Default Gibson interview: Bush might still have attacked Iraq if Intel showed that their were no WMDs

I don't have a link just saw an excert of the interview.

When asked if he would still go to war with Iraq if intel showed that their were no WMD's, he basically said he couldn't answer that question. Bush considered that question speculative as if it hasn't already happened. This shows the depth of this warmonger. He was going to invade Iraq for anything and/or nothing. How do you conservative/neos/republicans/Bush lovers feel about that? War because Bush felt like it?

Try and give your feelings not "but but but the Democrats voted for it to". This is about Bush's ideology.

Bush should be bombing Pakistan at this very moment. They are more responsible for terror attacks than any other nation. I hope that Israel thumps the dirt bags as well.

The Iraq war was dubya's oil war, nothing more nothing less.

"The biggest regret of all the presidency has to have been the intelligence failure in Iraq," Bush said 50 days before president-elect Barack Obama's inauguration. "I wish the intelligence had been different, I guess." But Bush refused to say whether he would have ordered the March 2003 invasion if he had known that late dictator Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction, calling it "an interesting question."
"That is a do-over that I can't do. It's hard for me to speculate," said Bush"

So many millions and millions of people affected, all negatively. Not just the combatants in Iraq but all their families, all indirectly or even directly from terrorism, stray gunfire and suicide bombers. Think of all the fractured Iraqi families, all the dead children and grandparents, all the widows and widowers, and what does Bush think about that?

He don't. He's a psychopath. He's doesn't "feel" anything, he "believes", and he will go to his grave without ever admitting the level of either his failure or his deceit.

Whoopsie...Pakistan isn't as flush with cash as our "ally" Saudi Arabia. They're the ones funding the hardcore radical madrassas...
Oh but Georgie wouldn't bomb our biggest oil pipeline now would he?

Please. I'm as disappointed in the job Bush has done as the next guy, but he is not a psycopath. I am sure Bush understands the consequences of war and while he may not have made the best decisions, he did what he needed to do and has stuck by his principles. Many acknowledge that Iraq is better off today without Saddam's government in power.

He was going to avenge daddy, that was his goal before he was elected, and Congress failed to stop him, as they did not recognize that Bush is a scheming lying bastard that will say or do anything to get his way. 9/11 was only a very convenient excuse that played into his hands.

Bush was going to attack Iraq from Day 1 . That was his only objective for running for office.

He was going to do it by pushing Saddam harder and harder into a corner with demands that he knew Saddam would, could not meet.

9-11 made it that much easier and add a useless media which did not question him just went with it than BINGO.

Media will do the same in the future

I agree however your taking some blame off the shoulders of congress who did NOT do their job and question the "evidence" and Bush.

Well, 2 or 3 did but the rest sold the masses out and they will do it again BOTH parties.

"I am sure Bush understands the consequences of war "
