I say it was a war of choice
An interesting way to put it. Perhaps it was a "self inflicted" war?
In his mind it was a "Necessary War" perhaps. However his legacy will be that he abandonded Afghanastian, and went after Iraq. Bad mistake! He had America in the palm of his hands, at one time, and he BLEW IT, and he keeps blowing it - and will continue do so until he is removed from office! He has almost turned into the mentality of a child. "If I can't win, no one is going to win - especially the United States of America!"
^ And King George II said unto his subjects, "L'etat c'est moi!".
Maybe he wasn't interested in having Americans in the palm of his hand. Besides--he didn't put them there--the media did. They were all for attacking Iraq until the were all against. I agree with Bush. It was time someone finally confronted radical islamists with force.
He will be gone in January and the next president can go kiss thier asses if he wishes. And that will be HIS legacy.
Haha, Saddam was a Secular Nationalist. Read.
think bigger--what makes you think toppling Saddam was the only goal here?
Not at all. Toppling Saddam probably was only a secondary goal. Just pointing out that it had nothing to do with radical islamists.
How can you possibly say that? Radical islamists came out of the woodwork to fight in Iraq. Do you have any idea how many have been killed because we invaded Iraq?
Oh, right. Radical Islamists that weren't there before. Remind me, next time that I have to get rid of a dangerous group of people, to go to YOUR country, bomb it and tell 'em "COME IN" so that I can "ambush" them.
"Hey, Iraqis, can we use your country as a fly swatter?" "Sure, America! We promise that a chunk of the population won't take it as a war against our people and take up arms against ya. Come right in, so you can root out the 'bad ones'."
I do, BTW. The range is about 17,000-23,000 out of anywhere from 200,000 to 1,200,000 people, depending on who you listen to. I tend to go for the higher estimate.
