    More evidence that the US and UK decided way in advance that they were invading no matter what:

    It just goes to show how Blair completely ignored public opinion in the UK.

    Two months? George Bush had this planned for at least ten years.

    Some people (read: many republicans) would have us believe that Blair and Bush were being honest with teh international community at the time, but they mysteriously are staying away from this thread. ;)

    Can anyone say "UN inspectors"? :shake:

    At the exact time Hans Blix was saying to the world they could not find WMD and they needed more time, Bush and Blair were discussing how to invade whilst deceiving the international community in to thinking (1) Iraq had WMD (when they clearly knew they didn't exist) and (2) If Iraq would only be more reasonable they weren't going to attack.

    The saddest irony of all is that on the international scene no-one was even slightly impressed by the bs-spin and they went ahead anyway totally ignoring the international community.

    Iraq was such an obvious threat to everyone that we were willing to make up evidence to go to war with them! Just more proof that this is the most logical and consistent administration of all time.

    We should have invaded Iraq in 1991.
