BREAKING: Congress votes to invade Iraq...nearly four years ago

A little actual history is good for the soul...and bad for republicans.

From (scroll down)

Got that? "If Saddam Hussein refuses to give up weapons of mass destruction as required by U.N. resolutions." Not to capture Saddam. Not to free the Iraqis. Not to spread democracy. Not to rebuild Iraq. Not to take over Iraq. Not to fight al Qaeda. But to exploit a U.N. force Saddam to give up his weapons of mass destruction.

Any other reason they give you is bullshit. That's what was voted on.

Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction to give up. The inspectors did their job. Bush wanted nothing of it. He launched a war.

More in that story:

The president praised the congressional action, declaring "America speaks with one voice."

That's right. The day of the vote, Bush lied. "One voice?" Not nearly. Besides the 77-23 Senate vote, the House vote was 296-133.
