Questions for Bush, Cheney and US

Yesterday Dick Cheney said invading Iraq was the right thing to do and he is not bothered that over 70% of the US population disagrees with him. George Bush continues to say that invading Iraq to take Saddam Hussein out of power was an intelligent move.

Why hasn't the corporate media called these buffoons are their lies?

Remember back to the day of the invasion. Some of us were able to be glued to the television coverage before the bombing began. It was reported that a few hours BEFORE the invasion, Saddam Hussein offered to step down and go into exile with his sons and family. The Bush Cheney cabal basically said Saddam's offer was "too late" and they invaded Iraq anyway at the cost of over 1 million lives of innocent Iraqi civilians, US military casualties, and untold numbers of wounded soldiers and civilians.

This 3 trillion dollar war that has wrecked so many lives and the US economy, and created the largest humanitarian crisis in the world today, was easily avoided. We did NOT have to illegally invade Iraq to oust Saddam from power and continue monitoring and searching for WMD.

Why did we invade Iraq? This question remains unanswered to this day.

How can anyone forget that Saddam Hussein OFFERED to go into exile right before the invasion? Why haven't Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Rice been asked WHY they did not accept Hussein's offer to leave Iraq and continue with their illegal, immoral invasion?

Why haven't all of these war profiteering criminals been impeached?

Now that you know (or remember) that Saddam Hussein offered to leave Iraq BEFORE we invaded...what do you think should be done about the reckless, immoral actions of our Bush administration to continue with their plan to invade Iraq?

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of "Spiritus Mundi"
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

-- William Butler Yeats, "The Second Coming"
