Saving for posterity...just sayin'

Besides some of the negatives (like some dumb tweets) I'm getting what I voted for.  I wanted an outsider who was willing to change the old status quo Washington and (GOP) and take care of the nasty,

That's your fall back, I should've just posted that for you to save you some time.

I mean, sure, he turned the surplus into giant deficits, lied to the entire world so he could start a war for no reason which is something that region has yet to recover from, tore up the North Korean nuclear deal which allowed them to develop nuclear weapons, pushed for Medicare Part D with zero plan to pay for it when signed, curtailed civil liberties, blew up the economy, etc., but I could picture having a beer with him so he was alright.

yeah but he allowed the assault weapons ban to expire... hello? 2nd AMENDMENT

We all know Saddam Hussein was a very nice man and he would hurt a flea.   

So... and humor me... where did they find Saddam's plans for 9/11? You referred to 9/11 as the reason to go to war with Saddam, so, I would like you to back up that assertion with facts and evidence.

 

Where's your proof that Saddam was personally involved with the attacks of Sept 11th, 2001?

So you believe the war was not justified even after America was attacked and over 4,000 people lost their lives?  There was an attack on the Pentagon (the place where my brother worked).  Sorry but I have a hard time understanding why you would even say this!!

If history serves me correctly, Iraq was attacked for failing to comply with UN regulations.   

That's not what you posted on the last page.

  • Iraq's noncompliance with the conditions of the 1991 ceasefire agreement, including interference with U.N. weapons inspectors.
  • Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction, and programs to develop such weapons, posed a "threat to the national security of the United States and international peace and security in the Persian Gulf region."
  • Iraq's "brutal repression of its civilian population."
  • Iraq's "capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction against other nations and its own people".
  • Iraq's hostility towards the United States as demonstrated by the 1993 assassination attempt on former President George H. W. Bush and firing on coalition aircraft enforcing the no-fly zones following the 1991 Gulf War.
  • Members of Al-Qaeda, an organization bearing responsibility for attacks on the United States, its citizens, and interests, including the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, are known to be in Iraq.
  • Iraq's "continuing to aid and harbor other international terrorist organizations," including anti-United States terrorist organizations.
  • Iraq paid bounty to families of suicide bombers.
  • The efforts by the Congress and the President to fight terrorists, including the September 11, 2001 terrorists and those who aided or harbored them.
  • The authorization by the Constitution and the Congress for the President to fight anti-United States terrorism.
  • The governments in Turkey, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia feared Saddam and wanted him removed from power.
  • Citing the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, the resolution reiterated that it should be the policy of the United States to remove the Saddam Hussein regime and promote a democratic replacement.

 

There's your reasons. That's from the Iraq War Resolution.

 

Bush was mad because Saddam wasn't nice to his daddy, plus, oil...

Iraq was invaded because the CIA believed a source codenamed 'Curveball' without question. Curveball told them that Hussein had an active chemical weapons program that couldn't be detected since the labs were in vans (lmao), that he was buying yellow cake, and that they were right around the corner from at least building a dirty bomb. French and German intel said this source was unreliable but thankfully the CIA was competent enough to ignore them and brave patriots showed them by calling calling french fries 'freedom fries,' and boycotting French wine by buying that wine and pouring it out.

The Bush administration then went around parroting what Curveball told them, including this doozy where Colin Powell brought anthrax into the UN:

... to build up their "Coalition of the Willing." They then invaded Iraq, found nothing, and then Curveball admitted that he made everything up.
