    If George Bush had no prejudice towards the Muslims/Middle East, would Iraq war be over now?

    Despite George Bush an ex army Major, his administration had a lot of bad policy in regards to the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, due to his lack of understanding and prejudice towards Muslims and Middle East and seriously under estimated the Taliban. Eg refusing to let Middle Eastern nation get involve with Iraq war. Pissing of Iran, etc. If George Bush has no such prejudice, lack of understanding the Muslim and Middle East and underestimate the Taliban, would the war be over now?

    That war was started under false pretenses for profit and he would have found a way to start it no matter what.  We will remain in the Middle East as long as there are profits to be made from it.  Iran and Syria will be next in all likelihood.  The powers that be want to control the oil and resources and they profit off of war. They don't care about the people over there and make them convenient scapegoats by promoting prejudice.  It's easier to dupe us into wars if every Muslim is a "bogeyman" to distrust and be afraid of.

    I see it very different. To me, Bush was naive about the Middle East. I don't believe he had any emnity towards the people of the region, just Saddam Hussein.  He ridicualously believed that "bringing freedom" would solve everything, not realizing the complex nature of political alliances throughout the Arab world. It's a region that's not ready for deomocracy; maybe someday.   But not soon. 
    Nobody underestimated the Taliban.  Most of their pre-9/11 leaders are dead.  What we did was fail to estabilsh a government and some sort of stability there.   An organzation like the Taliban fills the void, similiar to a criminal gang in a bad neighborhood which is underserved by its leaders. 

    Just to note:  Bush was not an Army major.  He served in the Texas Air National Guard and I believe never rose above the rank of Lieutenant.

    Neither GH Bush nor GW Bush were in the Army.
    GH was in the Navy, and GW in the Air National Guard.

    The question is irrelevant and ambiguous.

    the only mistake made by the USA was in not wiping from the face of the earth all of the middle  east that supports "radical ISlam",   which really is ALL islyme.   look at the mess we have for not finishing what we started.    many thousand and probably millions have died because we did not do the job.
