There are several differences, actually. The main difference is that N. Korea appears to be an actual threat. This in contrast to an impotent Iraq that proved incapable of defending its own borders.

In the final analysis, Bush is a fucking coward. The fact he attacked what looked like a pushover and failed to do anything about real threats simply adds more strength to Frank Rich's argument that the war was about winning elections. Murdering people to gain public office and power. You know, like Hitler did. But the comparision to Hitler is unfair, because Hitler had more balls, and he didn't lie as much.

I think we were made to believe that we needed blood for what happened with 9/11. The Iarqis fit a mold of the ultimate bad guy to get since not many of our population know the difference between Afghanistan or Iraqistan

2. It was entirely obvious that we had no chance of success in Iraq (as defined by the Bush administration) before we even went in.
3. The people running our country are smarter than me, so they were well aware of 1 and 2.
4. Thus, the defense of our nation and 'shining ME democracy' had nothing whatsoever to do with the as yet undisclosed reasons for the invasion/occupation of Iraq.
