    Are you kidding me with this ridiculous statement?

    First of all, you are correct about it being a dictator who killed a lot of his own people. That is where truth ends and opinion begins.

    You realize that we financed Iraq under Hussein right? We gave them money to fight Iran. You say we don't have to worry about a rogue nation? Yes, we do because now parts of Iraq (especially Southern Iraq) are now friendly towards Iran. The government there is still fragile.

    Truth REALLY be told...Everyone wanted to go in on the presumption of WMDs and harboring terrorism, but when both were proven to be false...that notion of war faded to a lot of people. When we toppled the Hussein regime, we inadvertently opened the floodgates to terrorism including a man by the name of Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi. We did later kill that man, but he made the lines of terror grow in Iraq.

    Also, we did nothing to protect our national security by being there. If anything, we further endangered it with our nation building.

    To say it was worth it to go into Iraq is ignorant and foolish.

    I don't remember us going back to "finish the job" in Vietnam. I do remember however us becoming trading partners with communist Vietnam.

    That wasn't the mission. The mission was to get a new government installed that would agree to a new oil law that would allow big oil back in Iraq again after 35 years of exile. No one expected the Iraqis to fight against us for so long.

    Can you link to this mission, what was it called, and can you link to the mission statement? Or... just admit you are using archived talking points.

    I think this says it all within that link:

    Report of an Independent Task Force
    Sponsored by the
    James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy of Rice University
    and the
    Council on Foreign Relations
    It is pretty credible, and far from just a wikipedia article.
