Which Bush?

You may not be old enough to remember Desert Storm. That was my generation's war.

(Seems so weird in saying that.)

That was the only time Saddam proactively went in to another country under a Bush. But there was the Iran / Iraq war, but that was well before your time. (Maybe you were in nappies? )

And if you meant to say about Bush Jr., Bush didn't bluff. Saddam did and Bush called his bluff which ironically was meant to keep the Iranians at bay.

So please junior, learn your history. GWB shouldn't have gone in to Iraq, but hindsight is always 20/20. He gave the bad intel to Congress and they voted upon it.
