If, after 911, he did NOT take the threat of Saddam's WMD falling into the hands of terrorists seriously enough to warrant invading Iraq and deposing the butcher, he would not have been worthy of the office he holds.
He leans to the left on some issues but he is a TRUE LEADER!! He has done his constitutional duty in an exemplary fashion!!
Amen to that!
“If, after 911, he did NOT take the threat of Saddam’s WMD falling into the hands of terrorists seriously enough to warrant invading Iraq and deposing the butcher, he would not have been worthy of the office he holds.”
I don’t disagree with that. Like the quote goes (by whom I don’t know) “when it comes to national security, I’d rather be strong and wrong than right and weak”. I still think Iraq would have been over with a long time ago if we had not played it the nicer and gentler way, but it’s not as though a ton of terrorists haven’t been killed and a strong message sent to the world.
The message that it if we get pushed as far as we were by the tragedy of 9/11, we will commit military violence upon our enemies. I just hope that next time it will be without regard for the well-being and prosperity of our enemies at the expense of thousands of our own military men and women. I just don’t have faith in the muslim people as a whole. I wish I could but I do not based on their ideology that rivals naziism for the most hateful belief system of all time.
