I know Bush couldnt have said that but the least he could of done was admit he was wrong. In the case of Saddam admitting it Ill bet you 50 bucks nobody would have believed him, they didnt just before the war so why would they have believed him 6 years ago. As for interests in the reigion, I understand initial investment by the government but if it ends up that in 20 years the oil and other resources is still owned 100 percent by foreign investment then I believe it will appear that Bush was in it for the oil Im afraid.

I agree there is a big riff in between the countries of the UN but they do it to themselves

1.America owes a large debt to the UN and refuses to pay it back yet the United Nations is in New York and the building collects a lot of money from tourists for the state and country'

2.No WMD. The problem is not that there were none (I said it before it is good Saddam is gone) but the problem is now that the countries that refused it can say "I told you so" and a bigger rift is created

3.France lying about why it didnt want to go into Iraq, saying it was for peaceful reasons but they were maintaining and selling tanks to the Iraqis, now this is not bad as America has been selling weapons to enemies for years but the timing was horrible on the French side.

When i said interests it isnt just money its also security. With our presance growing in the mideast we can put more preasure on countires such as syria and lebanon to stop supporting terrorism. The bigger the influence we have over there i believe the more peaceful and prosperous the region will become

I absolutly agree with you and if we can establish security in this reigon and convince syris and lebannon to stop supporting terrorism then that will Leave a Legacy nobody can ever take away from him

As for terrorism if you truly want to stop it we must not just concentrate on Arab terrorists. What of skinheads, some militias in the states and Street gangs especially the Crips and Bloods, I believe if the American government truly wants to stop terrorism they have to go after these people too

I agree it is a bigger deal but not in the country of America. I think right now its most dangerous to soldiers posted outside of europe and North America as there is almost no sense of authority other than the soldiers and these terrorists are able to blend right back into the civilian population after an attack

Well there are none found YET, if they did this -www.snopes.com/photos/military/sandplanes.asp
and those where some basic planes that had little value in the overall war,
How deep do you think the WMD is in the ground?

Thats a tough call about the depth. The problem is Saddam due to constant foreign military presence was never much of a fixed missle guy, he preferred to have mobile launchers that were harder to find and destroy. If there were some underground I dont think they would be that deep cause there is only so far you can go down and still make a lab a viable financial option.
