Why Bush is Wrong

Bush Tried to defend invading Iraq. What makes Bush so very wrong is the meaty quote he uses:
"Although we have not found stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction, we were right to go into Iraq," Bush told lab employees assembled in an auditorium. "We removed a declared enemy of America who had the capability of producing weapons of mass murder and could have passed that capability to terrorists bent on acquiring them. In the world after September the 11th, that was a risk we could not afford to take."
Why Bush is wrong is simple: he shows that Iraq was no threat to the USA. Iraq had no ability to provide WMD to anyone and with UN attention and if need be force, we could have avoided killing thousands of people and toppled Saddam from within. There was no need to invade when we did, other than politics maneuvering.

What is the bottom line? The ends do not justify the means. The means of fighting this war were forged out of choice, not out of necessity. This basic concept is the foundation for every credible argument being made against the Iraq war, and it has not been answered by BushCo or any of its supporters.

I now will wait for the attacks: “do you want Saddam back in power?” “Do you support the terrorists?” There are other talking points that will be put back at a me, but none of them will address my point, that the ends do not justify the means.

We will get the WMD bullshit again by someone, “they found weapons, no really they did.” Sorry, folks, anything found was at a best left over junk someone found in by chance and used it with no effect, because the WMD was do degraded that it was not a significant danger.

If anyone really tries to play the Iraq-Al Qaeda, I will just laugh. That person is just never going to believe that they were lied to by the Bush Administration.

So, have at it, let the beatings begin.
