    Now we need Bush and Cheney to come forth and admit it.

    And so it begins. Discuss.

    Bush/Cheney started planning as soon as they took office. First question after 9-11 was "how can we blame this on Iraq?"

    I disagree. From what I've read through history, England has brought us into their wars. I bet Blair wanted to invade Iraq because they had a lot more to gain by saddam being dead. We always protect our mother country, England.

    We are side by side with them which makes both countries more powerful.

    Uhhhhhh...I don't see any direct quote from Blair stating "I would have invaded Iraq anyway." All I see is sensationalist reporting and a couple quotes from someone close to Blair that still don't say "I would have invaded Iraq anyway."

    and..

    Bush/Cheney started planning as soon as they took office. First question after 9-11 was "how can we blame this on Iraq?"

    more babbling lies from rightwinger.....go figure.

    Goodness knows if a Democrat in the U.S. did such a thing, you'd be all over this. :eusa_whistle:

    He said he would of found a way to justify the war to Parliament and the People. He would of not stopped his attempt to invade Iraq. Bush leading the way was perfect for Blair.

    Grow up and stop starting threads with the word 'discuss'. We are in school.... oh, wait, you are... Hmmmm. Ok. The rest of us are grown ups and don't need to be instructed to 'discuss'. Idiot.

    We should have a discussion about that. Discuss.

    (Note: You really need to look up the Streisand effect)

    By the way, you just said "we are in school". Nice of you to share that with us. :)
