Please Pass The Democracy

"It's like butta"- Babara Streisand

[In October, Duelfer released a preliminary report finding that in March 2003 -- the United States invaded Iraq on March 19 of that year -- Saddam did not have any WMD stockpiles and had not started any program to produce them] (cnn, left wing rag.)

Let's face it. Invading Iraq was a dumb idea. And I'm not just some "I told ya so" kind of critic. I was against this invasion from the start. From the very beginning, from even before we invaded. The case was never made. It was a mistake.

Most of the people who voted for Bush believed the following:

Saddam has weapons of mass destruction.

Saddam plans on using these weapons against the US.

Saddam played a major role in the 9/11 attacks.

These are all lies. And just because people believe them, doesn't make them true. And just because we now change our war aims from defending ourselves, and retribution for 9/11, to "spreading democracy" doesn't justify our actions either.

We shouldn't be there.
