Here's an article from today on that very subject, discussing the Iraq war on it's tenth anniversary.
Iraq War 10th Anniversary Reminds Us Of The Questions We Didn't Ask
and againThe war remains one of America's most controversial, not to say catastrophic, military endeavors. As we now know, though the U.S. would not invade Iraq until 2003, President Bush (or rather Vice President Dick Cheney, the real "decider") had already determined that the second step in the "war on terror" would be to obliterate Saddam's regime.
And, yet, againWhen President George W. Bush announced the invasion into Iraq in March 2003, the goal was to remove a dangerous dictator and his supposed stocks of weapons of mass destruction. It was also to create a functioning democracy and thereby inspire what Bush called a "global democracy revolution."
Any more stupid questions?Ten years ago Saturday, the first U.S. troops started to stealthily enter Iraq in advance of the massive "shock and awe" bombing that began on March 20, 2003.
From the article I cited for Mohammed up there.
So, don't twist reality to suit your myopic agenda.Too many members of Congress, including Democrats, stifled their doubts out of political fear -- fear that Bush might be right about the evidence, but more important, fear that the war would go well and they would be on the "wrong" side of it politically, headed into the 2004 presidential election year.
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
When you invent my argument by lumping we in with the "Right", it just shows you can't actually debate individuals and individual ideas.
