    I did. One side bombing another is not war.

    Only if the other side attacks back. It takes two countries for war. One country bombing another may be an act of war but it isn't a war. It takes two particpating in the acts of war to be war. A war is between two or more nations. Unilateral attacks are not "war".

    To prove that GWB lied, you have to prove that he knew what he said was wrong.
    As the intel didn't say that, his saying it is more than just being wrong. It's lying.

    Not at all. An act of war is an act of war, regardless of response.
    A series of acts of war constitutes a state of war, regardless of response.
    By your defintion, there is currently no war in Afghanistan because the Taliban isn't attacking the US.

    You -know- you cannot do that - and yet you persist.

    There is a difference between act of war and war. The Taliban hasn't attacked the US? You might want to do some research on that one.
    War did take place in Afghanistan and Iraq. We are in the later stages right now.
