  • Bush's went to war in Iraq with, of course, the approval of CONGRESS who THEN consisted of many CURRENT Senators. Remember, it is CONGRESS that writes and votes on such things!


    And for those too dense to use Google, Bush's plan in going to war with Iraq was to destabilize the Middle East! You see, Iraq lies smack dab in the middle of the Middle East, so the plan was to "divide and conquer" and to flush out the terrorists.



     


    SOME countries got the message (Syria), and retreated, and those with unyielding dictators stood firm and are paying the price (Iraq and now Afghanistan and soon to be Iran).

  • I would say Biden was right--again. The rest of the Obama adm doesn't like that when Biden does that. That is why he gets grounded to the VP mansion so much.

  • Bush and the Iraqis are the ones who set the timetable. I hope ^^ didn't think Obama did that.

  • Bush set the timetable first and Obama followed it. So yes he was right to give credit where it is do... he started it Obama "finished" it and what I mean by that is.. I do not think the war had truly ended.. it just moved to a different country.

  • Natesmom, you are spot on! Clinton GUTTED our military AND his administration had intelligence that something was afoot before 9/11. They did NOTHING.

  • so who is lying? you? or Mr Bush to congress?


    ***


    "Bush has, since the invasion of Iraq, explicitly stated that Iraq was not involved in 9-11"


    Senator Clinton said during a speech on the Senate floor that there was no dispute that Hussein was not involved in the September 11th attacks.


    Nevertheless, BBC News, The Christian Science Monitor, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Institute for Public Accuracy, and Media Matters for America contend that members of the administration repeatedly over the years made suggestive statements with the implied message there was a link between Saddam Hussein and the attacks."
