On this day in history: 2003

The 2003 State of the Union Address was a speech delivered by U.S. President George W. Bush on Tuesday, January 28, 2003. It outlined justifications for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. It began his discussion of the “war on terror” by asserting, as he had before September 11, 2001, that “the gravest danger facing America and the world, is outlaw regimes that seek and possess nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.” Of such regimes, that of Saddam Hussein was the worst, and “a brutal dictator, with a history of reckless aggression, with ties to terrorism, with great potential wealth, will not be permitted to dominate a vital region and threaten the United States.” The domestic brutality of Hussein and the benefits of liberty and freedom for the Iraqi people were briefly noted near the end of the speech.

…and so Chimpy added to his long list of crimes against humanity.

    Bad things happen when the Supremes steal elections.

Go ahead, Punk, make my day
