Bush was in a no-win situation. If, after 9/11 and the fact that everybody believed Saddam had WMD's, Bush had not attacked Iraq, the same critics would be cutting Bush off at the knees for not taking action.

It ought to be recalled here for those reading this thread that the demand for REGIME CHANGE in Iraq was initiated by the DEMOCRATS under President Clinton.

Exactly! The fact is that John Kerry, John Rockefeller IV and every prominent Democrat BELIEVED Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and they agreed his removal from power was urgent. We achieved that goal and the Democrats are angry that humanity depravity on a scale unseeen in human history was unleashed in Iraq following our invasion there. Let it be known for the historical record that was NOT America's doing. We are and remain a decent people who wish others the same freedom that we claim for ourselves.

Don't forget it is the left that is screaming for the US to "do something" about the Darfur massacre. Wouldn't this be an "illegal, immmoral attack on a sovereign nation that never attacked us"?

The old media also treats pre-911 as if we were at peace with Iraq. We were not. Saddam started violating the 1991 cease fire agreement almost immediately after signing it. Among other infractions he regularly shot at coalition aircraft patrolling the country.
