This is what I don't get for Non-Bush supporters.
-If we didn't go to war with Iraq, or Afganistan, and an attack took place anywhere in the world, you would all blame Bush.
Afganistan is okay, they were involved in the attack on the US. Iraq had nothing to do with it, Sadam was bad just not the one who attacked us
-Why? Because he didn't do his action in the Middle East.
You are being way to general, this is a terrorist issue not a middle east issue
-Imagine Saddam with nukes? Imagine his sons with nukes?
Imagine all you want, they did not have them and Bush knew that, if they did it would be a different story
-Give the guy a break
Why? What has he done for me? Did he give the average american a break, no he allowed our jobs to leave our schools to fail and our states to go broke all for oil and special interest
-He freaking is doing a good job.
By whos standards is this a good job? His intelligence is out of control, he has not helped the economy except where he changes the rules about how the numbers are reported, he uses God as an excuse and does not care about our image in the rest of the world, I thought this was supposed to be a more united world, it was before Bush
-He is himself
Okay you win that, I lived in Texas during his reign there and you are right, he is no different. Still a spoiled little rich boy with very very grand plans and opinions of himself.
-And last of all, how are you going to take a threat from a terrorist group if you were threathed to be nuked? sit back and wait? No, you attack.
Yep you are right, no aurguments here. But Iraq did not have nukes and did not threaten us.
-Just like in the game "Command And Conquer: Zero Hour" I am Always America Air Force, facing the GLA(Terrorist Group).
Um okay, video games are like real life how???
-Raptor's got the air, Commanche's got the ground. EMP patriots got the base defence, and Aurora, F117 and B2 bomb there buildings.
-Why don't they attack me? Because I keep bombing there supply lines, take out black market, destroy there training camps. Why do I lose no buildings? Because I attack. Not defend.
Again, life is like a video game how? Keep in mind you kill CGI characters, we bombed real people
-Like the ever so pouplar saying. "A good defence is a good offence"
Absolutely, Afghanistan proved that we are willing to take care of problems, Iran and N. Korea are far more threats to us then Iraq, they have the bomb, they are as radical or more so then the Iraqi regime. Why not them?
## Don't whine about Bush, If you voted for him ##
Did not then, will not now. I actually had some hope for him in the begining. Compassionate conservative sounded good, republicans are good at keeping government small, etc. He is radical and history will prove it

even we don;t know every thing which has been taken in to action. if you've got prototype weapons you have to test them really in a war situation. oil is old one because bush just signed a bill a year ago to invest in new energy ways as hydrogen and fusion.

We went back to Iraq for the oil. Isn't it obvious? The oil fields were the first to be siezed. The oil fields were the first to be repaired. And the oil fields were then taken over by private and commercial civilian groups with ties to the White House.
Oddly enough, I'm still paying $1.80 a gallon. Sucks when you drive 40 miles one way to work every day.

It is what is not done that I find very interesting. The museum was not protected but was emptied; the damaged artifacts were the replica artifacts not the originals so someone knew what they were doing when sacking the museum.
Isn’t the whole oil issue a distraction?

The reason we went to war was because of the PNAC. Most of the top officials in the administration, including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Richard Perle are apart of the group. In 1998, they planned the war, and tried to convince Clinton to carry out their plans (newamericancentury.org...). The Bush Administration lied to us about Sadam having weapons of mass destruction, and now they blame everything on an "Intelligence Failure".
