You forgot that Bush never paid one dime for the Iraq War. That's right, the total cost of the Iraq War was just added to the national debt. It is pretty easy to declare war when you send somebody else's kids over to fight it and you pass on the cost of the war to future generations. The real shame is that Ben Laden was the culprit, and Iraq had nothing to do with terrorist attacks on our country. If you did a little research, you would find that Saddam was not religious at all and he had no time for religious terrorists like Ben Laden. By taking Saddam out and then totally destroying Iraq's military structure, GW opened up Iraq to the terrorists. And don't forget how Bush let Al-Sader go to Iran after his cronies killed numerous American troops. If Iraq falls, you can bet Al-Sader will be a big part of it.
