Printer version: Editorial: The wrong war/Why Iraq was a mistake: “Imagine that President Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell had made a case for the invasion of Iraq along the following lines: ‘Saddam Hussein is an evil dictator who has long oppressed the Iraqi people and threatened Iraq’s neighbors. It is U.S. policy to seek regime change in Iraq, and we propose to do that now, by military force. Saddam does not pose a risk to the United States now, and any threat he eventually may pose is years or decades away. His programs for developing weapons of mass destruction have been dormant since the end of the Gulf War. We have no evidence of links between Saddam and the terrorists of Al-Qaida or other groups capable of attacking the United States. Any invasion of Iraq is not related to the war on terrorism.”
