    Re: Was George W Bush a good president?

    I'm not an American so I don't know. But did Bush have the integrity to thank the weapon inspectors who effiectivly got rid of the WMD before the invasion and therby help to stop the Iraq war from becoming an even bigger mess? Because invasion of Iraq totally failed at securing weapon sites So if Iraq had WMD those most likely would have ended up in the hands of terrorist.

    Also how much criticism did Bush get from starting a war that would most likely have lead to WMD in the hands of terrorist if he would have been right about the WMD?

    Iraq never had WMDs in the first place. And there was more than enough evidence before 2003 to demonstrate that. Plenty of people in government were aware of this; the American-century types at the top just didn't care.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.

    That is entirely false! They had WMD and we knew about it. This is why we demanded accountability for it. They may not have had any viable WMD left when we invaded, but they did have it before.

    Again, it was their lack of cooperation in following through with the agreements from the first Gulf war.

    I hate to tell you this, but the "Liar, liar, pants on fire" argument loses its power as you age. (Unless you're a turtle, apparently.)

    Absolute nonsense.

    Of-course Saddam had WMD.

    A long list of Democratic politicians going back to the late 90s even agreed that he had WMD and something needed to be done about it.

    Of-course they turned on him when they needed to construct a false narrative about his " lies ".

    Unfortunately, our Country is filled with easilly influenced and easilly manipulated people, who bought their BS hook line and sinker

    You're a great example of that

    Saddam had chemical weapons at one time.
    Fact is, none were found during the invasion.

    Saddam had no nukes. The story of his buying yellocake from Africa turned out to be false.

    Now, instead of (admittedly brutal dictator) Saddam Hussain, Iraq is being taken over by the Islamic nutters who are determined to build a caliphate in Iraq and Syria. Any guesses as to whether they have chemical weapons?

    You miss the point with that argument.

    He kept us from verifying his compliance with UN resolution. After 9/11 it was a big concern to see disposition of the WMD we knew he had previously. Any intelligent person would not discount the possibility he didn't allow verification because maybe he gave it to terrorists, or wanted to keep it himself.

    Iraq was crawling with UN inspectors before the invasion. What any intelligent person should have seen was that taking him out would lead to a power vacuum, which is exactly what has happened. What any intelligent person could have seen was that attempting to create a democracy in Iraq was a far, far more difficult proposition than it was being promoted as being. Unfortunately, the intelligent people didn't prevail in the decision to invade Iraq.

    They were not able to do their job properly. I'm sorry if you don't understand their lack of accomplishing their job, because of Saddam's noncompliance.
