George W. Bush's Argument For Declaring War On Iraq

Decent Essays
After the terrorist attack of 9/11 President George W. Bush wanted to declare war on Iraq, and chose not to wait on the approval of Congress. He made this decision not because they were a direct threat the the moment, but because they could be a possible threat a year or five from that point in time. Bush’s claims for declaring war are not reasonable by any means. Claiming that they could be a threat down the road years from now, is not a practical reason to declare war on another country, you do not have the be the one to strike first to stop a potential threat to your country. These “emergency” actions by Bush were illegal and should have caused him to be impeached.
