This war is just like the OJ Simpson trial. Remember that? OJ was on trial for killing his wife and a friend. Then, the trial turned into the "Mark Furhman trial", and his use of the "N" word. And OJ was found not guilty because Furhman was a racist. Doesn't matter that the overwhelming evidence pointed to his guilt.

Well - In the days following 9/11, the US embarked (and rightly so) on a "War on Terror". A year and a half later, the focus has shifted to Saddam Hussein, who has not been linked to the 9/11 attacks, but by golly, he's GASSED his own people and killed 300,000 Iraqi citizens. So, Saddam is partly responsible for 9/11 because he's a tyrant and he lied about destroying his weapons. Nevermind that our president's dad stopped his "Operation Desert Storm" when we were just a few miles from Saddam's palace... Now, we've got to take care of some unfinished business.

This towns not big enough for the both of us Bart - Sheriff Bush.

At behest of the UN, because our actions according to them were only "supposed to remove Iraqi forces from Kuwait, not topple Iraq"..... Insane

And on the advice of a lot of the current senior administration too 747-451.

But 747-451 - I thought that Congress authorized the use of force in the days following 9/11 to bring those responsible for the attacks to justice. Somehow - that authority got "OJ'ed" to attacking Iraq because the "might" provide terrorists with chemical weapons, and when it's pointed out that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, then the focus gets shifted to the "humanitarian" issue.
