    Does Bush credit for the $2.2 trillion added to the debt, the 4500 troops killed, thousands of life altering injuries?

    Re: Is the world a better place without Saddam Hussein?

    The USA and the world would be a better place if G.W. Bush had never been born.

    Getting rid of Saddam Hussein did nothing for the USA.

    Because of the Bush mis-administrations illegal war in Iraq about 4,500 American warriors died, 30,000 were badly wounded, we have a $1 trillion debt and are looking at $700 billion to $1 trillion in future costs. The USA gained nothing, but it lost a hell of a lot.

    We won't talk about the huge Iraqi losses, the way over 100,000 innocent civilians dead and hundreds of thousands wounded.

    Iran gained a lot, and China gained a good bit.

    I don't see that as a good thing for the USA.

    Anyone who thinks that the USA gained anything in Iraq need to have a talk with the families of some of the dead and wounded Americans.

    That's all that I have to say on this sad topic.

    Maybe you just want to believe he didn't. But it takes some serious willing suspension of disbelief not think he lied when he said things the intel didn't support, and held no one accountable for either lying to him or not telling him everything.

    I agree.

    Bush deserves all the credit for the dead and wounded and the money wasted in Iraq.

    The man should be locked up.

    He is not alone. And many more should be fired, republican and democrat for not doing their jobs.

    I totally agree there are guilty people on both sides of the aisle, but Bush was the Commander-in-Chief and the 'decider' so, for sure he deserves most of the blame, followed closely by 'Dick' Cheney.

    It is when it costs so many people their lives and so many others their health.

    Someone needs to pay a price for that.

    No one has really even said that they're sorry yet, unless I missed it.
