They baited us into the Iraq war for nonexistent reasons, and now want us to show "the same resolve for it as for WW II", as Bush will say in his speech in Coranado, CA. In WW II we had real reason to defend our country, or we would have been speaking German or Japanese if we didn't take action, unlike the Iraq war which is at best a "venture" and on par with a goat rope.

How deceptive, underhanded, and misleading for our alleged leaders to compare the two wars, which are like night and day in their basis, or lack thereof. Apparently they think we will all believe such baloney.

Its sad that, no doubt, there will be those not yet informed who will still be taken in by that deception, and sadder yet that our leaders unashamedly take advantage of that lack of awareness.
