I'm sorry it's happening, of course," Bush said in a wide-ranging interview with ABC's "World News," which was airing Monday. "Obviously I don't like the idea of people losing jobs, or being worried about their 401(k)s. On the other hand, the American people got to know that we will safeguard the system. I mean, we're in. And if we need to be in more, we will."
On the war in Iraq, Bush said the biggest regret of his presidency was the "intelligence failure" regarding the extent of the Saddam Hussein threat to the United States. With the support of Congress, Bush ordered the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003 — a decision largely justified on grounds — later proved false — that Saddam was building weapons of mass destruction.

Bush took us to war with the support of the Congress they could have said no he could not have sent troops and fought a war without them. Clinton voted for it and she was married to a former President who also said Saddam Hussien was a threat. The President and Congress made the best decision they could based on the information they had.
Waldorfmom makes excellent points. If anyone took the time to read about the event before the war they would see there were valid reasons. Had the war gone smoothly there would be no negative talk about it. Like all wars this one was messy not nearly as messy as most fought but messy and is taking time. I hate war but I hate pacifism more.
