The paper examines how the U.S. preemptive strike on Iraq was both inevitable and overdue. The paper analyzes how critics of the current war in Iraq feel that the weapons of mass destruction (WMD) problem was exaggerated by the Bush administration. The paper then points out that President Bush's decision to go to war with Iraq was based on intelligence shared by previous presidential administrations. The paper further analyzes how other critics of the war point out the supposed lack of terrorist groups in Iraq. The writer argues that this could not be further from the truth and that Iraq is a state supporter of terrorism.
