Bush TOTALLY gave up on him in Afghanistan.

And how many hundreds of millions of dollars worth of missiles landed in empty desert patches in Iraq?

Bush wasted a trillion dollars on a country that was NOT in any way a threat to you. Nothing was gained from that.

          Sure, there were troops there - 30K versus the 140K he moved into Iraq. That enabled the Taliban to take control again and allow Al Qaeda to slip into Pakistan. Kerry or Hillary's speeches didn't... more

            Then share that with the intelligence committees of both the House and Senate, particularly Senators Kerry and Clinton. Having incorrect information is not an excuse; and "excuse" is, after all, but... more

              To pop a few Bush-bashing bubbles: Some 500+ artillery shells, filled with poison gas, were indeed found (these are "WMD"). That he was willing to use such weapons is inarguable - he had a history of ... more

                    Yes, we DO have the makings here of a very nasty situation. Not acting when you are threatened buys you nothing - just ask pre-war Poland. And France, and most of the rest of Europe.

                      Just just because there were talks about threats it doesn't mean they are credible. And in this case they are not. These 'threats' were fabrications for excuses to launch a premeditated invasion. It... more
