What would you have done if you were the president of the U.S. during 9/11? I remember back when that happened, it was the general consensus of the public that we should go to war; We were afraid of another attack. Heck, if the terrorists did it once for no logical reason, why wouldn't they do it again? We had every right to pursue those involved with terrorism. Bush did the right thing here. A lot of people dislike what George has done because they're plain and simple, anti-war. Well folks, war is necessary, it always has been, and always will be(probably). Infiltrating Iraq had its pros and cons. Saddam Hussein had ties to the taliban and was suspected of holding weapons of mass destruction, that right there justifies enough for U.N. peacekeepers to infiltrate Iraq. Also, after Saddam Hussein was relieved of duty, we set up a democracy in place of Saddam Hussein's 'government'; This will greatly help the people of Iraq in the future. Although it had great pros including a sense of security(which is good whether or not its justified), it also had some cons including, huge spending, and some lost life. Whether or not Bush did the right thing here is debatable, but it certainly is not a landslide in any way. A war with Iran - Should we go to war with Iran? The benefits would be great, but maybe not apparent for the next fifteen years. Once going to happen when oil becomes so expensive that middle-class families can only use cars to get to work and back? Possibly a depression? In the next twenty years the United States will need to make a rash decision regarding oil. I'd say our best option now is to start drilling in Alaska, and let the import prices drop; After they drop we can start importing again, and if they go up, repeat the process. But of course, this idea won't happen due to Animal Rights Activists etc. America needs cheaper oil, and more money for that matter. Taking over Iran's oil production will help both of those needs. If Bush did this, I'd say he did the right thing. Some of the new policies Bush has introduced I dislike, and some I like. That goes with most presidents. Bush had some rough situations as president, and for the most part, I agree with what he did, whether or not the consequences of what he did were good or not. This topic is specifically about George W. Bush, and the decisions he was forced to make during his presidency. Please don't bring up any other subjects.
