Sovereignty - So Last Century

In the interest of full disclosure, I've been against the Iraq War since it's inception. We invaded a sovereign nation that was in no way involved with 9/11. None of the so-called threats panned out, something the UN inspectors said all along. Some currently speak of "success" in Iraq now, ignoring that fact that we have no business being there in the first place.

And due to Rumsfeld et al. dropping the ball in Afganistan, Osama hightailed it into Pakistan (reportedly). So our answer to that difficulty - cross the border into Pakistan, against the wishes of yet another sovereign nation.

And now this week, to make it an even 3 -- WE INVADED SYRIA!!! Yep, crossed the border in a raid, killed several folks, slipped back into Iraq.

What's the deal?? Does Bush not understand the concept of 'sovereign'? Is he TRYING to get us into another war before he heads out of office? Hasn't this man done enough damage to our country? We need a new rule -- if you're a complete idiot, you have to leave office immediately upon the election of the new President.
