GWB gave many reasons (excuses) for his war of aggression against
Iraq, including getting even with the Butcher of Baghdad for putting
a hit on his father. However, the real reason, if not the only
reason, for GWB's invasion of Iraq was his need to have a bigger
war than the short two-week affair the US had in Afghanistan.
After all, he had an election to win, and could no longer count
on having enough justices of the US Supreme Court to vote his
way. Especially with a popular war hero who actually fought in
Vietnam being his main opponent.
No wartime president has ever lost election to a second term.
GWB did not want to be the first. Remember, you are talking about
a guy who defended Texas from the Viet Cong by serving in the Texas
Air National Guard. No way was he ever going to allow the Iraqi
Air Force to bomb America, even if they had no airplanes.
