After years of failed diplomacy and limited military pressure to restrain Saddam Hussein, President Bush made the difficult decision to liberate Iraq.
liberate verb - grant freedom to;

Wow! We acted just in the nick of time! The Sanctions were about to be lifted and the "no-fly-zones" were coming apart at the seams. If we had waited even one week longer there would have been no international pressure or threat of military action whatsoever!

Bring 'em on!

We may be good citizens, but make no mistake, they are the very best of us.
the poor will be paying for this war, but no worries. The trickle down effects of no-bid contracts to the vice president's company will benefit all of the super wealthy and the very wealthy and maybe, eventually, the upper upper middle class.
It shook us from our complacency in the belief that the Cold War's end had ushered in a time of global tranquility.
It turns out that the lack of a military super power enemy actually
We are Americans first, Americans last, Americans always.
