After over 3,000 innocent citizens were murdered by a terrorist act against our country, President Bush declared war on terrorism and on any country that supports or harbors terrorists. The first task was removing the Taliban in Afghanistan. The presence of WMD programs in Iraq allegedly supported by the former administration, the UN, the history of neighboring wars, and their use on their own population.
