    I'm not even sure what that supposed to mean. What you call "Bush's fault" is just basic causality. If you do things then you did those things.
    Really, okay well you need to learn in the case of the Iraq war there was nearly unanimous belief that WMDs existed prior to the invasion, which was one of several premises for invading. In the current case, there is no universal belief about who used the WMDs, and st still being debated internationally and within Congress. But nonetheless, Obama and Kerry was to surge forward.

    Had the US not got involved, the Germans would have had many more men to send to the Russian fronts and continued the offensive.
    But the US and its allies knew that a Germany that large was not to be accepted and got into the war.
    Had we not, Russia would have fallen. Russia was lucky German was not able to fight on two fronts.
    Luck played no part of it. Simple logistics belies your misplaced worship of US involvement. Luck couldn't have allowed Russia to single-henadedly beat off over a dozen times as many divisions as the US ever had to deal with. Luck clearly didn't prevent the loss of 9 million Russian combatants, as compared with 292,000 Americans.

    Worship? How about just the truth. Russia was losing men at an alarming rate.
    Had Germany been able to call up another 100K men and not had them fighting the US in France. Russia very well may be part of Germany to this day.
    And I agree, the US and its allies would have had a much harder time beating the Germans back to Germany had they not been tied up in Russia.
    The allies were very lucky that Germany could not recall what was left of its army in Russia in time to fight them.
    Luck played a huge part in all of the war. On both sides.
    But if you want to stick to the "Russia won the war", knock yourself out.

    You are wrong. The UN inspectors stated no WMDs had been found and they had unimpeded access. I can remember stating that in a College classroom at the time and being accused of being unpatriotic.

    The same can truthfully be said of Obama.
