Question for Bush supporters
18

Do you acknowledge that it wasn't just that Bush had this "intelligence" re: WMD's (that he shared with Congress, and everyone else) in his possession, but that Bush actively went around and promoted his view that an invasion was necessary?

Brand new to this board, and jumping in:


In answer to your question: ABSOLUTELY. Bush lobbied for this war, and, as you recall, had the support of both Congress and the vast majority of the American people based on the intelligence we ALL had at the time the decision was made.


Some of this intelligence information was later found to be incomplete and, in some cases, inadequate and faulty, but it WAS the best we had to go on AT THE TIME we needed to make a decision as to how/if to act to enforce UN policy in the COMPLETE ABSENCE of the UN'S WILLINGNESS to enforce their own ultimateum.


Bush's lobbying for war (or "his position", as you stated)

Wow! The way that questions was worded, I thought I was on a CNN opinion poll LOL

So what you are saying is that the President had information that led him to believe we should go to war. He presented that information to Congress and to the public before he went to war. The majority of Congress and the majority of the public agreed, that yes, we should go to war. So in essence, the President presented the information to us, we agreed with him, and then he went to war.

Am I missing something here? What is wrong with that? The only difference between that and what Kerry is saying he would have done is that Kerry would have waited until the French, Germans and Russians gave the big head nod. Or, at least until they were "comfortable" with his position.

In other words, Kerry is a puppet.
