Presidential Letter
Text of a Letter from the President to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate

March 18, 2003

Dear Mr. Speaker:

Consistent with section 3(b) of the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 (Public Law 107-243), and based on information available to me, including that in the enclosed document, I determine that:

(1) reliance by the United States on further diplomatic and other peaceful means alone will neither (A) adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq nor (B) likely lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq; and

(2) acting pursuant to the Constitution and Public Law 107-243 is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.

Sincerely,

GEORGE W. BUSH

There was some sarcasm in there from Hope...

And he an evil man. And the definition of a dictator is: one ruling absolutely and often oppressively (def: unreasonably burdensome or severe).

Sounds like Bush!!

It did say that there was proof that some Al Queda had been in Iraq (or were at the time of the Resolution) and that Iraq had given aid to terrorist organizations, also a well known fact. If you read that letter carefully you will see that it is stated that taking the action permitted by 107-243 is stated to be "consistent" with the US and other countries taking action against certain terrorist organizations including.... etc. The word "including" does not mean exclusively. By taking out Iraq there would be one less nation in the world able to give aid to terrorist orgaizations. If you look at 107-243 it is replete with numerous reasons why the US thought it necessary to take action agsinst Iraq. None of those reasons was that Iraq was connected to
9-11.
Before you start citing Public Laws and Resolutions, I suggest that you read them first.

Oh yeah, there's way too many people in power who believe violence is the answer!!

I love this bit:

It is she who takes off her clothes, shortens them, flirts, puts on make-up and powder and takes to the streets, God protect us, dallying. It's she who shortens, raises and lowers.

Sheesh!!! Nice one buddy!

after thinking more about this, lets put Saddam, back in power and with DNA we can make a copy of copies of his sons. Then they can get back to realliy important things, gold plated ak-47's and lets not forget running around kidnapping any good looking women they see.

then just to set the whole world right, all thewhite people move back to europe now.

and yes i think you are being hysterical, look it up yourself the number of people that died due to saddam is between 200,000-500,000.
and if the people of iraq want there power on then stand up and fight for it.

I am sure the kurds would hank you and send you love letters if they could only go back to be test subjects to saddam chemical weapons.

I would like to thank you for once again proving there is no back bone in western world.

Good Saddam got what he desserved.

That Being said, anyone who said Bush isnt a Liar, well he told us all there were weapons of mass destruction, so where are they? Oh thats right..there are none..and he has had to come out and say such. That to me is a Lie. we went to war under false pretenses. and we dang well shoulda focused on what is called "the other war" first and foremost.

And than..you have North Korea. who basically says YES we have them and YES we will use them. Neenerr nenenner..

Whats next, we going to invade them?

I love the United States, and I am proud to be an American. However, one of the glories given to me by being an American, I dont have to like, or agree with the president. And I dont.

Just like i dont like the govenor of my state..

and you can bet I will do the Most American Statement I can,to show my displeasure, Tommrow. I will be voteing!

Meh. Sitting on death row is cruel enough... probably worse than hanging. Can you imagine being in solitary confinement, and the only people you see are guards and your LAWYER? There's cruel and unusual for you. The guy deserves every second of it, for what he's done to his people.

They're still going to try to make this all political though. He'll turn into a symbol for a million things, instead of being seen as simply the poor excuse for a human being he is.

List of others who told us that Saddam had WMD's:

John Kerry, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Jason Rockefeller, Madeline Albright, and a host of other Democrats;

China, Russia, Germany, France, Britain (and most of Europe with them); Japan

The United Nations was also of the opinion that he had WMD's.

But alas!!!! George Bush is thee liar!!!! Guess all of the above were lying too since they had access to the same intelligence. Eh?

It is obvious that you let your Bush hatred get in the way any sign of logic.

The problem is the Bush is the PRESIDENT. So all the other major/minor politicians can say what they want, its Bush who'll be the one the country follows, who commands the army, who has the power to send America to Iraq, so yes, if it turns out intelligence was wrong then he should be the one taking the blame for it.
However Saddam is someone who makes me reconsider my aversion to the death penalty. If Bush had gone into Iraq because there was a terrible dictator in power, who was killing thousands upon thousands of people, then it would have been fine. and a perfectly acceptable reason to go to war. Not for nonexistant WMDs, terrorist affiliations, oil etc
Also, just because the leaders of a country supported the war, doesn't mean the general public within that country did.

But the CONGRESS holds the purse strings. Many Congress members, including Democrats are allowing the war to be funded. Many Democrats, including John Kerry, voted for the war (well at least before he voted against it )

Can I ask, where did the information come from that Saddam had WMDs? Who decided it was so?

Probably because he used them against the Kurds. Since he wouldn't let inspectors in, people assumed he still had the WMDs.

Perhaps because so many Republican politicians were portraying them as spineless traitors? I used to be a registered Republican, but the party's antics under Bush have really turned me off. He's not only ruined the U.S.'s reputation as a "world leader", but also discredited the Republican party.

That said, I am infinitely pleased that Saddam has received a death sentence. Speaking of liars and killers, he's a fantastic, case-book example of one. If I were Muslim I'd want to walk on his face. Heck, I'd want to grind my heel into his face.

While I don't think that the war in Iraq was necessary at the time we entered into, I am proud that our countrymen captured a criminal dictator so that he could be brought to justice.

I do think we need to extricate ourselves from the conflicts in the middle east as best as possible, but the US has long established itself as the global watchdog, and I just don't see that changing in a hurry.

At this point, it's a matter of us cleaning up our messes as best we can. I pity the next president - he or she will have their job cut out for them. I can't even imagine anyone wanting to take over the running of this country.

We may love to hate George W., but you have to appreciate that there are men like him that are willing to assume such awesome and overwhelming responsibility.

God Bless America.
VERY well put

People, please be kind to each other here, no need to get so heated. (I know, I'm not a mod and I should just shut up, LOL. )

My point is this: Someone, anyone, please name for me ONE politician that is currently in office that does NOT talk out of both sides of their mouth. Just one. Bet you can't do it!

The president is always the one that takes the most heat, regardless. My dad is STILL blaming everything on Clinton, LOL!!!
