Shooting at planes in the no fly zone was enough to take him down.

Bush NEVER said ONCE that WMD was the only reason.

I’m confident history will record this properly. Taking out of Saddam (you know, the other Hussein) will mark a turning point in Mideast relations.

Meanwhile the region is not even close to being stabilized and Iran is about to have nuclear weapons. Also fighting them over there and letting them setup shop here and in the UK makes no sense at all. Nation building was a huge mistake.

Nor was WMD the reason the anti-American left opposed the Iraq theatre of the war on terriorist. They opposed it for the same reason they opposed and oppose the Afghan theatre, they are against the US. WMD or lack of them was just an excuse, just as pretending Afghanistan was the good war was just a strategy for them, until Afghanistan became the main theatre of action.

Anybody have a copy of the speech KERRY made in debating Howard Dean in the democrat primary where he listed all the reasons we invaded Iraq and said referring to John Dean “Anybody that doesn’t think the world is a safer place without Saddam doesn’t have the sense to be president “

With a threatening Iran, taking out the Iraq bulwark was a bad idea. Long range it did not make us safer.

The reason for the war between the US and Iraq was Saddam's invasion of Kuwait, period.

Anyone who contends otherwise is a drooling idiot.
