OK, prove its a lie? Congress voted on it, but that does not mean it wasn't a lie.
The video gives absolutely no proof of anything whatsoever. It's just a bunch of alleged retirees rattling off about their assumptions. Since not a single one of them gave the information to the President, they are in no position to comment on it's validity.

If this video or any other could prove that President Bush lied to go to war, we wouldn't be having this discussion. Bush would have been impeached and out of office already.

Really? Bush said himself that they were no WMD's.

So? In the same speech, Bush says that Iraq had the capability to build WMDs.

My statement stands...if you could prove he lied just to go to war, we wouldn't be having this discussion. Bush would have been impeached, convicted and out of office.

"Trying to get Bush impeached". The battle cry of the inept. They've been "trying" for going on eight years, and they have yet to show any results.

They will not be successful. They have no proof, and they don't have the cojones to force it to an issue.

Bush will walk out of office at the end of his term, and all the posturing and bickering and blustering these groups have done will be for naught.

well now this is almost the most stupid remark i have yet to hear about the war. Capabilities? So now the US is going to police the world simply because countries have "capabilities"? This is going to be a tall order,the draft might just need to be reinstated ,,,and soon.
That war was begun just for exactly the reason that is happening right now. US invasion. Saddham would never have allowed our military to move in and westernize his country.He would never have allowed those big major US construction companies to come in there. He would never have allowed US influence and control over politicians in his country. He HAD to be put down, not just down,but DEAD,he knew too much trash on US politicians and deals,remember his past involvement with the US.

And the liberals and democrats followed up on that statement by Bush with what action? And they did what to end the war and take Bush out of office?

Nothing. Liberals and dems have done nothing but talk. As I said, no cojones. All their posturing, bickering and blustering about Bush is a waste of time, because it hasn't, and won't change a thing.

And if you expect sympathy for Saddam on any front, you are destined for disappointment.

Finally, yep...I'd rather take dictators and terrorists out while they only have capability to build WMDs than wait until they have WMDs stockpiled.
The video is of ex-CIA analysts saying Bush manipulated the evidence. The CIA was not saying they had proof Saddam had any WMD yet Bush portrayed it as a "slam dunk." A Phrase even ex-CIA Chief George Tenet is backing away from. If you can't see you were lied too then it's because you don't want to see it.

Bush and Cheney set up a special team on Iraq that by passed normal channels and "cherry picked" information that backed up what they wanted and disregarded evidence that showed they were wrong. Cheney went to the CIA and pressured them to "re-evaluate" their information, as ex analyst David Michaels is saying when he points out that CIA head quarters are in Langly Virginia and not Washington, DC. As he points out it was to keep politics out of intelligence.

The War is illegal because it was not sanctioned by the UN. At the end of WW2 the world decided to live by International law. The US is a member of the UN and bound by its charter. All Nations are bound by International Law. One of the charges against Germany after WW2 was wars of aggression.

The evidence that the Bush administration lied has been gathered by various journalists, ex-Federal prosecutors, lwyers and Historians. The congress will not act for political reasons as Nancy Pelosi says, "Impeachment is off the table." The speculation is they believe the war will sink the republicans in 2008 and the democrats will take the White House and Congress.

The people must demand that we hold our leaders accountable and demand that impeachment investigations begin. When the evidence is presented before the American people they will demand impeachment.

The corporate media are huge corporations that promote the interests of corporations and the "corporate class." They gave us 24/7 of Clinton impeachment and "Monica TV," yet even though more people now support the impeachment of Bush then Clinton the Corporate media are silent. They sold us this war along with the Bush bunch and the democrats, they are "co-conspirators."

Dictatorship? Nope, not hardly. Not in your dreams or worst nightmares. World's dictatorship? Not hardly. Both houses of Congress voted and approved attacking Iraq. Can't have a dictatorship unless the decision rested on one person and one person only. And that isn't the case.

Whatever it takes to keep WMDs out of the hands of dictators and terrorists works for me. As long as terrorists keep being prevented from attacking here on US soil, and killing US citizens.

In today's realm of terroristic attacks, you had better get used to needing to police the world, or get used to praying five times a day while kneeling on a rug and facing Mecca.

"Whatever it takes to keep WMDs out of the hands of dictators and terrorists works for me. As long as terrorists keep being prevented from attacking here on US soil, and killing US citizens."

I laughed when I read this. Not a laughing matter but I still laughed. You have no real grasp of the cost of this war that was a lie. ALMOST 4,000 American lifes. Hundred of 1,000's of Iraqi lives. You scream "terrorists", and you have no idea what that really means. I can't even think there are people like you to think this war is worth it. It's so funny how we invaded Iraq, but we don't bother with the other 30 evil dictators in the world that kill 1,000's of there people every year. IT'S NOT OUR JOB TO POLICE THE WORLD. Our fathers have warned us of this.

