Would you have supported Clinton invading Iraq in, say, 1998?

So it was OK for Clinton/Berger/Albright...et.al. to call for IRAQ/ WMDs to be destroyed.. but when GWB goes and shows that there never were any.. that was wrong?
Consider what our costs would be today with Iran/Iraq/Syria all controlling the Strait of Hormuz?
But you don't obviously have NO idea of what or where that is do you much less the importance?

If anyone lied about Iraq having WMDs, it has to be Hans Blix. He's the one that said Saddam Hussein couldn't or wouldn't prove that the stockpiles of WMD had been destroyed. At the time it looked like Hussein was shipping his WMD to Syria and now, all of a sudden, Syria has stockpiles of chemical weapons just like the weapons Hussein was said to have had.

I didn't see Clinton being dumb enough to actually invade the country

Clinton managed to keep them in check for eight years. Bush had to kill 5000 Americans in his blunder of an attack

Yea Clinton's dick massaging seemed to require all his attention!
Surprisingly he never noticed the ecological destruction that he and his so called friends of earth much less his green VP Gore took note which later Scott Pelley of CBS called WMDs being used in Iraq...

This from CBS NEWS!!! WMDs found in Iraq!!!

In Iraq, where many biblical scholars place the Garden of Eden, Scott Pelley finds a water world where the Marsh Arabs are making a comeback after Saddam nearly destroyed the cradle of civilization.

It turns out Saddam Hussein did possess a weapon of mass destruction and he used it in a slaughter that few have heard of until now: after the Gulf War in 1991, the dictator spent untold millions on this weapon, designed to exterminate an ancient civilization called the "Ma'dan," also known as the "Marsh Arabs."
In a five-year project 90 percent of the marshes were drained - an area of more than 3,000 square miles.

"... the marsh dwellers were important elements in the uprising against Saddam Hussein’s regime. To end the rebellion, the regime implemented an intensive system of drainage and water diversion structures that desiccated over 90% of the marshes. The reed beds were also burned and poison introduced to the waters.
It is estimated that more than 500,000 were displaced, 95,000 of them to Iran, 300,000 internally displaced, and the remainder to other countries.
By January 2003, the majority of the marshes were wastelands.
"As an engineer, I'm telling you, drying of the marshes is definitely not an easy task. It's a monumental engineering project," Alwash explained. "He put every piece of equipment available in Iraq under his control at the services of the projects needed to dry the marshes."
"Saddam was using water as a weapon?" Pelley asked.
"You know, the world was looking for weapons of mass destruction. And the evidence was right under its nose," Alwash.

SKEERY isn't it?

Those weapons could have killed dozens......hardly worth the 5000 Bush killed trying to save us from them

You do know 1991 is not 2003 don't you?

Yeah I wonder why we didn't hear this from Bush either.

He's draining swamps!

In the middle of a rousing speech, he noted, almost as an aside, "There's another way for the bloodshed to stop, and this is for the Iraqi military and the Iraqi people to take matters into their own hands and force Saddam Hussein, the dictator, to step aside."

This was a notion trumpeted by other Administration officials as well, but what they and Bush had in mind was encouraging senior leaders of the Iraqi army or Baath Party to revolt.

"We didn't expect a general public uprising," says a former Bush aide. It was the Shi'ites in southern Iraq and the Kurds in the north--both of whom had long been subjugated by Saddam--who took Bush's words to heart.

They began their revolt on March 1, just one day after Bush halted the war. But Saddam's battered Republican Guard divisions in the south quickly refashioned themselves and attacked Shi'ite guerrillas. Meanwhile, in the north, several Iraqi divisions moved to crush the Kurdish rebellion.

The U.S. inadvertently helped Saddam annihilate the rebels by agreeing in the cease-fire deal negotiated by General Norman Schwarzkopf to allow Iraqi generals to continue flying their helicopters--a mistake because Saddam then used them to strafe rebels on the ground.

Desperate Shi'ite and Kurdish leaders begged the U.S. military for help. But Colin Powell, then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, wanted U.S. troops safely home, not mired in what might become a messy civil war. Secretary of State James Baker feared the "Lebanonization of Iraq."

Why the fuck is somebody dredging up this discussion ten years later?

Because the partisans on the right who originally supported Bush's war, strangely, somewhere along the way,

decided the war was wrong, but they couldn't admit that unless they could blame it on the Democrats.

Let me ask you another question you won't answer.

Was Bush derelict in his duty for NOT invading North Korea and Iran?

If war was necessary with Iraq, to protect the vital interests of the US, because of WMD's, wasn't war also necessary with North Korea and Iran,

who we also believed possessed WMD's?

Did GW Bush not fail to do his duty to protect the vital interests of this country when he did not take the necessary action of invading North Korea and Iran?
