A great miscalculation on his part thinking nobody would attack if we thought he possessed such weapons.
    BG, it was very much confirmed that the US intelligence and our leader and his cabinet were the major force in the decision. Yes the other governments were saying the same thing but we were the train going down the tracks and it was discussed internally about the benefits of going over there. They needed the case to get approved by congress so they use all means available to get it done. What you don't think that Tony Blair and Bush were not talking behind the scenes about how this would benefit them later?

    Trump Fans or Not, Business Owners Are Wary of Warren and Sanders

    "Wariness extends far beyond an elite financial fellowship, though, to many small and medium-size businesses whose executives are not reflexively Republican but worry that the ascendancy of a left-wing Democrat would create an anti-business climate. In their view, sweeping plans to remake the health care system or slash the cost of higher education will mean higher taxes for businesses and the middle class, no matter what candidates promise."
