None of this side discussion over how people were registered changes the vast body of lies, deceptions, intentional mistruths, and plain bad judgements that led to and make up the body of the Iraq war.
It is commendable and admirable that so many Iraqis faced possible violence to vote. At no point does this excuse the actions which have lead to this point; the ends (which, by the way, we aren't even close to) most certainly do not justify the means.
The same litany of bad logic as always.
1. The invasion was necessary because it was necessary to be very sure that Iraq had destroyed its WMD after years of lies and deception on Hussein's part and his inexplicable inability to provide hard evidence that the weapons had been destroyed and the programs dismantled (if indeed they were). Had he still had these things, millions could have died down the road.
2. I am unaware of any intentional mistruths on the part of the administration, although I hear you liberals repeat this concept over and over again like some kind of prayer.
3. We did not invade primarily to rescue the Iraqis from their hideous opression, but it is certainly an important goal. You seem perfectly happy with the idea of them having remained playthings of Hussein et al.
