    The original intent of George Bush's government, as stated to its citizens, was to remove WMDs from Iraq -- not the installation of democracy. Making up reasons in hindsight because we didn't find WMDs there is one way to justify our actions. Talking about war with Iran will only help in reducing the avenues to peace in this region. The only way you can be absolutely sure that Iran has no nuclear material now and will not have any in the future is to occupy it for ever. I'm sure some of you will think that that is not a bad idea either!
