The US government lied to the UN, it's people, and the world to justify their war.
The UN didn't sanction the war.
The war was therefore illegal.
Two US presidents and a wannabe US president isn't "pretty much everyone", it's a collection of US presidents. Bush said Saddam was a clear and imminent threat to the US, something the vast majority of people around the world thought was a lie, and indeed turned out to be a lie.
No they didn't. rusting 10 year old ordinance from pre 1992 was all they found.
But Bush said, time and time again, that Iraq was a clear and imminent threat to the US.
You're kidding right? You think if current, usable WMD were found in Iraq it would somehow be missed by the entire world's media? And are you calling the likes of Fox news liberal?!?!
In real democracies politicians have to argue their case with a real live opposition. They also have to face real, aggressive, political interviews. They have talk in front of hostile audiences. The fact the US presidents don't seem to have to do any of these things appears to be a fatal flaw in the US political system, which leads to failed businessmen with zero political acumen becoming president. Seriously, do you think that out of 280 million Americans, Bush was really the best qualified person to do the job?
Sorry? Are you living on the same planet as the rest of us? The vast majority in EVERY european country opposed the war.
Retarded doesn't mean mental illness. It means subnormal development relative to the norm. Maybe you don't see it, but the rest of the world does.
If Bush isn't bad for the US reputation, how do you explain all these "bush bashing" threads you complain about?
Like you say, you have you opinion and I have mine. I hope for your sake the US remains as free as you seem to think it is. Right now you are one of the least free countries in the western world.
