Don't let Bush rewrite history

Saddam DID let the inspectors in and they were finding no weapons of mass destruction. The longer they stayed, the less likely the excuse of WMDs and mushroom clouds would work as a reason for war.

Bush was the one who pulled the IAEA inspectors out of Iraq. The Bush administration declared war a few days later.

It was a war of acquisition.

Fraught with dangers that our Texas oil men ignored. They were going for the big prize.

To quote Eisenhower:
Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.
