Who made such an argument and when was it used by the Bush Administration to initiate a long term declaration of war against Iraq?A big part of the argument for war, was that a functioning democracy in the ME would be a powerful ideological challenge to Islamic Extremism.
Iraq was presented as a good candidate for that
I recall Newt Gingrich and Charles Krauthammer making that argument.
Note sure what you mean by "used by". There was a national debate on this issue and those who supported war, made their side's case.
And they won.
Why do you always cut away context of points? Are you even aware of your reason?
