Manic Determination


Dear Editor:

Here we go again; additional proof that Bush had planned to invade Iraq long before 9/11 gave him the excuse and the vehicle with which to realize his goal. He did, and we are now aiming at the upcoming benchmarks of 3000 dead and 17,000 physically and mentally crippled American fighting boys and girls.

In a five page memorandum by an advisor to Prime Minister Tony Blair, it is documented that on January 31, 2003 in a closed door meeting Bush made it clear to Prime Minister Tony Blair that he was determined to invade Iraq in spite of no UN resolution or the failure of the International Arms Inspectors to find unconventional weapons. Present were Condoleeza Rice, National Security Advisor and her senior aid, Dan Fried as well as recently dumped, Andrew Card Jr., White House Chief of Staff. They all heard but remained typically zipper-lipped. This confidential memo was written by Blair's top foreign policy advisor, David Manning. He further states that, "Our diplomatic strategy had to be arraigned around the military planning. The start date for the military campaign was now penciled in for 10 March." Mr. Manning summarizes Bush's intent by saying, "This was when the bombing would begin." His manic determination to invade Iraq had earlier been exposed in a completely separate July 20, 2002, Downing Street Memo.

Bush's devious premeditated invasion was actually realized on 20 March, 10 days later than his initial intent. Perhaps the 10-day delay saved a few lives and limbs and every day costs our youth their future. If anyone still thinks that this Iraq war is one of necessity rather than choice, they are as intent on evading the truth as is Bush.
