Color me not surprised that the electorate is nowhere near as conservative as the media portrays it to be. A Majority want weed legalized. A majority are pro women’s rights to choose. A majority by far if the question is universal, single payer health care are for it. A majority are against the severe conservative nature of the  Read More...

The official death toll of 4488 Americans doesn't include the contractors and mercenaries killed who were hired by the Bush admin. to do jobs normally done by the military. The true death toll is higher.

"Majority View Invasion As Mistake"

I don't.

It wasn't right, but it wasn't a mistake either. It did EXACTLY what it's architects intended for it to do.

It made a LOT of money for some very powerful wealthy individuals, who have way too much influence over congress.

So maybe Natalie Maine and the Dixie Chicks are owed a big time apology for the rethugikans and baggers....oh wait they still think it was a good idea. So many deaths and injuries for no good reason. Now of course we won't take care of them. What a great country.....NOT

Ask the folks in Iraq who are now free if they're happy. My son spent 6 years fighting both wars and has told numerous stories of how the Iraqi's thanked the soldiers on a daily basis for making their lives so much better. How they're kids could now go to school and they could feel so much safer. It is a shame that the left is not behind our soldiers for putting their lives on the line and for the lives that were lost to help bring democracy to that country and Afghanistan. My son also told me how the media refuses to report on all the good things that have happened thanks to the United States and that they only report on the bad stuff.

Hey I'm a disabled Vietnam veteran and an ex marine. There were no good things to come from Vietnam and none that came from Iraq either I applaud your sons' service and I hate to pull rank but ask him about it all again in 10 years I'm guessing he will see things a little differently

Yes, it is all coming up roses in Iraq. I thank your son for his service. But we were taken into that war under false pretenses. The reasons that W took us in kept changing as they were proved false. The real reason that we went in was w thought it a great time to get rid of Saddam. He could have just stated that and dispensed with the WMD'S and all the other false reasons. Oh, and before we get to giddy about how well it has turned out you do know that Iraq's new BFF is Iran. The Shia-Shia bond between those two countries is strong. But once again thank your son for his service. Just keeping it real.

Just remember, it was Bush's fault. The stupidest President, and the biggest liar of them all.
Even as of today, he can't count to five. And he still doesn't know how to spell his last name. And he still reads kiddy books for entertainment.

And not the Democrats in Congress who enables and supported it, and allowed it to be funded off books.

Not the 72% of Americans polled who supported it when it started.

How do you think that the 42% that did not believe the Iraq war was a mistake voted in November?

The key is to get rid of those elected leaders who didn't view it as a mistake THEN and elect people who thought it was a mistake at the time. Sadly, I am not running this go around, so you're going to have to find someone else with actual abilities.

If there is a hell there is a special corner set aside for the bush cheney regime.

Those who started this war that caused no end of human suffering and expense should be held accountable and punished. Of course, they are powerful and it won't happen.

Does that include all the democrats that voted for this war?
10:46 AM on 03/18/2013
No, they were suckered by the cherry-picked intel. Cheney, Feith, Wolfowitz, and a bunch more GOP ChickenHawks are to blame for that scam.
10:50 AM on 03/18/2013
That depends. You'd have to break down the figure into those Dems who voted for a war, and those Dems who took the president at his word when he claimed that the resolution would give him a greater ability to apply pressure to Iraq short of war; that he'd do everything possible before going to war as a last resort. Instead, he took the resolution and jumped into war without any further efforts to resolve the matter peacefully. In other words, yet another lie.

If Bush travels to Europe, which he doesn't, cause he knows that there is a good chance that he would be arrested if he did, for war crimes. Just think, we have a former President that can't travel to Europe, cause he most likely would be arrested.

He cancelled his trip to Switzerland because of a threat for arrest. He has traveled to other countries but apparently avoids Europe for the following reasons that were stated in an article in the UK Guardian paper on 7 Feb. 2011
***
he organiser of the Bush visit, the United Israel Appeal, which helps Jews move to Israel, said the cancellation was to avoid any trouble from protesters, but the human rights organisations insist it was from fear of the arrest warrant.

In a joint statement, all the groups involved in seeking the prosecution of Bush said: "Whatever Bush or his hosts say, we have no doubt he cancelled his trip to avoid our case. The message from civil society is clear – if you're a torturer, be careful in your travel plans."

More than 60 human rights organisations and prominent individuals back the attempt to have Bush prosecuted.
