Afghanistan - Taliban support of terrorists who attack us
on 9/11

So, the #43 administration invades IRAQ.

Put the $dollar$ cost off to future generations to pay.

We can go on to other subjects but this is limited to
the Bush Wars.

The only reason we are involved with Iraq is not Al Qaeda. The United Stated and their master Israel want to make sure that the Muslim world doesn't unite into one big superstate, also known as the Caliphate. Islam is probably the last strong hold in the world to the Zionist New World Order and their sheeple. Muslim societies want to remain pure and don't want to see gay pride parades and lady gaga bouncing around on TV. Christian societies on the other hand are morally bankrupt. Extreme Capitalism reigns on their societies and the poor keep getting screwed because of the sin of usury (lending with interest).

Rumsfeld will never tell the truth about WMD or that the war with Iraq was the worst mistake made. He will not admit it because he doesn't want the republican citizens to stop believing in the Bush administration's lies. It would mean that the republicans were lying than and are lying now.

This is such an old agrument.

The Intelligence agencies of SEVERAL nations stated there were WMDs, even Pres Clinton stated there were WMDs, Saddam had used WMDs against his own people and the Iranians, the Iraqi scientists told their boss they had them.

Was the war influenced by oil, sure. Who would you rather hold the gas pump? The other Arab nations were scared of an invasion by Saddam trying to control ALL the oil wells. He already tried taking Kuwait and Iran.

There WERE Al Queda training camps in Iraq and Saddam had no idea?

Saddam was murdering his people by the thousands. The same justication being used by the current President, to save Libyans.

Few are buying his book or giving him the light of day. He has to travel to get any sort of local attention nowadays. Good riddance.
