war in Iraq. He gets all of the credit for that.

    You may not want to accept that, but it's an ironclad fact.

    If the US president is now Dictator, and answers to no one, you'd be correct. If this is indeed the case, best take up arms now, march to DC, and throw the resident despots out on their asses. Then again, it must be Obama's fault that everything GW did is being undone. Or is that still GW's fault? lol

    Bush didn't accomplish anything in Iraq besides giving Iran a friendly state for a neighbor.

    That's a fact, deal with it or don't deal with it, your choice.

    Absolutist statements are almost always wrong.
