Even more proof

As if we needed more proof about the unjustification for invading Iraq, here comes more from Spain…

The Spanish newspaper El Pais (The Country) published a transcript in today’s edition that details a discussion between President Bush and Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar in February 2003. In the discussion, Bush told Aznar that the U.S. would go to war with Iraq to disarm Saddam Hussein with or without a UN resolution, saying; “We must take him right now. We have shown an incredible degree of patience until now. There are two weeks left. In two weeks we will be militarily ready.”

Aznar reportedly asked Bush to “have a little patience,” avowing that it would be “very important to have a [UN] resolution.” But Bush, ever the egotist, wouldn’t hear of it, and told Aznar; “We will be in Baghdad by the end of March.”

Days later, on March 6, 2003, in an address to the American public, Bush said; “: “I’ve not made up our mind about military action. Hopefully, this can be done peacefully.”

Two days after that, Bush lied through his teeth spun it again, saying; “We are doing everything we can to avoid war in Iraq. But if Saddam Hussein does not disarm peacefully, he will be disarmed by force.”

I think we all know what Bush did after that… he ignored internatioanl outcry… he ignored the UN… he ignored the incredible lack of WMD’s… and he ignored the American people and invaded Iraq…

Even to this day, Bush continues to lie through his teeth assert that the U.S. “did not choose war — the choice was Saddam Hussein’s.”

I doubt it George…the choice was yours and yours alone. And once again we see proof that your mind was made up about invading Iraq well before the UN got involved.

Whatever the reason for invading was, whether it be to atone for his father’s mistakes with Hussein… an attempt to outdo his father… his own personal wet dream… or simply a quest to become a new Charlamange… Bush pushed the U.S. into an unjust and unneccesary war.

And yet, some lemmings conservatives still think the war was justified…
