Invasion of America = invasion of Iraq?

At Jamestown celebration, Bush says US proud to spread liberty

Excuse for the present invasion:[S]peaking in the town of Williamsburg after touring the Jamestown settlement, he said: "America is proud to promote the expansion of democracy, and we must continue to stand with all those struggling to claim their freedom.

"The advance of freedom is the great story of our time, and new chapters are being written every day, from Georgia and Ukraine, to Kyrgyzstan and Lebanon, to Afghanistan and Iraq."
Excuse for past invasions:[L]ike the queen, Bush underlined that Jamestown planted the seeds of democracy and free enterprise in the New World, culminating in the English colonies' Declaration of Independence from the motherland in 1776.

"From these humble beginnings, the pillars of a free society began to take hold. Private property rights encouraged ownership and free enterprise. The rule of law helped secure the rights of individuals," he said.
