STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Former chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix said Wednesday the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq had failed tragically in its aim of making the world a safer place and succeeded only in stimulating terrorism.

Blix is simply saying what many of us have known all along: Bush’s Iraqi war has HELPED terrorists, not hindered them.
Blix points out in the article tht the world is definately more unsafe than it was prior to the Iraqi invasion. Blix correctly points out that all the Iraqi invasion did was “opened Iraq to Islamist militants” whose sole mission in life seems to be the attacking the invading troops.
Let’s face it. The invasion of Iraq has been a tragic lose of both human lives and money. Don’t believe it? Well, just ask yourself if
- bin Lauden has been caught or killed? (It is so interesting when Bush sites the figure “75% of al-Qaeda members have been killed or caught,” he never includes bin Lauden in that number. We all know why that is, right? Because we allowed our attention to be diverted).
- What is happening in N. Korea? Is the situation there being dealt with? Exactly what is the Bush camp doing about a very unstable country?
- Is the USA a safer place since we attacked Iraq? With more and more troops being sent to Iraq, the irony is that one day Iraq may well turn out to be a much more safer place than America. Yikes!
Well, good for Blix for speaking his mind and holding Bush’s feet to the fire for making far too many mistakes as he leads America down a path of personal destruction. :bravo:
