And let's all blithely forget that Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11 but merely represented unfinished business to Baby Bush (Pappy didn't finish the job he started years before) and the lure of free oil. Hundreds of thousands died and millions more were crushed because Baby Bush had a family agenda. Good thing the USA is always the good guy, regardless of dropping atomic bombs on unarmed civilians, illegally bombing south-east Asian nations, and implementing institutionalized torture. Imagine how awful the world would be if the USA weren't always wearing the white hat.
