stockingfull wrote::blah: Hate to interrupt your circle-jerque here, boyz, but your point about L'il Bush has just a few material flaws:
NONE of the 9/11 attackers was from Iraq. (Did we invade Saudi Arabia, where 19 of the 22 came from?) Al Quaeda wasn't in Iraq before we went there (and it certainly wasn't any part of the stated reason we went in there). We had international support for the now-imperiled effort to get OBL in Afghanistan but squandered it by the idiotic Iraqi invasion.
And, for those of you who wouldn't have fought WWI or WWII, but still think the Shrub-in-chief was smart for going into Iraq -- not Afghanistan, boyz, I know you have some trouble distinguishing the two, but they're different countries in a part of the world called the Middle East -- may I suggest that you sober up and try thinking about it clearly?
Absolutely agree & I don't understand how GW has managed to still make people think Iraq had anything to do with 9/11???? Bush's own intelligence agencies admitt that Al Quieda is getting stronger daily while our armed forces are being pushed to the breaking point. Rangel has a point....If we had a draft again this Iraq situation (occupation) would end tomorrow! I've asked it before but I'll ask again: We won the war in Iraq & they now have a freely elected government. Saddam & his sons are dea....Who are we fighting?? (hint....It isn't Al Quieda...they are in Afganistan & Pakistan)
