Bush gave us a host of reasons to invade Iraq, but half of us thought he was just using 9/11 to hijack American sentiment into supporting a personal oil war. But then the Bush administration produced a lot of evidence showing that Saddam was actively developing WMDs and delivery systems. And that he was colluding with all kinds of terrorists. And that he posed a real threat to the United States. Oh, and maybe he was kinda linked to (read: totally responsible for) 9/11. The evidence was pretty compelling (to the people who were allowed to see some of it, like John Kerry), and many more Americans decided that maybe the President has a point, and we should start threatening military action. And Kerry and Edwards voted to do so. Then the Bush administration began talking about how the U.N. wasn't towing the line, and how we're going to invade anyway, and we're going to shock and awe Saddam into submission, and we're going to invade, and we're invading... you can see it on TV through ebedded journalists. Get on board and support America! Well. All that falls apart if there weren't any WMDs or any terrorist links. Or any connections to 9/11, by the way.
