In the New York Times, Bush defended the war on Iraq despite having misled the country on his reasons for going to war
No weapons or means to produce them have been found yet Bush still insists that Iraq was a real threat. His statement about Iraq sponsoring terrorism is, to my knowledge, still without any supporting evidence. Indeed, terrorism seems to be a worse threat today than it was before we went to Iraq.
Don’t get me wrong, Saddam Hussein wasn’t a nice man but he appeared to be a contained threat. Instead we have traded a contained and easily identifiable threat for chaos and disorder.
How is this an improvement?
George Bush’s Iraq War was a mistake and it will be a mistake that we and our children pay for for a long, long time. Think about that when going to the polls next month.
