I had to share this from Jordan Cooper:
Quote of the Week
“Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the United Nations’ mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression that we hoped to establish. Had we gone the invasion route, the United States could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land.”
– George H.W. Bush and Brent Scowcroft in their 1998 book, A World Transformed.
