Not that it's necessary, but in case you need more proof that the Bush Crime Family* wanted war and only war in Iraq, here's a story about John Bolton illegally getting a U.N. official fired. Jose Bustani of Brazil was the head of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which was created by a treaty signed by 168 nations. He was working on getting Arab nations to sign on to this chemical weapons treaty. This would have involved inspections of chemical facilities in Iraq and other countries in the Middle East, and the destruction of any weapons found. While Bush and his minions were stating publicly that they wanted diplomacy to work, privately their henchmen were doing everything possible to undermine it.
