Iraq wasn't threat to U.S.

Someone needs to remind President Bush and Condoleeza Rice there were few thinking persons who honestly believed Saddam Hussein and Iraq was an imminent threat to the United States. Iraq had no navy, no air force, no well-equipped army, no infrastructure (that's necessary to fight a war), no missiles (with a range over 200 miles) and no atomic weapons.

The first airstrike was to kill Saddam, but their intelligence report on his whereabouts was faulty. They failed at this attempt, so they invaded a poor country.

Now what? Do you really want this administration to head our country?
