    Let's put it this way, I would never buy the books you read.

    Why not? Are you afraid that truthful history would educate you?

    I have a problem with false statements.

    The war was not "ongoing" before Bush invaded Iraq. It started in 2003 and ended in 2011. Saying otherwise is false.

    If you want to say that the war which began in 1991 never ended, then you'd be wrong.

    Got any evidence to back up that ridiculous assertion?

    Here's a video from 1998.



    Looks like war to me and every other person who is not ignorant of history.

    Where do you guys get this stuff?
    Iraq Resolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In the House:
    Party Yes Nays PRES No Vote
    Republican 215 6 0 2
    Democratic 82 126 0 1
    Independent 0 1 0 0
    TOTALS 297 133 0 3

    82 (40%) of 208 Democratic Representatives voted for the resolution.
    6 (<3%) of 223 Republican Representatives voted against the resolution...
    40% to 97%. How is that Bipartisan?

    The senate:
    Party Ayes Nays No Vote
    Republican 48 1 0
    Democratic 29 21 0
    Independent 0 1 0
    TOTALS 77 23 0
    21 D's against it vs 1 Republican.


    Hmm...I like how you GOP guys twist reality. You all should sell used cars.

    That $6 Trillion could have bought us lots of bike paths, solar panels and high speed rail lines. But, no. Bush and his supporters had to start a war with a country that never did us any harm.

    Yes, but Pres Obama will have presided over 6 years of that war and he doubled down on it with his troop surge much like Pres Bush did on Iraq. So, still waiting on that thread instead of ridiculous deflections...........
