U.S. terrorism only encourages those who would attack our nation

With the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum it is appropriate to review his presidency. The most notable event was the Iraq War. Since the justification given for the war, Iraq's possession of nuclear weapons, was totally false it is reasonable to refer to this as a terrorist attack by the United States against Iraq.

More than 100,000 Iraqis died as a result of this war, which means that it was a far more deadly terrorist attack than the attack on the United States on 9/11. Some might conclude that George W. Bush was a more deadly terrorist than Osama bin Laden.

Unfortunately the United States continues its terrorism with drone attacks on Pakistan, Yemen and other countries. The drones terrorize millions of people and kill many civilians. The result is that large numbers of people in these countries strongly dislike the United States. This greatly encourages and gives assistance to those who would attack our country.
