I actually supported the war initially...
I had faith that even though politicians lie, that we wouldn't base the premise of going to war on a lie.
We were told by the commander in chief, and his administration, that there was ample reason to believe Saddam was breaking his cease-fire agreements
and continuing with his weapons programs. We believed him, or at least we wanted to.
The world community was also told this. They were (rightly so it appears) more skeptical.
However, once it was PROVEN (i.e. we didn't turn up such weapons) that this information was faulty (or that the administration had allowed Saddam to
move the weapons, doesn't really matter which at this point)...the entire justification for the war went out the window, and it was shown to be an
illegal action, and an illegal war.
While I support the troops wholeheartedly (indeed, I've contributed to, and helped (and still help) organize care packages, etc. for them), I do NOT
support the current administration, or it's piss-poor handling of the problem. I only hope that before his term is up, we don't find ourselves full
blown into WWIII (as he alluded). I fear that it is a high hope indeed though...for he's often likened himself to being on a mission from God and
such zealots usually end up causing far more harm than good....
