Bush had Iran surrounded on all sides, Obama destroyed that.
Great point. All it took was a globe and a bit of common sense to understand why Bush wanted to invade Iraq so much. It had nothing to do with regime change or WMD’s. Iran is the most dangerous state in the region, and with US troops on both sides, they were pretty much hamstrung. They likely had the technology for some time to develop a nuke. Is it really a coincidence that they are about to do so AFTER we drawn down troop levels in neighboring countries?
