Suggest you contact them or do research as to their authorization of the war
    And that has what to do with the attack of 9/11? Do you believe that Iraq was behind it?
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

You fight wars to win them and that isn't what we did in Iraq
    We have a point of agreement here.

    There's little that separates any of these groups, other than being Islamists.

    Exactly, I was talking about the mission accomplished banner that liberals point to as Bush taking credit for victory in Iraq. That wasn't the case at all and your post shows that

    Still waiting on your opinion of the speech?
    Or are ya gonna sit back and peck at a phrase or 2?
    The speech is quite clear, it is going to take time and we are going to see it through.

Doing nothing more would have been electoral suicide for Bush. Iraq was the perfect patsy. They had blotted their copybook before so it was an easy sell given most Americans couldn't even point to Iraq on a map anyway. It worked a treat. Bush got his second term and anti Muslim vengeance was served. Lets be honest nobody in the US really cared what happened in Iraq after that because it had served its purpose. The aftermath is what we see today

    PS. The Russians 'saved all our asses' long before you lot got seriously involved in WW2
    Your "expert" opinion about the U.S. elections is quite telling.

    Don't see you calling anyone comrade these days thanks of course to the Russians

    Very good thus Bush didn't create ISIS, the withdrawal of American Troops did and they are taking over Iraq

    Read the 9/11 Commission report and Saddam Hussein's involvement with terrorism along with is strong desire for WMD and use of them.

    and, as long as the debacle can be blamed on a Democrat, it's all well and good. But, the actual situation in the Middle East is infinitely worse than it was before the invasion took place.

    What is evident now is the coverage is greater than it was before the war so how do you know? Things were much better after the surge and while U.S. troops were on the ground. They deteriorated after the troops left the country exactly as predicted
