    "Many military families are now blaming Jews -- for the Iraq war. This is not "left wing," it is middle America." If they are, their stress has made them delusional. Nobody pushed harder for this war than Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld. Each of those men had their own reasons; none of which had anything to do with Israel. In his first meeting after 9/11, Bush made it clear that he wanted the attacks pinned on Iraq. This, despite the fact that all of his security advisors disputed any connection. With no Jews in his cabinet, Bush decided to take out Saddam because his father was percieved as too wimpy to do so. Cheney's former employers have made 10's of billions of dollars off of this war. Rumsfeld wished to elevate military responses back into the vaulted position that they enjoyed previous to Vietnam. It is a total misrepresentation to assert that American fores are dying in Iraq because of Israel. Moreover, it is a blood libel to assert that it is because of "the Jews".
