So what exactly was the end game supposed to be oh great Bush and Cheney?
At the time we invaded, I distinctly remember that if you were against the war, you were against the US. If anyone dared to question the policies of the Bush administration at that time, they were met with stiff public outcry. Anyone recall how fast the Dixie Chicks dropped from the face of the earth?
10 years later, thousands of people dead, and trillions wasted on a lie.
I am still against the war we waged in Iraq, and will always be ashamed that we invaded another country with information that was knowingly false.
Bush wanted Saddam gone. I think we can read between the lines on that. He could have just told us he wanted regime change. The whole world got one thing it wanted when Saddam was hanged .....and it leaked out onto the Internet for all to see.
