"Bring it on"

It's funny, I don't recall "tricking terrorists to go to Iraq where our troops can kill them" as being a rationale for going to war.

As we work to deliver opportunity at home, we're also keeping you safe from threats from abroad. We went to war because we were attacked, and we are at war today because there are still people out there who want to harm our country and hurt our citizens. Some may disagree with my decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power, but all of us can agree that the world's terrorists have now made Iraq a central front in the war on terror. These foreign terrorists violently oppose the rise of a free and democratic Iraq, because they know that when we replace despair and hatred with liberty and hope, they lose their recruiting grounds for terror.

I'm sure the Iraqi people, left with much time to ponder these things as they sit in their darkened, stifling homes, wondering when the power will come back on, beam with pride for their role in keeping 'mericuns safe.
