As one who took the position that people who commit crimes against humanity should be punished, I wanted the UN to get Saddam. Given france and Germany's refusal, I was glad that Bush went in and got the person who committed genocide--Saddam. I await his trial. However, I did believe that Saddam held weapons of mass destruction. Bush misled me. Yet, Saddam himself was a weapon of mass destruction.

If that qualifies me as a Hitlerite in your eyes, so be it...

However,I am startled by the ineptitude of Bush and his regime. They ignored our State Dept.'s warnings against looting, and they did not have enough troops to even guard the ammunition dumps--as the State Dept. predicted. They constantly flip-flop over whether to use Baathists to achieve security, and they demonized General Clarke when he said that there weren't enough troops to maintain security.

Worst of all, Bush's rational that Iraq posed threat to the US was nonsense. They have inspired al Quida thruout the Muslim world. Troops that should have secured Afghanistan were deployed in Iraq. Tragically, Bush didn't understand that the war was between moderate Muslims and extremists, and he gave moral ammunition to the extremists by our occupation.

However, I remain startled at the people who failed to protest the failure of the UN to prosecute criminals who commit crimes against humanity. That was what allowed Hitler to press the holocaust, and would encourage future Hitlers.

I am offended that you just hurl labels like, "Hitler-ites" so unanalytically.

Sorry, It's called thinking like an Relational Database.

What's the Role Model? Master/Slave Race?

Who's "acting" like "Who"?

It's "serious" biz learning How to Act.

Here we have another fine example of what happens when politics are allowed to go unchecked on an investment thread. Since a well-established alternative exists, this one gets renamed and retired to the Politics Forum.

As far as your post goes, it's a TOU violation, politics forum or not.

I've read some of the 9/11 report. After Bush was given the Aug 6 imminent attack warning, which he referred to as, "a historical document", there is no evidence that any action whatsoever was taken to protect the country domestically.

I am curious about his reasoning-- perhaps someone could post Bush's side.

Bush's side is that he was busy playing golf.
