Current politicians are not the only ones chiming in with an opinion on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and possible U.S. military action in Syria. On "FOX & Friends," former president George W. Bush offered his take on Assad while he was in office.
"I was not a fan of Mr. Assad," Bush said. "He's an ally of Iran and he's mad mischief."
Empathizing with President Obama's current situation, Bush said the sitting president has "a tough choice to make." But "if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing them up."
Bush's presidential legacy is rife with criticism regarding the search for weapons of mass destruction and the ensuing war in Iraq. As the Obama administration weighs the consequences of a military strike in Syria, comparisons to U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan have surfaced, creating serious reservations by the U.S. military.
