    Damn straight. Both Democratic and Republican party are complicit in that carnage... And now look what's happened. More terrorism than ever. Well done *******.

    At least Cheney and his corporate cronie mates got their oil and construction contracts, even if thousands of US soldiers had to die or get mutilated for it. I hope they think it was worth it because I sure don't.

    I suppose the phase that confounds most persons is the fact that, with a distinctive outstanding exception who will have had unterior explanations, all of us looked to be working together in concord, united in opposition to a original enemy, after which, all of the sudden, the individuals you so aptly described, went thoroughly partisan regularly trouble and put their own political ambitions ahead of the protection & security of the country. To make matters, worse, one of the Republicans began behaving like they were Democrats and had been spening money like a bunch of drunken liberals (sorry Uncle Teddy), and that used to be compounded through the President's refusal to undertaking the veto pen as as a rule as he will have to have. Now we have a obstacle the place the frontrunning candidate on the left is a famous and reputed criminal who, along together with her husband, not ever noticed a campaign contribution that they would not receive and who, alongside along with her husband, would sell their very souls (if in fact they came organized with souls) for a couple of bucks in bribes from the chinese govt. This harpie, and her fellow candidates, forgot their early professional-the united states stance and have suffered a convenience of reminiscence because it pertains to their earlier speeches and vote. On the opposite facet, now we have the erstwhile former mayor of recent York, who's mostly the one candidate on both aspect of the aisle with even a modicum of govt experience. He ain't perfect, however he's still the nice option available in the market.

    Now let me be clear: I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power.... The world, and the Iraqi people, would be better off without him.

    But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors...and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

    Facts, no matter how well recorded, how well researched, or provable by the scientific method, are trumped by the feelings and doctrine of the left.

    The Democrats wanted to murder Saddam and inflict genocide on Iraq. Republicans just wanted peace with Saddam, like here...

    But the liberals forced our military to murder innocent people. FACT.

    because (as you can see from most of the answerers here!) they can blame Bush and get away with it!

    It was none other than our own government solely who pushed us into the war. The people had nothing to do with it. It was all about oil. There is substantial evidence for this.
