Huge war coming.

The war has been put off for ten years, during which time we have wasted time, blood, and treasure. We are much weaker now than we were in September 2001.

I understand why Bush did it, but it was a mistake, anyway.

Lots of truth in those statements. Thanks, and Merry Christmas.

Your time line is off badly.

The war began in 1991 and was prosecuted daily by Bill Clinton from air bases in Saudi Arabia.

The invasion in 2003 was an escalation, not a beginning. The escalation was because Saddam did not comply with UN resolutions and violated sanctions.

I don’t know if we are really weaker in terms of our military. We now have a lot experienced soldiers and they know the enemy.

If a real war broke out - and Obama isn’t CIC - we still know how to break things on a massive scale. Soft war we’ve never been good at...
