Why did Bush attack Iraq ???

by Bob / October 9, 2004 5:47 AM PDT

Now that the three reaons for attacking Iraq given by Bush have been proven false what was the reason for invading Iraq? Do you suppose that the original reason given by sceptics of the need for the attack was legitimate after all? OIL! OIL! No WMD! No legitimate fear of an attack by Saddam! He was not connected to Al Quaeda! Will one of you Fantasy Philosophers please suggest a reason so that I will not have to believe that the 1000+ lives were not lost for nothing more than a money-making scheme by greedy men. OIL!! Were not Bush and Cheney connected to the OIL industry before coming into Public Service or is their service for the public. Please give me some hope for a sane reason for an insane action.

You seem to be the exception to the 20/20 hindsight rule... yours must be about 20/500.
We had lots of reasons to go into Iraq, but your insistance leads me to believe that trying to convince you of it would not be successful.
I'm going to go explain Descartes to my dog now...

"Beat a dead horse". "Wag my tail" and something about my vision being 20/500. These are supposed to be reasonable responses to a serious question that will make the deaths of 1000+ American soldiers seem justified and necessary?

#Now that the three reaons for attacking Iraq given by Bush have been proven false#

i.e. there WERE three reasons...they have been proven (maybe) false AFTER the act...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
