"Go massive; sweep it all up; destroy it all. Things related and not, it doesn't matter."
Notes and orders made by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld (about going to war against Iraq) hours after the 9/11 attacks

“Colin Powell was only partially right when he warned before the U.S. invasion, ‘If you break it, you own it.’ What he didn't add is that the locals will hate you for it, and try to kill you every day until you give it back.”

Iraqis Finally Unite--Against the U.S.
Robert Scheer

As the world knows, the invasion of Iraq was not for liberation but for occupation and usurpation.
If Bush and Dick simply wanted to liberate the Iraqi people from Saddam Hussein, they would have pulled out of Iraq sooner and not later...
Or in this case...
Bush's legs have not been amputated, but his legacy has.
No honor, no glory, no victory…only dishonor, infamy and deaths.
Bush has been beating around the bush all of this time.
He has always mouthed what his speech writers have written (or whispered into his ears), but his policies have been abject failures.
Blood is on his hands, on Dick’s hands, on Rummy’s hands…and on the hands of all Neo Cons and greedy oilmen friends and cronies who, for their oily and serpentine ends, wanted Afghanistan and Iraq invaded and occupied…
Blood, flesh and bones are splattering all over their deceitful faces.

Florida Sen. Bill Nelson said he is worried that Iraq has made his state
unprepared to handle a hurricane. New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer released a report showing his National Guard had only a fraction of mission critical equipment needed to respond to a terrorist attack. Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano said the deployments could impact how her state fights wildfires.Even the nation's top Guard officer, Lt. Gen. H. Steven Blum, says no state has more than 65% of the equipment they need. "If we don't have the equipment we need, the reaction time is slow, and time equals lives lost," Blum said. "Those lives are American lives."Last year, nearly every governor signed a letter opposing Bush's use of federal control over the National Guard.
