Thread: "Bush started the war"

    Default "Bush started the war"

    "Bush started the war" ... to paraphrase Hillary from a recent debate.

    I have 2 problems with this.

    1. Hillary voted yes for the invasion.

    2. The west vs. Islamic Extremists has been going on for many many years and didn't start when we toppled Saddam.

    I feel GW was been a lousy leader and lacked insight. I voted against him twice.
    But to blame all of the ills of our modern world on Bush is purely a political move.

    Bush isn't the reason millions of religious radicals want to destroy western civilzation and fly the flag of Islam over our land.

    Remember when they attempted to bring down the WTC the first time?
    It was during Clinton's presidency.

    Let's keep our eye on the ball and not be so simple to believe that electing a democrat will bring peace on Earth.

    "Bringing our boys home" won't stop the death to America mentality that exists through many parts of the world.

    It won't end the war.
    It may stop the death of our soldiers in Iraq, but it wont stop the killing in the name of radical Islam.

    I would love to vote Democrat, but they need to tell me how they will address the middle east situation.

    Simply bashing Bush won't do it for me this time.

    1. Hillary voted yes for the invasion.

    No. Hillary voted to give Bush the power to declare war if it was
    necessary to do so, under the condition that Bush would not declare war
    until all other possibilities were exhausted. Essentially Hillary signed a blank
    check for Bush, assuming that he would not take advantage of it. Hillary,
    and many other of the Democrats, were not very wise in doing so.

    You seem to be blurring the war on terrorism with the war on Iraq, exactly
    as Bush and Cheney did when they to push for the war in Iraq. They were
    two separate things, but now maybe they are becoming one thanks to the
    way the Iraq war was handled.

    This has nothing to do with Saddam Hussein.

    I agree that it is not about Republican or Democrat. It is about electing
    a wise leader who is going to act in the best interest of the people. People
    like Bush and Cheney were not good choices, and they have had too
    much support among Republican politicians. But I do not accuse all
    Republicans of this. At least McCain had the balls to challenge the Bush
    administration on a few things, so I respect him.


    "Bringing our boys home" won't stop the death to America mentality that exists through many parts of the world.


    Agreed. But that is not to say that keeping them there is in our best
    interest either. It's a very difficult situation that we never should have
    got ourself this deep into.
