In 1932? 1934? 1936 when they marched into the Rhineland? Or was it 1939 when he marched into the Sudatenland?
There were literally dozens of moments showing he was an imminent threat. Churchill saw this in the early 30's... but nobody listened. Hitler broke treaties and tested how far he could go. Saddam did the same. The only difference is Saddam had WMD, in which small amounts in the hands of idiots could kill tens, if not hundreds of thousands. The result wouldn't merely be catastrophic from a human toll, but what it could do to society.
Look, Democrats voted to send troops to war based on the info at hand. Democrats YEARS BEFORE were vocal about the threat. You ignore what Kay stated, Cohen warned about, and 12-years of letting the idiot show us how corrupt the UN is. This should have been dealt with in 1994, latest 1998... but Clinton never saw it in the polls.My God you guys will say anything to justify Bush's invasion of Iraq.
He used and had WMD? "Connect-the Dots" ... remember that? Even some Dems like Hillary did.t took two weeks to completely anialate Iraq with minimal loss of US life. He was no threat to anyone. Zero threat.
The invasion of Iraq will go down in history as the costliest mistake ever. And in the end the US will have gained absolutely nothing.
A democracy in the ME... the elimination of a tyrant hostile to the US. WMD threat eliminated.
LOL... he lost war, agreed to reveal his WMD and didn't... after 12-years. It was more than justified.It was never justified. We had more justification to invade China, Iran or North Korea.
Saddam had his chances, that he didn't take them (probably thinking he bought off the UN)... was his choice.
