The whole agrument about not getting the majority is wrong - he won the election and got elected president. And I would wager he will win again in November.
As stated previously I was and still is a supporter of the war. To state that the he didn't go into Saudi Arabia because of the oil but still went into Iraq because of the oil makes no sense.
I agree the world press focuses on Iraq is because of the oil. They choose to ignore Ivory Coast and the Congo etc. but that does not mean he was wrong to go to Iraq.
The Iraqi people are grateful for the disposal of Saddam. They now want the Americans out but the sad fact is the rest of the owrld (UN) can't effectively keep peace (well better than the Americans - Kosovo).
The americans are needed in Iraq otherwise the whole world economy would fail. It is easy to have morals and ideals when we all are reasonable off (except the house buyer further up the bulletit board) but if the world economy crashed we would be seeking some recovery - which would be stability in the Middle East.
People would want to get of their high horse of the anti-Bush rheteric as there will always be an american leader who will have the same corporate pressures.
