    Liar, there were no weapons, as they confirmed later. How does an american be not ashamed of this President?
     -- Nora, Jordan     
     -- Mark, USA      
    Nora, ashamed is an understatement. Each of these quotes is more disturbing then the next. It really leaves many of us not only disgusted but speechless.To describe what we have done in Iraq, and will continue to do, as something done in the name of Peace is an abomination.

    Does shredding the Constitution bring peace? NO Does duplicating history (such as certain aspects of the Nazi take over) enable peace? NO Has paying the major contractors over in Iraq, while intentionally not completing their contracted jobs promote peace? NO There's not much king George has done to depict 'in the name of peace'.

    Bush doesn't make up words as much as he makes up new meanings for words, like 'Peace' and 'disaster' and 'winning' and 'WMD.'

    How long before our government says "turn in your guns or we'll disarm you?"

    How is it that the US can dictate whether other countries may be permitted to build or buy the same kind of weapons the US has? And the only chemical weapons Saddam supposedly had were ones that were purchased from the US anyway. Is any country safe from the US military now? OK, Saddam was a bloody dictator -- but the US helped him all the way. But what right does the US have to tell any country whether they can develop the very same weapons that the US points against them? Such hypocrisy (i.e. waging war for peace) has become the mainstay of the industrial-military-banking complex -- today Iraq, tomorrow the world...

    he was thinking in the name of oil, get rid of Bush
     -- Gregoroff, Canada     
    Good point E Archer. Sort of like the government saying the citizens aren't allowed to have the same arms as the military or the police (I don't mean tanks, fighter jets, or nuclear weopons but military type small arms). What makes the military and the police better than the citizenry? They are human. Are they somehow more virtuous than us? Is it because of training? I train as much as many police and soldiers with my firearms? Are they more responsible? What makes them more trustworthy than me? The founders believed the people should have the same weapons as the military in case they would have to defend themselves from their own government. I agree.

    Bush's statements are too simple to judge. If he said it, it's a lie. He has never made a fully truthful statement in his life

    George Orwell would be rolling in his grave... Pure Doublethink! Disarm in the name of peace! War in the name of Peace! War is Peace! Black is White! Freedom is Slavery! Ignorance is Strength! Despicable...
     -- Corey Walsh, Marshall, Ar     
    I must disagree only a very little with Jack of Oh.Bush told the truth when he said we had only two choices either we are with him or we are with the terrorists if you dont believe this ask the thousands of peaceful protestors who have been arrested or the millions of american citizens who are being spied upon daily or the former military or intelligence proffessionals who have been fired for daring to speak the truth.But aside from this single example I must agree if his mouth is moving he is lying.

    I think anyone who thinks we'd be better off with SH still in power is an idiot.

    Im no Bush fan but this quote has nothing to do with citizen rights.
     -- Ken, MI     
    Yes, Bush did some things wrong. But then, even the idolized Abraham Lincoln messed up. I think we'd be better off with him as our president than with the Marxist liar we have in the White House now. The surge worked. The Iraqis are a much better off than they were, and I think we can all agree on that one. Saddam was a second Hitler. Thankfully he's not in power now, but Obama is on his way to take the place he left open.
