    The bottom line is this. We could debate for the next 50 years whether the the U.S. should have gone into Iraq in the wake of 9/11. The history is written. Less partisan eyes will judge the wisdom of the move decades from now.

    It's 2009 and we have a new president who's charged with keeping Iraq free and with keeping terrorists at bay there, as well as in Afghanistan and around the globe. How he goes about solving that terrorist threat is much more important than dissecting the nuances and minutia of the WMD debate yet again.

    Obama owns Iraq and Afghanistan now. It's his front to win or lose.

    Oh no, I wouldn't dream of getting in your way on that one, Mr. "test pilot instructor".

    That's as believable as the threats of a militarily impotent liar.



    You mean the same one who invaded Kuwait? Fought a war of attrition with Iran? You mean that same one?

    By the way, SCUD is not a Russian name, it is the code name assigned to the missile series in 1951 by NATO. (thought you were an expert?)

    But that's all in the past now, let the results speak for themselves.
    The dictator was brought into justice for his deeds, and now Iraq is becoming more and more of a democracy, a good thing, yes?
    The Dictators being brought to justice has not relation to our interests, Iraq becoming a Democracy is at least a decade away, even though great success has been had so far. Basically this operation was not in the best interest of the US the way it was carried out, even though the act itself did have majour implications.

    Can we agree in saying that the resulting consequences are increased terrorist activity worldwide?

    Well there is not enough evidence to correlate the two events.
    What I will say is that if the Iraq war was handled properly we would be in a far better position Geopolitically, and our security would be better off.

    Indeed, Saddam's trial wasn't really an American interest, but wars aren't being justified by interests alone.
    Also, I believe that spreading democracy is one of the biggest American interests there are.

    What should have been done, in your opinion, for it to have been "properly handled"?

    I think de-Baathification should not have been undertaken. That was perhaps the biggest mistake of the invasion and occupation, other than Rumsfields ignorance of using too few soldiers.

    In a nutshell, if we could go back, use surge troop numbers and never de-Baathify Iraq, the whole thing would have been ten times more successful.
