Say one thing for President George W. Bush. When it comes to war, he sticks to his guns.
He called for war with Iraq because Saddam Hussein was supposedly harboring weapons of mass destruction. Remember?
When an American inspector said there were no weapons of mass destruction, George Bush said uh uh, they really were there and we had to send in troops to find them.
When the troops discovered there was nothing to find, the reason we were in Iraq changed. We were there to topple Saddam Hussein.
When Saddam toppled, the reason became that we were fighting Al Queda. Nevermind that there hadn’t been an Al Queda in Iraq until we jumped in there.
Oh, and now we’re there to give Iraq democracy. Well, they’re not exactly interested in democracy, but we’re there to give them stability.
Stability? Saddam Hussein gave them stabililty.
Now we’re up to our necks in an Iraqi morass. The nation is broke because Genius George cut taxes and started a war in almost the same breath. So what does he want to do? He wants to invade Iran.
First the reason was that Iran was building nukes. Now our own intelligence says the Iranians discontinued their nuke program four years ago.
So now the excuse is, Iran wanted to build nukes before they decided not to build nukes.
Or if that doesn't work, the excuse is that Iran could build nukes if they ever decide to.
The same could be said of Uganda, Norway, Latvia, Poland, Ghana, Japan, Brazil, South Africa, and just about any other nation you could name. Not to mention a very bright kid in a basement somewhere. So what’s different about Iran? George Bush feels like starting a war with Iran, that’s what’s different.
His philosophy of national security got articulated on this blog a while ago. It’s time to reiterate his brilliant philosophy:
“We won’t be safe ‘till everybody’s dead.”
