"There is so much information that goes into a decision like this....much of which we will never be privy to."

Not only information, but also personal, political and bureaucratic agendas of those providing the information and advice.

Robert, only because it took all of ten seconds will I dignify your request for me to cite....

U.S. Strikes Iraq for Plot to Kill Bush By David Von Drehle and R. Jeffrey Smith Washington Post Staff Writers Sunday, June 27, 1993; Page A01

U.S. Navy ships launched 23 Tomahawk missiles against the headquarters of the Iraqi Intelligence Service yesterday in what President Clinton said was a "firm and commensurate" response to Iraq's plan to assassinate former president George Bush in mid-April.

To those making the claim that you will block me... ok, free nation and the site gives you that power. I however haven't found you in my blocked list and when you block someone, you appear in their list as this side blocks both from seeing the other.

"Before Bush took office Bill Clinton was asserting that Saddam had WMD's and was the greatest threat in the world to use them. He also informed the Bush family that Saddam had actively plotted to assassinate George Senior on a trip to Kuwait."

Site the part where Saddam actively plotted to assassinate George Senior? (namely if while president of the US.)

I do believe that when you leave the safety of the US, you are taking your life into your own hands to a degree. You lose some level of protection. That said, if we can blast your attackers from sea, or in the case of piracy, sink the pirates ships and destroy their docks... We should.

However you should accept that when you leave your national boarders... you are at a degree of less safety and shouldn't expect vengeance to be exacted. We aren't Israel, we have to cross an ocean on either side to find these kinds of threats... Unless we go south into Mexico. Either way, you chose to leave the safety of the US... Go hire Black water or something.

"Almost certainly Bush's decision was based on some combination of all the above (and myriad other factors) and I doubt that a bunch of casual observers on an internet sex site could know what constituted the "essence" of Bush's decision; as JFK opined, even the President himself would likely have a hard time pinpointing it."

Kudos!

There is so much information that goes into a decision like this....much of which we will never be privy to.

Akron:

"Alright, Semantic-boy. Did we go to war because Bush wanted OIL or did we go to war because the UN built a coalition to take out Saddam and his threat?"

Neither, we didn't ship oil from Iraq to the US without paying for it first. (How the proper procedure to conquer a nation and make it pay for the damages for conquering it.) And as for a coalition... please. Lucky if all of our coalition combined equaled half of what the US sent. If the world isn't going to send an equal or all of their military might while producing more to equal our own... then it isn't anything more than them throwing token forces.

Token forces are throw away forces, forces that you don't need/want. This was a US lead endeavorer, nothing more. Where the pay off for Bush came in, was likely in the way of the military industrial complex and Darth Chainy gaining more money form his investments in said complex. (as well as other contributers and friends of the Bush admin.)
