You're running away from this, typical for an indoctrinated Democrat dupe.<quoted text>
11/01/2002, George W. Bush, President
"... for the sake of protecting our friends and allies, the United States will lead a mighty coalition of freedom-loving nations and disarm Saddam Hussein. See, I can't imagine what was going through the mind of this enemy when they hit us. They probably thought the national religion was materialism, that we were so selfish and so self-absorbed that after 9/11/2001 this mighty nation would take a couple of steps back and file a lawsuit.

"We also know that Iraq is harboring a terrorist network headed by a senior al Qaeda terrorist planner. This network runs a poison and explosive training camp in northeast Iraq, and many of its leaders are known to be in Baghdad."
05/01/2003, George W. Bush, President
"My fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended." Under the banner "Mission Accomplished."
I was still stationed in Iraq a year later. My brother died there during that time. Our highest casualty rate occurred after he declared that major combat operations have ended.

Q: Mr. President, Dr. Rice and Secretary Rumsfeld both said yesterday that they have seen no evidence that Iraq had anything to do with September 11th. THE PRESIDENT: "We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th."
"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." --Washington, D.C., March 13, 2002
"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office." --Washington, D.C., May 12, 2008
It didn't take long.
We have enough Democrat frauds pretending to be veterans here already. We don't need another.
You can say anything you want about the last president. You see, here in the United States, we have this thing called the First Amendment. It's right before the Second Amendment, in case anyone thinks they can do away with the First Amendment.
Since you claim to have been in Iraq fighting a war Bush started for some no good reason, I've got a question for you.
It's 9/12. You're the president. What do you do? Do you:
1) Surrender to the Islamist jihad? Or,
2) Do the Bill Clinton thing and lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction and call it a day? Or,
3) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and somehow you expect to experience something different than what the Soveits experienced? Or,
4) You do something different that gives you a better chance of kicking the everlovingshit out of the Islamist jihad?
What would you have done? If your answer is 4), do something different, what is it?
