Who's the terrorist: -- Bin Ladin or Saddam?

Bush's attack on Iraq was totally out of place. His main concern, as he said, was to get rid of a terrorist (Saddam) who threatens the world! What happened to his main goal? Getting rid of Bin Ladin, the true terrorist and threat, one who actually attacked his country and is still the greatest threat to peace in the whole wide world!

Bush also says that he's into Iraq to make sure that goals for human rights and women's equality are met (that's what he said when he went into Afghanistan too), but the true question is: what is Bush doing about human rights in Saudi Arabia and the way women are treated there? Now that the US is based in that land, what has the US government done to further those same goals?

The thing is that Bush walked into Iraq with no plans, no idea what was going to happen when Saddam is removed and what would happen to his own young men and women involved in such a causeless war!

The only thing I can say, is: well done Bush, you've got all the oil you want! Enough to last you for another 500 years!!

I only hope that Americans won't make the same mistake and re-elect him for the following four years!
