Bush and Chaney wanted war on Iraq. The people of the U.S. and Iraq did not want this illegal war. Intelligent leaders worldwide could not justify war for revenge, oil or Halliburton contracts.
Lies were offered as proof of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Inspectors had found no such weapons. Saddam, who we setup as dictator of Iraq, was not good, but was not part of 9/11. We had disarmed him thru the U.N. Thus we could easily win a battle.
But we forgot a great lesson in history – that no nation can occupy another for long. King George, in 1776, also sent 20,000 troops to put down violence and defeat the American “insurgents”. The insurgents won.
The Bush administration called the bombing of Iraq – “shock and awe.” 3000 Americans killed and 20,000 wounded deserve better. 100,000 innocents killed in Iraq and the 500,000 plus dead by our prior sanctions created millions in Iraq and the Middle-East who now hate us.
As a nation, we should only go to war in self-defense, under real threat, or with U.N. forces. Bush and Chaney have violated every principal we stand for as a nation.
