We went to war because we were attacked, and we are at war today because there are still people out there who want to harm our country and hurt our citizens. Some may disagree with my decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power, but all of us can agree that the world's terrorists have now made Iraq a central front in the war on terror.
The people of Iraq didn't attack us! They had nothing to do with 9/11 -- even Bush admitted that when Kerry confronted him about a similar remark during the debates. And he's admitting that his unnecessary war has turned Iraq into a haven and breeding ground for terrorists. Good grief!
He also said this:
Our troops are fighting these terrorists in Iraq so you will not have to face them here at home.
The Iraqis were not going to come over here and attack us. They didn't attack us and they weren't planning to attack us so how can this statement make any sense at all? If anything, the war makes it more likely that we will be attacked in retaliation. You know, the Democrats need to take this stuff and run with it. But I'm not holding my breath.
