I personally hold Tony Blair more responsible for this war (in Iraq) than I do George Bush. The reason is, Blair knows better, Blair is not an idiot. What is he doing hanging around this guy?Michael Moore
No country in history ever sent mothers of toddlers off to fight enemy soldiers until the United States did this in the Iraq war.Phyllis Schlafly
Before our kids start coming home from Iraq in body bags and women and children start dying in Baghdad, I need to know, what did Iraq do to us?Susan Sarandon
Our military superiority is so great — it’s far greater than it was in the Gulf War, and the Gulf War was over in 100 hours after we bombed for 43 days… Now they can bomb for a couple of days and then just roll into Baghdad… The odds are there’s going to be a war and it’s going to be not for very long.Bill Clinton
Vietnam was a lie but at least there was a political agenda. It was the domino theory. Iraq is about nothing but George Bush’s ego laced with imperialist ambitions. And it was helped by your government.Donald Sutherland
I hope we do not see another Iraq-type operation for a long time without UN approval and much broader support from the international community.Kofi Atta Annan
The invasion of Iraq was simply a war crime. Straight-out war crime.Noam Chomsky
This war has been motivated by pride or arrogance, by a desire to control oil wealth, by a desire to implant our programs.James Earl Carter, Jr.
Iraq is an unjust war. I thought then, and I think now, that the invasion of Iraq was unnecessary and unjust. And I think the premises on which it was launched were false.James Earl Carter, Jr.
Some say our approach is really just more troops for the same strategy. In fact, we have a new strategy with a new mission: helping secure the population, especially in Baghdad. Our plan puts Iraqis in the lead.... Members of Congress have a right to express their views, and express them forcefully. But those who refuse to give this plan a chance to work have an obligation to offer an alternative that has a better chance for success. To oppose everything while proposing nothing is irresponsible.George Walker Bush
Every Iraqi atrocity has confirmed the justice and the urgency of our cause. (Applause.) Against this enemy we will accept no outcome except complete victory.George Walker Bush
In any conflict, your fate will depend on your action. Do not destroy oil wells, a source of wealth that belongs to the Iraqi people. Do not obey any command to use weapons of mass destruction against anyone, including the Iraqi people. War crimes will be prosecuted. War criminals will be punished. And it will be no defense to say, "I was just following orders."George Walker Bush
How many Americans lives have been lost in this brutal and needless war? How many Iraqi? How many names do we know on either side?Moran Margaret Cho
Don't you think the soldiers look like they came straight from high school yearbooks, too young to be over in Iraq, fighting for no reason?Moran Margaret Cho
Of course, we're there because of weapons of mass destruction that do not exist.Moran Margaret Cho
