I missed this one...
Because the dumb ass thought the "mission was over" in 2003 and did his little thing with the AC carrier...
If he's so concerned about (as he said):
1) our safety
2) democracy and people of other countries with dictators
why doesn't he attack now Iran, N Korea, Somalia (ah, wait, he did a little bit), Sudan, and many more that have seen much worse conditions than people under Saddam in the 1990s, and are definitely more viable threat to us...
