You have a real selective memory.
This is so much BS...
GWB pushed the button to go to war with Iraq. No one else. Congress did not even give him a declaration of war. The dems may have been accomplices but it was GWB who pulled the trigger. Don't give me the "well they didn't stop me" argument.
Sure, Bush pushed the war button. But loneiguana is trying to advance the idea that he lied to get us into that war. The truth is that Bush/Cheney believed what they were saying (within the normal bounds of political puffery) and they had lots of company on both sides of the aisle and around the civilized world in that belief. There were differences of opinion about what to do about it, but much less difference of opinion about the threat that Saddam represented.
