Brace yourself.<quoted text> because bush was stupid enough to start a war where it wasn't nessesary.
Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998.
The Act declared that it was the Policy of the United States to support "regime change."
The Act was passed 360-38 in the U.S. House of Representatives and by unanimous consent in the Senate. President Bill Clinton signed the bill into law on October 31, 1998.
The law's stated purpose was: "to establish a program to support a transition to democracy in Iraq."
Congress found: "It should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime."
On December 16, 1998, President Bill Clinton mandated Operation Desert Fox, a major four-day bombing campaign on Iraqi targets.
The Act was cited as a basis of support in the Congressional Authorization for use of Military Force Against Iraq in October 2002.
...that was before democrats became weasels.
