10 Years Later Progressive Liberals Try to Rewrite Iraq War

First of all let's remember this wasn't Bush's, Cheney's or Rumsfeld's Iraq war. :roll:

It was the response of the United States following the 9/11 terrorist attacks and approved by the Congress. :shock:

Least we forget... Democrats also encouraged and supported the White House to take military action against Saddam Hussein. :oops:

In the days following the 9/11 terrorist attacks the world for a moment stood together in solidarity and sympathy with the United States and the victims of this horrific incident. :cry:

Except Saddam Hussein who praised and congratulated Osama bin Laden and his Muslim terrorists. :twisted:

There is no doubt Saddam Hussein funded, trained, sheltered and supported terrorists. :evil:

There is no doubt Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. More specifically chemical and biological weapons. He used these against the Kurds and during the war with Iran. :evil:

There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein sought to develop and produce a nuclear weapon. :evil:

There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein was a threat to the region, and posed a clear and present danger to the United States, it's interests, allies and the rest of the world. :evil:

Immediately following the 9/11 attacks President Bush placed the world on notice. Leaders and nations could either join the fight against terrorism or continue to support terrorism at their own risk and peril. :shock:

The decision to "go to war in Iraq" was not a knee jerk political reaction taken by President Bush. The United States spent months trying to find some diplomatic solution. How many UN inspections, resolutions and warnings did Saddam Hussein choose to ignore? :roll:

The United States spent months discussing the situation with our allies and friends in the region. By all accounts many governments and intelligence agencies encouraged, supported and believed Saddam Hussein was a threat to the region and the world. :shock:

Given all this information and evidence against Saddam Hussein, President Bush made the best possible decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq. Our military objectives were clear and did not include executing Saddam Hussein. Remember he was captured, hiding like a coward in a spider cave and turned over to the newly formed Iraqi government for criminal trial. :shock:

The truth about the Iraq war is post 9/11 most elected politicians and governments realized the threat Saddam Hussein posed and weren't willing to risk the chance of doing nothing to stop him. :shock:

The cost of the war in Iraq was high, both in treasure and human life. But to ignore Saddam Hussein would have placed more innocent lives in danger than the thousands of hero's sacrificed to save them and the world from state sponsored global terrorism. 8-)
