Clinton did fire cruise missiles at terrorists, and I believe firing cruise missiles is an act of war.
Its a military action, not an all out war. Did we just lob a cruise missle at Japan.
The fact of the matter is this. We were allegedly attacked by Osama Bin Laden and his Al-Queda conspirators. 8 years later and we haven't caught Bin
Laden, and Al-Queda is still behind nearly every terrorist attack that happens. So we FAILED in our response to get those who got us. We attacked
Afghanistan to eliminate the Taliban and bring Democracy. 8 years later, and we have done neither. FAILED. We attacked a country not involved in 9/11
before we had caught the perps of 9/11 or those who harbored them. In Iraq, we were told:
We didnt fail. There has not been another attack on this country. Sure they have attacked weaker countries but not ours. So we did not fail. Saying
it was for Democracy is just some necessary BS to sell the idea to whiney liberals who cant fathom the idea of dying to protect their country, so you
have to make up something to ease their overly guilty conscience.
Though, I dont want to put words in Bushes mouth. That is my interpretation.
Greeted as liberators = Wrong
WMD's = Wrong
Al-Queda connections = Wrong
Mobile Chemical Weapons Labs = Wrong
Mushroom Cloud = Wrong
Yellow Cake Uranium = Wrong

We know where the WMD's are = Wrong
*Mission Accomplished = Wrong
Necesary BS to sell the war to whiney liberals except those things that are flagged.
We did take over the country in about 3 weeks. Cleaning out insurgency took years in other wars and happened long after victory was declared. Buy a
As far as Katrina goes I disagree with Bush. I wouldnt have given anyone a dime, just a pamphlet on how to buy Home Owners Insurance when you live in
a bowl surrounded by water. Maybe, if I was having a good day I wouuld have relocated them all to some field in South Dakota or something. A half a
trillion dollars spent on a town that is surrounded by water when the oceans are rising. But hey not everyone's perfect. Just nearly perfect.
NOW QUIT DUCKING MY QUESTION AND ANSWER UP!