I was in the Iraq war from the very beginning. I was not frightened to be there other than the "threat" of chemical weapons. That's some scary sh**. After WE, the US Military found out there were none there, we sat there in the sand and said to ourselves WTF. Why are we here. Let's leave right now. We get attacked EVERYDAY, I have lost friends for NO REASON!!! People like you are the reason I hate this government. You are brainwashed and you have no idea. Once you do your research and get out and talk to people your mind will change. We are still there because of cookie eaters like you that will no get off there butt and read and research. People like you make me sick. I think of my buddies that won't come home to there wife and kids every time I hear from sick people like you. Maybe you should do the same.

So, whatever it takes huh? I suggest you watch the movie "V", now showing on your local cable channels. Another suggestion, rent the movie "Wag The Dog", starring Dustin Hoffman. I can't believe you would actually give up your freedom for security. What is it about conservatives that they would be willing to give up their freedom to live under a police state, the new world order? Why is it conservatives support corporations controlling government? I just don't understand the conservatives point of view. Maybe you can break it down for me.

Liberal spin about the number of soldiers kiled doesn't make the war in Iraq any less important. Maybe you don't have a concept of what a terrorist is...I do. As far as the "other 30 evil dictators", Iran is a starting place, yet liberals howl in anguish over mere sanctions there. And I don't know what your father warned you of, because mine certainly told me to be sure to defend myself and my family, whatever it takes.

Keep spinning your liberal lies about "no concept" and "no reason". It won't wash now or later. Use your oldest battle cry, "brainwashed"...it's about worn out. Throw in a little "you make me sick" so that I know that you actually have no argument. Maybe then some of the other liberals will give you a "great post" or "well said" to boost your ego.

Have a nice day Big Grin

And you are doing exactly the same by sensationalizing the fear of fear, bringing focus to the Bush Administration's policy on terror and the implied horror of "giving up freedom for security". I've not given up any freedoms. Unless you are a terrorist, neither have you. There was no mention in my post of computer chips under the skin, or cameras in you home.

And if you think that a terrorist attack isn't a real threat, please let me refer you to 9/11/01.

Since you seem to not possess the basic knowledge of what a terrorist is, here in my definition.

Terrorist: A person or group of persons who engages in activities designed to elicit terror for a political, religious or idealistic reason. Typically terrorist acts are directed towards unarmed non-combatants, and may consist of an initial attack, followed up by threats or innuendo of continued attack, or may consist of many attacks related by type of attack, or victims, or locations.

My position is and has always been to locate, attack and destroy terrorists before they have an opportunity to attack the US. If that takes us being "police" and keeping track of the entire world, so be it.

Lets look at a few things:

1. North Korea attacked South Korea so we helped SK. Does that make us a dictator?
2. North Vietnam attacked South Vietnam so we helped SV. Does that make us a dictator?
3. Iraq attacked Kuwait so we helped Kuwait. Does that make us a dictator?
4. Iraq was in violation of the cease fire from #3, a known terrorist supporting state and we believed they had WMD's so we toppled the regime that we had handled with kid gloves for more than 12 YEARS. Does that make us a dictator?

We donate more money and goods to the worlds weakest, poorest and most downtrod than most all of the other country's in the world combined.

What exactly is it we do that is so bad??

Nope, your terminology is faulty. We would be establishing a dictatorship if we took over the country and made them follow our rules and laws. To date, that has not happened. Iraq elected their own leadership and drew up their own constitution.

Remaining vigilant and taking out terrorists does not a dictatorship make.

First, I would like to thank you for your service to our country! And I would also like to thank you for further defending our country with your words. It is a great comfort to me to know that we have people like you in our military! People would be wise to heed your words. Kind of like "straight from the horses mouth" if you ask me. Who better to know why we're supposed to be in Iraq? It's clear to me that you are on our side. And I would just like you to know that I'm on your side my friend! Thank you!
Did I say it was bad? i do not recall saying that.
but since you brought it up lets look to our very own country.
We are having poisioned toys shipped in here everyday for our children to play with,,nothing being done.
We have a huge problem with the influx of illegal immigrants, nothing being done
We have the largest debt this country has ever had,nothing is being done
we have less and less companies that maufacture ANYTHING in our own country,we just provide the hub for the business end,how stable is that?
The only time anyone is going to take a look around in THEIR OWN COUNTRY is when they cannot fillup their SUV, when they cannot flip their plastic out to purchase their goodies. Our country needs work within.
How safe are our borders? They are no safer than they were on 9/11. You nor i have no idea who or what is next in line to happen here ,because our borders have not been secured. If millions of Mexican illegals can get into this country so can a handfull of radical crazies.

well the draft MUST be reinstated, if the US is going to police the world,cuz we sure as h.ell do not have enough military do it now,,,since we are invading countries based on WHAT-IFs,maybes and possibilities. DANG i wish somebody had told me WE are the worlds dictatorship.


