More on the War on Terror
The other day in a press conferance President Bush was going on about how Iraq is a crucial part of the "War on Terror" with Al Quida being so active in Iraq and all....
Prior to US and British intervention in Iraq there was only ONE Al Quida base in Iraq.... it was in Kurdistan which was an area of Iraq which Sadam had NO control over.
Sadam was not an Islamic extremist, he was a secular leader who was considered an enemy of the extremists.
Iraq being a recruiting ground for Islamic extremists was a direct result of the attack on Iraq and was a recruitment tool for Islamic extremists.
I find it very difficult to believe that neither Bush or Blair's advisors warned them that this was the most likely outcome.
