> Idon't like bush much myself,but impeaching him is not a good idea.rember dick chaney is vice president and if something happens to bush,HE GETS TO BE PRESIDENT.how many of us would actually want that.

I think he did the best anyone could with the available information and removing Saddam and the Taliban were 'good' things. It speaks volumes of what kind of world we live in that removing Saddam is a 'war crime' to some. In any case, after 9/11, this world is lucky a nuclear arsenal was in the hands of nation like the USA. I would say any other nation with similar power after an attack of this magnitude would not send troops, but, just launch ICBMs. G-D Bless Bush and our Troops. \:\)

>I think he did the best anyone could with the available information

I strongly disagree. A Gore Administration, like every other government in the world would not have attacked Iraq under these circumstances. Afghanistan, yes. Iraq, no. The Bush Administration clearly saw what it wanted to see despite numerous notes of caution about the intelligence from the CIA and elsewhere.

>and removing Saddam and the Taliban were 'good' things.

Good, yes, from some perspectives, but I bet a lot of Iraqis would rather have food, electricity, a job, and their lives while being under Saddam’s rule than facing the civil war they are right now. Even Saddam wasn’t killing dozens of his people EVERY SINGLE DAY. More to the point, the criticism of Bush isn’t that he removed Saddam. It’s that his Administration totally failed to plan for the insurgency afterward that has led to more than 3,100 American lives lost, tens if not hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed, and over $400 billion spent on this war.

>It speaks volumes of what kind of world we live in that removing Saddam is a 'war crime' to some.

That’s a straw argument. Removing Saddam is not the war crime. Keeping thousands of people imprisoned with no stated charges and often under torture for YEARS is a crime.

>In any case, after 9/11, this world is lucky a nuclear arsenal was in the hands of nation like the USA. I would say any other nation with similar power after an attack of this magnitude would not send troops, but, just launch ICBMs. G-D Bless Bush and our Troops.

That is wild and unwarranted speculation. I severely doubt any of the European nations would launch nuclear weapons in the event of the Eiffel Tower or Big Ben getting blown up with thousands of casualties. Russia or China may be more likely to respond this way, but still highly unlikely to do so. Who exactly would they bomb anyway? Al Qaeda is not a location.
