    They didn't like him, more than anything they feared him. Imagine the United States being run by the Mafia. That was pretty much Iraq under Saddam's crime family, the Tikriti.
    The US has a long established history of interfering in the business of other countries, and thereby causing mayhem and violence. Looks like we're going to do it again in Syria.
    There was already mayhem and violence in Syria. Iraq is similar enough to Syria for a similar course of events to have occurred, just with the religions switched. The difference is that we didn't sit by and watch, we turned things to our liking, if only by an inch.

    You think the Iraq War was about terrorism?

    No, instead we spent hundreds of billions of dollars and killed off a few thousand soldiers helping it happen.

    Cause the case in public dealt quite a bit with the threat of terrorism. Pretty sure that the threat from terrorism came up more than once in the run up to the war as a reason that we should go to war.
    I may be wrong.

    1. WMD program (it turned out Saddam was faking it).
    2. Violation of 17 Ch7 UNSCRs
    3. Put an end to Saddam's genocidal reign.
    4. Stabilize the region by ending Saddam's aggressive wars.
    5. Liberate the people of Iraq.

    2, 3, 4 and 5 were the only important reasons for me.

    Whereas members of al Qaida, an organization bearing responsibility for attacks on the United States, its citizens, and interests,
    including the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, are
    known to be in Iraq;
    .
    Whereas Iraq continues to aid and harbor other international terrorist organizations, including organizations that threaten the
    lives and safety of United States citizens;
    .
    Whereas the attacks on the United States of September 11, 2001,
    underscored the gravity of the threat posed by the acquisition
    of weapons of mass destruction by international terrorist
    organizations;
    .
    Whereas Iraq’s demonstrated capability and willingness to use
    weapons of mass destruction, the risk that the current Iraqi
    regime will either employ those weapons to launch a surprise
    attack against the United States or its Armed Forces or provide
    them to international terrorists who would do so, and the extreme
    magnitude of harm that would result to the United States and
    its citizens from such an attack, combine to justify action by
    the United States to defend itself;

    If you don't find a reason for invading Iraq to be important, does that reason actually exist?
    I may be wrong.

    It seems you've lost the conversation. RDS claimed it was all about terrorism, in reference to Iraq (Abu Ghraib).

    That's clearly BS.
