Iraq and World War II

Recently, President Bush has been comparing the Iraq war to World War II. They are actually quite different. Consider:

1. Japan really did attack the U.S. at Pearl Harbor. Iraq did not attack the U.S. and had nothing to do with 9/11.

2. Japan and Germany really were aggressors. Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction (WMD - chemical, biological and nuclear weapons) or much of a relationship with al Qaeda. We went to war against Germany and Japan based on the truth, we went to war in Iraq based on a lie.

3. Congress declared war on Germany and Japan. Congress never declared war on Iraq. World War II was fought in accordance with the Constitution of the United States of America, the Iraq war is not.

4. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) mobilized the whole nation to fight fascism and won. Bush cut taxes, told us to 'go shopping' and seems to be losing.

5. Germany and Japan were the greatest military powers of their day, Iraq was a military non-entity. Nonetheless, liberal Democrat FDR won World War II and conservative Republican Bush appears to be losing in Iraq.
