Show some FACT based evidence that Iraq was planning to attack U.S., feel free to search the Net as long as you want, and oh, I don't mean quoting Fox News morons!
... 5 hours after the 9/11 attacks, Donald Rumsfeld said “my interest is to hit Saddam”.
He also said “Go massive . . . Sweep it all up. Things related and not.”
And at 2:40 p.m. on September 11th, in a memorandum of discussions between top administration officials, several lines below the statement “judge whether good enough [to] hit S.H. [that is, Saddam Hussein] at same time”, is the statement “Hard to get a good case.” In other words, top officials knew that there wasn’t a good case that Hussein was behind 9/11, but they wanted to use the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to justify war with Iraq anyway.
Moreover, “Ten days after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, President Bush was told in a highly classified briefing that the U.S. intelligence community had no evidence linking the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein to the [9/11] attacks and that there was scant credible evidence that Iraq had any significant collaborative ties with Al Qaeda”.
Talk is cheap, most senators and congressmen on both side of the isle were saying the same thing, so what? Talk is CHEAP! But he who acts on the talk is the GUILTY party. Read and LEARN!!
"...But the Downing Street memo, combined with other reports, suggests that it was in June 2002—still nine months before the invasion started, and still at a time when President Bush was telling the public that war was a "last resort"—that the die was cast."

Oh my! Fox did stuff you with a mouthful, didn't they?!! But seriously, stop projecting your own miserable life onto others. It's like you're looking into the mirror describing your life. Stop talking, you're making a fool out of yourself, it's embarrassing; it reminds me of the Republican presidential candidates, the more they opened their trap, the more they made a fool out of themselves. See a pattern here? You're all talking like Fox News!....lol
No idiot, you have a short vocabulary; consult with your teachers at Fox before opening that trap; maybe they have more garbage you can stuff your mouth with!
And the source of your information is? Let me guess; could it be Fox News?
Now, who is the stupid "one-liner" answer giving idiot? You got it, moron! You Republicans have shortcomings everywhere!!....lol
Well, at least Obama's speeches didn't waste 3000+ priceless US military soldiers' lives for no good reason at all, and all based on lies, as GWB's speeches did.
And that's just the human cost of GWB's legacy, read and learn. They don't teach you these things on Fox News, do they?

"... Do you realize how stupid they must feel now..." Why don't you ask them instead of assuming, moron?!
Besides, I rather be called "Stupid" than "Republican". The name "Republican" turns my stomach, especially after watching what GWB did to this country, and after watching your A-Team presidential candidates debate last election, what a circus act!! But you idiots never learn; just keep watching The Fox News and get educated!
Can't wait to watch your Clown candidates perform their circus act again next election--Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Herman Cain. And add to the list: Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz--God I hope they all try again!...lol
Yeah, The Dumb (Fox News Channel) and Dumber (the brain-washed viewers & supporters).
Don't waste your time. The Fox News Country already know it but are too proud (ashamed) to admit it...lol
Yeah add his name to the list of countless MORONS from GOP: Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, etc....lol
moniquemonicat, with all due respect, you're an idiot and have no clue. Republican party has done so much damage to this country going back to GWB. But this time they have done the most damage to their own party. There is no way in hell a Republican president gets elected anytime soon, you can take that to the bank! They thought they had the superstar line up last time to bat the Democrats, except they all turned out to be Clowns performing in a circus act, remember their debates? What a JOKE!
