It was not Colon Powell and it was not about public perceptions.

I heard Bush explain it quite cogently. He had two reasons:

1. There was a UN Mandate to evict Saddam from Kuwait. That's all. Mission accomplished.

2. Bush had crafted a coalition which included a number of Arab states. That coalition would have fallen apart if he had unilaterally decided to expand the mission.

Just FYI.
