Ya, so why didn’t we do this in Iraq?
I believe there was about six months warning coming from us before we entered Iraq. Of course, Saddam didn’t think it would actually happen and we didn’t use as much force as we could have, but the rest of the world knew what was coming and the anti-war left was livid over all the talking and saber rattling, as they said.
Cause they and the whole world knew we were coming. No big secret!
