In retrospect do you support the Iraq war?
I was against Iraq from get go. I am appalled at the deceptions that were made, the ever shifting reasons that we were fed, from "something to do with 9-11" to "wait, wait, let's create the impression Saddam has WMDs" to "Saddam has 'something' to do Al Quida" to "well, it's a dictator, let's get rid of this one dictator right here" to "we are promoting democracy"
I honor the troops. The troops did not decide to start this war. The troops served honorably under horrific conditions.
But, the leaders who were feeding us info that they KNEW was false,
that just makes my head spin.
It's one thing to make mistakes. It's hard to imagine sending so many troops to their death over mistaken info,
real real hard to imagine.
but, there is a lot of evidence they KNEW the info they were telling us as "The (current) Reason" to go to war, WAS NOT TRUE. There were extensive efforst to silence, or discredit anyone who knew it was bogus info, or accuse them of not "being patriotic".
it was ghastly to watch.
