I agree, both parties voted for the Iraqi War. However, neither Congress nor the American people were allowed to have enough actual facts to form a reasonable opinion by the GW Bush administration. Heck, if you even raised any kind of objections (such as the French did) you were called unpatriotic or cowardly (or even both). Unfortunately the patriotic “Hero” types were wrong. Dead wrong, to over 4,000 of our young people, and their families.
On top of that it has since become very apparent that the administration at that time had absolutely no idea of just what we were getting into. When it comes to the religious fanaticism of the Middle East, perhaps the best policy is to “do nothing”, and stay out of such quagmires!!