Dictatorship? Nope, not hardly. Not in your dreams or worst nightmares. World's dictatorship? Not hardly. Both houses of Congress voted and approved attacking Iraq. Can't have a dictatorship unless the decision rested on one person and one person only. And that isn't the case.

Whatever it takes to keep WMDs out of the hands of dictators and terrorists works for me. As long as terrorists keep being prevented from attacking here on US soil, and killing US citizens.

In today's realm of terroristic attacks, you had better get used to needing to police the world, or get used to praying five times a day while kneeling on a rug and facing Mecca.



"Whatever it takes to keep WMDs out of the hands of dictators and terrorists works for me. As long as terrorists keep being prevented from attacking here on US soil, and killing US citizens."

I laughed when I read this. Not a laughing matter but I still laughed. You have no real grasp of the cost of this war that was a lie. ALMOST 4,000 American lifes. Hundred of 1,000's of Iraqi lives. You scream "terrorists", and you have no idea what that really means. I can't even think there are people like you to think this war is worth it. It's so funny how we invaded Iraq, but we don't bother with the other 30 evil dictators in the world that kill 1,000's of there people every year. IT'S NOT OUR JOB TO POLICE THE WORLD. Our fathers have warned us of this.

I was in the Iraq war from the very beginning. I was not frightened to be there other than the "threat" of chemical weapons. That's some scary sh**. After WE, the US Military found out there were none there, we sat there in the sand and said to ourselves WTF. Why are we here. Let's leave right now. We get attacked EVERYDAY, I have lost friends for NO REASON!!! People like you are the reason I hate this government. You are brainwashed and you have no idea. Once you do your research and get out and talk to people your mind will change. We are still there because of cookie eaters like you that will no get off there butt and read and research. People like you make me sick. I think of my buddies that won't come home to there wife and kids every time I hear from sick people like you. Maybe you should do the same.


You need to change all the "WE"s in you rant to "I"s. I deal with thousands of Soldiers a year who would be completely embarrased by your comments. While your service is to be commended, it embarrases me that another member of the same Army I belong to would spew the crap you are spewing. By the way, you were there because your CiC told you to. If you can't or don't agree wtih that you need to get out of the military.

Since you seem to not possess the basic knowledge of what a terrorist is, here in my definition.

Terrorist: A person or group of persons who engages in activities designed to elicit terror for a political, religious or idealistic reason. Typically terrorist acts are directed towards unarmed non-combatants, and may consist of an initial attack, followed up by threats or innuendo of continued attack, or may consist of many attacks related by type of attack, or victims, or locations.

My position is and has always been to locate, attack and destroy terrorists before they have an opportunity to attack the US. If that takes us being "police" and keeping track of the entire world, so be it.



No offense Sassy, but it looks like the terrists have already beaten you. You might want to finish the definition. If we have to change one thing about our way of life, surrender just one freedom, or change one law, then that gives the terrorists a victory. Sadly, they've had many. And I'm sick and tired of it!

You always have to make some changes to your way of life to beat your enemy. Look what we had to do during WW2.

WHAT? Are soldiers not people too? Are soldiers not allowed to think? I'm sure some might sign up to be killing machines. But I'm also sure that some, and hopefully most, sign up to honorably defend their country! All I can say is thank God we've got people like mrbradg in OUR military! I also know that there's many, many more that share his view.

No offense taken. They've not beaten me, or by extension, the US, or we would be, as I said earlier, praying five times a day while kneeling on a rug, facing Mecca. They haven't won the war...just a battle or two.

My analogy is that if we continue as before 9/11, it would be like a boxer standing in the ring with his hands down at his sides. When threatened with attack, he has to start off by protecting himself, bringing his hands up to a defensive position, crouching and backing towards the ropes, and then looking for vulnerable points to attack the enemy. If he continues to stand erect without any defensive position, he'll eventually be annihilated.

If the US does not take a proactive approach towards eradicating terrorists, we'll suffer attacks like 9/11 forever.

Little out of context there. That was from before he was in office (Dec 2000) and was refering to a meeting with the Congressional leaders.

I never said he wasn't entitled to his opinion. His comment turned into a group sentiment with his continued use of "WE". He also made some very nasty comments concerning this country (ie, I hate this gov't) that aren't congruent with military service. He swore to follow the orders of the commanders above him. If he has an issue with that then he needs to get out. I will also stand by my statement that the large majority of Soldiers WOULD NOT agree with him.

PS. Why is it that so many people think that the only reason we went ot Iraq was WMD's? That was only one of many reasons that we went there.

Yeah, but he never said he hated this country! I can agree with him about THIS gov't. This government ain't working! Plain and simple. This government did give us the answer as to why anyone would want to attack us like they did on 9-11. One need look no further than Iraq!
