Also, the islamic extremist terrorists you are now fighting were not in iraq when you first invaded - you drew them in.
Saddam Hussein was a non-religious terrorist and thug, he had nothing to do with 9/11.
You invaded iraq under the manufactured pretext that he had nuclear weapons, which (as Hans Blix clearly informed eveyone) he didn't.
The invasion of iraq has only inflamed the islamic extremist movement.
You are quite right there; I donīt know where you hail from, but being British I can say that I was all in favour of the initial war. However, and a HUGE however, it soon became crystal clear that good old Tony Blair was doing the thing many politicians do: lying through his rictus of death, as he did for everything. He was directly responsible, along with his spin doctors, of lying and misleading not just Britain, but the entire world.
Like the rest of the breed, he could never admit to a mistake and reap the reward of basic honesty. How could he? You have to have that basic quality first. I have always believed that people who seek office are, by definition, the very ones who should be denied it.
Whether the photographs we are shown work or do not is too subjective to call; as has ben said, there has to be a direct emotional involvement for them, or similar ones, to have meaning.
You get the government you deserve; if you vote for people that offer the freebie life-style where everything you want is paid for by somebody else, then thatīs what you get. As there seem now to be more free-loaders than not, I see it being the socialists for ever.
