"Smile" when you say that, Pete! He may be all those things, but as a politician, he's been adroit and you haven't made a case against his eloquence, which I find above the norm even for an English leader.
As we've discovered, what motivates Americans in a leader is somewhat different from other countries.
Guest SJ, I think there was a lot of honest belief in WMDs, prior to the invasion. Saddam was a definite contributor to terrorism in his own country and abroad. He was a nasty piece of work who defied the UN resolutions and kicked out the inspectors so there was considerable uncertainty as to what had gone on in Iraq in their absence. Mind you, I'm not saying that invasion was the ONLY way to handle this, I am real unhappy about the way we're going about it, but if there is a fire in your neighbor's house, and you can't find a key, you might not think to break a small window, you might just knock down the door.
