also, I recall several times when wmd were found and facilities to manufacture them. I have long since forgotten, or failed to record those sources, but just becuase the main stream media failed to report it, does not mean it was not on the news wires. It was not a lack of evidence for wmd, it was a lack of admitting it when pretending they did not exist would make bush look bad. Never-the-less, I do not think Bush was a great president, but for other reasons. As far as the whole Iran/Iraq/Afghanistan/terrorism thing goes, I think he was actually the right guy, in the right place, at the right time, and I think that history will treat him more kindly than many in this generation have.

Bush Vindicated????

 

"Two wars, sanctions and UNSCOM [united Nations Special Commission] oversight reduced Iraq's premier production facility to a stockpile of old damaged and contaminated chemical munitions (sealed in bunkers), a wasteland full of destroyed chemical munitions, razed structures, and unusable war-ravaged facilities," the CIA report said.

So how does this not vindicate Bush? The article admits that there was a chemical weapons facility there.

The claim that former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction and posed a threat to world security was the basis for the 2003 US invasion of Iraq. Before the invastion, the weapons at Muthanna had been found by UN inspectors but were dismantled with chemical stocks militarily useless and closed off in bunkers.

This neither vindicates GWB nor does it prove him wrong  The world knew Saddam had chemical weapons facilities during the first Gulf war.  The problem is that these things were never rendered unusable.  Our involvement in Iraq was a mistake we will be dealing with for decades to come.  That being said, I don't want to see one more American life (or those of our allies) wasted on that miserable country.  Not even sure if it can be called that after talking to people who have been there.  It was never worth the efforts made by so many, or the trillion dollars we threw into that pit and, IMO, they will NEVER be a civilized, cohesive society.

LadyC - a mistake that was never worth the effort? tell that to my daughter. tell that to my son-in-law. tell that to countless other military people who are proud of the work they accomplished in iraq. really MG, i wish you would choose your words more carefully.

 

I don't believe anyone is suggesting that the military did not serve honorably but rather that the motivation for our involvement with Iraq was based on False information and an unnecessary rush to war.  Perhaps that is why so many compare it to Viet Nam.  There were no WMDs found, Iraq had no involvement with 9/11, and the possibility of what is now taking place was strongly suggested many years ago ... the only people that made out in this was Cheney's old company Halliburton.
