.."we were wrong"...implying what exactly worldwatcher? Intel was wrong or Bush and the administration was wrong for going to war with Iraq BASED on the intelligence at hand...both domestic and foreign?
Be sure that when you and others point your lil' crocked fingers, despite whose side you subjectively think I am on, my beliefs and views are based around being objective, that you and them include the likes of the UN, France, Germany, the Democrats, Spain, and countless others who had intelligence on Iraq, and WHO also considered Iraq a "growing threat", is lying or as you call it: "double-speaking"?
Tenet also said that "in the intelligence business, you are never completely wrong or completely right ... When the facts of Iraq are all in, we will neither be completely right nor completely wrong."

pot, kettle, etc.
So, it's not a good idea to liberate a nation ruled by a mass genocidal tyrant????
liberate? yes alec, i'll take "a clue" for 100- please. funny, theres iraqis now blowing things up all over the place and marching...they really seem happy to be 'liberated'...but i guess they're too dumb to know whats best for themselves, good thing we're around to dictate for saddam now that he's gone.
I'm sure the Jews would of loved to of heard this talk in WWII.
comparing saddam to hitler might help you sleep at night but it's a pretty weak comparison.
NO! NO! War is not the answer!!!
Sometimes it is. I'm sure the slaves would agree to that.
ohhh the slaves...you mean the black people who were taken from their homeland and treated like property to help build this great nation of ours? oh i totally see the comparison there. end sarcasm. it's pretty obvious you can't deal with one situation at a time so you feel the need to compare other situations to try to justify invading a country for no good reason. again, whatever helps you sleep at night.
"It's none of our business!."
The world is our business it should be every nations business.
yes, the world is our business and we have to make sure we protect our US corporate interest wherever that may be.
And by the way. The New Government of Iraq and the United Nations will control that oil.
ohh which new government of iraq do you mean? the puppets we install and approve? and when exactly will this new iraqi government be allowed to run their own country? ahhhh yes thats right, when the US says they're ready.
In the big picture of things. Saddam had to be eliminated from power because he DID not answer to the United Nations. That racist moron in Korea will be next.
if the only justification needed for invading a country is an evil ruler and not answering to the UN we'll be spending the next 20 years at war, should be fun.
