Too bad Bush wasn’t as cautious as Obama

If I’m not mistaken, there is no definitive proof that Assad has used chemical weapons against the opposition. As letter-writer Bill Bruner “Obama Gone Wobbly” stated in last week’s MDJ, “It has been reported” that Assad’s forces have used sarin gas against the rebels. As I recall, “it was reported” that Saddam had WMD’s and, acting on those erroneous reports, DUBYA propelled us into war with Iraq. Perhaps had he been a “bit wobbly,” we could have avoided one of the most costly wars in our history in terms of military and civilian casualties; not to mention the tremendous financial burden we have incurred.

Obama is correct in waiting until we have creditable proof that Assad has used chemical weapons before moving forward militarily.

Yawn. Nothing more to see here than Bush Derangement Syndrome. Newsflash. Bush is not President. Please. Move along.
