    When I first heard the mention of Iraq, my first through was "WTF? What did that come from?" The notion was sold on a mourning population who rightly wanted revenge on those who committed and planned 9/11. The timing had to be right, and the Bush Administration succeeded.

    The point is are the threats worth acting on? Previous leaders didn't think so. Bush and his admin felt evidence had presented itself that the known threat of Saddam was NOW worth acting on. Or they just required less evidence to attack people then the Democrats do.
    Democrats don't even need congressional approval to attack people the elite are above the law.

    Well such a shame what happened to Saddam can't happen to the duo
    Saddam was sponsoring terrorism against the United States right up until the fall of Baghdad, it is no longer debatable.

    I'm not sure I understand your post. Are you liking letting Bush's tax cuts expire to invading Iraq?

    Democrats don't even need congressional authority to invade and occupy (for more than a decade) foreign lands let alone evidence that they are a threat. Kosovo anyone?

    That may be true but there was no link to 9/11 -
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    I only recall Cheney asserting a link once through the Atta-ISS Prague connection. And while it now appears to be a case of mistaken identity the Czechs still stand by their story.
