Yes, Bush did. And just as soon as we got UBL, we should have pulled out. As far as trying to build a democracy in Muslim country, it is like pissing into a sand storm!
Oh, yes, there are bad Christians and Jews and most Muslims and atheists are good people. But a disproportional percentage of Muslims or atheist are bad.
First of all, Bush did not use any ploy and did not lie. EVERYONE agreed that Saddamn Hussein had WMD. Now do not bother to show me anything AFTER THE FACT as we all know that they did not faind an active WMD program.<quoted text>
And on whose authority did GWB move to install a democratic regime in Iraq or ANY other country? That was his fall-back excuse when the WMD ploy proved tobe a lie by every single national and international organization. You hate it when Moslems, just as an example, foist their customs and religions and undemocratic regimes on us. And rightly so. I hate it maybe more than you do. In that light, please explain why you would interfere in Iraq's or any other country's internal affairs and install YOUR brand of govt. What's good for the goose is good for the gander, yes or no?
We don't have the right to force our form of government on them. AGAIN, you send the military in to kick azz and take names .... and then LEAVE. You will never keep these people in a box forever but you can convince them that when they do, we will bit them with the Big Stick. So, they can either live in peace, or they can die, the choice is their's.
If and when they get more powerful than we are, then, and only then, can they dictate to us. Until then, they need to listed very carefully.
