Many of you think that we only invaded Iraq due to our suspicion of Saddams continued development of WMD's. Then when none were found, Bush expediently said we invaded to liberate the Iraqis. In other words, Bush had no intentions of going in to do the Iraqi people any favors.
But, here is a quote from his remarks to the U.N. General Assembly about his request for the U.N. to back an invasion, before the U.S. invaded.
No one who truly seeks the "truth" for its own sake can say with a clear conscience, having read this, that Bush changed his reasons for invading Iraq when no WMD's were found.The United States has no quarrel with the Iraqi people; they've suffered too long in silent captivity. Liberty for the Iraqi people is a great moral cause, and a great strategic goal. The people of Iraq deserve it; the security of all nations requires it. Free societies do not intimidate through cruelty and conquest, and open societies do not threaten the world with mass murder. The United States supports political and economic liberty in a unified Iraq.
