Uh, well, did Clinton invade Iraq without a declaration of war after the bombing? No. He never wanted to. Bush needed "justification" for a pre-meditated invasion of Iraq. Neither Congress nor the American public would have authorized either invasion without some sort of heinous act committed against our nation, exactly like what happened in December, 1941. Read up on your history. Roosevelt, Marshall, Morgenthau, Hull, Stimson and Churchill started discussing ways to get the U.S. into the war in Europe since mid-1940. Hull and Morgenthau even commissioned a "man on the street" poll to see if the public would be behind getting into the war. By a margin of almost 4 to 1 the answer was no. Hence Pearl Harbor.

Afghanistan was mainly a smoke screen for the actual prize of Iraq and the middle east. Take a look at the newspapers from the past month or so. Bush is antagonizing Iran, saying they are the ones supplying all the weapons for the insurgency now, yet shortly after the regime fell, we were being told that Hussein had hundreds of weapons caches created throughout the country so that his supporters (Saddam Feddayin) could resist us and whatever new government we created.

Oh, and Clinton didn't "bomb the hell out of Iraq." He had a few warplanes drop some munitions and maybe threw a handful of Tomahawks at them. Bush bombed the hell out of Iraq. And Clinton's bombing was justified by Iraq violating the "No Fly Zones."
