On March 19th in military 2003

On this day in military 2003. The US, Great Britain, Australia and Poland, supported by other countries invade Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein from power. Saddam Hussein had spent the previous twelve years doing all in his power to avoid complying with the the surrender document that he had signed at the end of the First Gulf War. He was still trying to develope weapons of mass destruction and funding terrorists around the world. Finally, spurred on by the events of 9/11 and the successful "takedown" of Al Qaeda and the Tailban in Afghanistan, President George Bush throws down the gauntlet to the UN and Saddam Hussein: Either comply fully or be invaded. The UN, lead by Kofi the Appeaser, France, Russia and Germany, huffed and puffed and did essentially nothing, saying that any invasion of Iraq would not be legal. The US and it's allies told the UN to "stick it where the sun don't shine", and started Operation Iraqi Freedom, the invasion of Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein from power. After two years, Saddam is sitting in a jail cell waiting for his trial on war crimes to begin, his two sons are dead (thanks to the 101st Airborne), Iraq had completed its first democratic elections and terrorists are being killed "for the cause". Anyone with half-a-brain can see that the world is a better place thanks to President George Bush.
