The administration didn't fabricate the evidence. the idiot who gave the information did. As for the whole Al Quaeda and Saddam link, I honestly haven't done enough research to make any response to that one, so I'll just stay away from it. And you can't honestly say the world isn't a better place with Saddam Hussein dead. The war might not have been totally about killing him, but he died because of it, and the world is a much better place with him gone. Iraq might be temporarily worse, but that will most likely change in the next few years. Just gotta say one thing before I continue this argument. I am in no way saying those 3000 lives mean nothing. I know many people that have been personally affected by this war and who have expierienced terrible losses. War isn't a pretty thing. That said, in the civil war, we lost over 600,000 people, with over 200,000 of those being military members. And that was also in about four years. There have been greater losses. Again, no disrespect to those who have fallen, but the amount of lives lost has been extremely over publicized. Plus, there could have been less dead if we could get some agreement on BOTH sides on Capital Hill. As for the right being in power for those four years, that's an unfair argument for a simple reason: For probably the first 3 years of that period, most of America was just waiting to see how the war was going to pan out. It wasn't like everyone back then was saying "This war needs to stop now! End it!" like they are now. As we entered the fourth year, yeah, more resistance began to surface, but it didn't really boil over until a little before election time. Agreement was not reached, and I have a feeling it won't be reached until oh, say, February 2009. Nothing will be done with a Senate controlled by the left and a white house controlled by the right. That's another thing that could have been resolved with a little less "wahhhh, stop the war!" by the democrats, and a little more "Let's figure out what we can do to keep the right happy and still reach most of our goals." But I guess that's just a little too big of a concept for those amazing thinkers on Capital Hill to grasp, eh?
