The War In Iraq

Does anyone feel that Bush made a horrible mistake with sending troops to fight a war that should have never began in the 1st place? Jump on the bandwagon. Tell me your thoughts on this.

It shouldn't happen in the first place but looking back years ago, when Bush the father helped Kuwait in the fight against Iraq, it's inevitable that a Bush predecessor will initiate a war against Iraq. Even before his term as president, Bush had already mentioned "taking Saddam Hussein" out and suddenly diverted the issue into "taking the Iraqi government's deadly weapons". He might kept that in mind until the 9/11 attack reinforced what he had planned. It's clear that despite receiving UN condemnation and as well as strong opposition from France and Germany, Bush would still proceed with his plans. The failures in Iraq had only aggravated the situation not only in that region but in America and the Middle East as well. It's very impossible for the American troops to gain support from the the Iraqis because the Americans had helped Saddam's Baathist party in seizing control over Iraq decades ago. While it was true that Bush the father helped Kuwait against Iraq and eventually instigated the Iraqi civilians to stand up against Saddam, his administration had done nothing when Saddam slaughtered a large portion of the Iraqi population. Simply put, the Iraqis know their history too much that both Saddam and the Americans are treated as oppressors. Sending more troops had also undermined the new government of Iraq. the democracy Bush was talking about was actually a "democrazy"
