Do you think George W. Bush ever loses sleep about the Iraq War?

    Trillions of dollars in the garbage but, much worse, nearly 5,000 American lives wasted.

    I wonder if that guy ever thinks what a mistake he made, while he's clearing brush just for fun on his non-working Texas ranch.

    Who knows if he does or not, he knows things about why he did what he did that you or I do not.

    Unfortunately it all could have been avoided had Sadaam simply allowed unfettered inspection instead of kicking the inspectors out.

    One good thing was that he did it despite the UN which opposed it to protect the illegal trade being engaged in by by various members and foreign heads of state.

    I guess in the end if you have a sworn enemy who is working to build a wmd arsenal and won't allow inspections, and sanctions don't work because the thieves in the UN ignore them for personal profit, what choice do you have?

    What is particularly interesting is that the entire world's intelligence community agreed that there was an active wmd program underway. The very unfortunate thing involved the fact that the Clinton administration had gutted the CIA so we had no worthwhile intelligence. I guess when it all comes down to it you can easily say that 9/11 and the Iraq war was caused by Bill Clinton.

    You're kidding, right?

    Halliburton and several other companies should build statues of GWB. He made a lot of Americans very rich.

    5000 Americans killed? And? They would have died anyways. Sometimes you need to crack a few eggs to accumulate significant wealth.

    This is true. Sadaam should have known that you don't give a military industrial complex even a hint of a reason to go to war.

    Do you ever lose sleep over the fact that you're a liberal, and everything you stand for makes this world a worse place?

    That money was put to good use feeding soldiers and buying bullets, and Obama has printed that Trillion back anyway and given it to his lieberal supporters, didn't you get any? It doesn't matter anyway, America is over.

    Right. It is essential that third-world dictators not goad us into war. Our prosperity and the lives of our children depend on third-world dictators acting responsibly. How can we not sacrifice trillions of dollars and thousands of lives whenever some two-bit tyrant rattles his sabre? :upeyes:

    The US is like Pavlov's dog with tanks.

    Only 5,000? Over 10 years of war? Be glad the casualties weren't comparable to WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam. I'd say we did really, really well for only having 5,000 casualties over 10 years. Granted, it's 5,000 more than there should be, but it's nowhere near as bad as it could've been.

    Given the number of Tier 1 terrorists and intel recovered in Iraq, President Bush saved thousands of U.S. civilian lives that would have been killed on U.S. soil, maybe even your life. Given that he did the right thing, he still cannot sleep well at night with the loss of even one U.S. soldier on his mind. That goes with the territory. It's part of being President.

    I am sure that a lot of people who glean all of their information from the internet, college professors and U.S. news agencies will now start their attack on my post. Spending one week on vacation in Egypt or Lebanon will not give you the same perspective as many who have been deployed in hostile areas for extended periods of time. Watch BBC World News, Al Jazeera D.C. Bureau, subscribe to overseas newspapers, etc. and get the perspective of overseas reporters in addition to those who have been there and done that.

    Freedom is not free, someone always has to pay for that Freedom, and the fight is best fought off U.S. soil.

    To answer your question directly, I am sure that President Bush and President Obama do not sleep well at night.

    I would let this video and the fact that on the occasions that he went to Dover and met with the families it was all off camera.

    If you watch closely you can see him palming his command coin to everyone he shook hands with. He didn't make it a big to-do like the current CiC does...

    Do you think Bill Clinton ever loses sleep over not getting Bin Laden when he had the chance (multiple times BTW) and could have potentially stopped 9/11?
