Waterboarding is just as physically uncomfortable with or without consent, btw.

Do you not think the US military might use mild torture techniques to help its soldiers resist torture from the enemey?

Most of the world believed Sadam had WMDs. Many other countries helped America in the war. There was no propagating by Bush, there wasn't some evil conspiracy to get into Iraq. Many nations and leaders saw Sadam as a threat, many nations helped America in Iraq. I believe the whole "Bush lied people died" thing is Democrat propaganda. It's an unprovable accusation, and facts would support that Bush acted upon international wisdom that believed Iraq had WMDs.
