    Re: Was Invading Iraq the Right Choice?

    It is too early to say. Something this fundamental has to be evaluated over a generation or 2. I suspect that the end result will be positive but just not in a politically masturbatory way for either side who wants to declare it was right or wrong today. It certainly will make life a lot easier if we have to attack Iran to have Saddam out of the way. Of course once the region runs out of provable oil reserves, then it won't matter either way what happens there.

    There have been some good things that came out of the invasion:

    1. We don't have to ever worry about WMD

    2. Saddam won't be killing his own people anymore

    3. Saddam and his sons won't be raping and murdering teenage girls again.

    4. there is a Government although a shaky one........At least we gave them a chance...What they do is up to them now.

    I mourn the loss of every GI that was killed there.

    I could go on and on.
    1: There was no solid evidence of WMDs

    2 and 3: Protecting Iraqi's not worth American lives

    4: Not our job to fix every government

    Re: Was Invading Iraq the Right Choice?

    The fact that the neo-cons played on public fears arising out of 911 and spun it to justify invading Iraq, a country that they had wanted to invade for decades...and started a war based on lies and deceit....how can anyone with half a brain vote yes? This one is an absolute no-brainer.

    Yet it doesn't anger you that they basically died for nothing... as there were no WMD's, not even a potato gun...

    And don't give me this "Oh well Iraq is better off now" because that's bloody debatable.

    Saddam was a bad guy, and I'm glad he met his fate but life for the average person in Iraq is pretty damn bad either way, sectarian violence has made their lives a living hell.

    I knew an Iraqi girl who's dad was murdered by militants following the invasion.
    Like I said I am a veteran and mourn the death of every GI.......It is really bad but stack it up against Nam where we lost 58,000 men......

    I rsponded in my post to your other points so I don't see a need to do that again except to say You my left wing friend are the epitome of a Monday Morning QB

    Boy you are really into cliches today........Don't you have any thoughts of your own?

    I personally think its way to early to judge the Iraq war..............Time will tell...........Since I am neither a Republican or a Democrat it does not matter who is in office.......Whether its JFK A Democrat or GWB a Republican my left wing friend whom I voted for..........I would love to se a Conservative Independeent as Prez.

    False. Remember those fancy weapons inspectors? They had the best intelligence, and it was right.

    That entirely fails to address my point.

    The oil companies back in Iraq for the first time since 1973 believe it was the right choice.

    1. That is so much horse****..........Saddam was paying them off........One got 100K.

    2. I will draw you a picture now pay attention..........Sadly people die in war and its tragic but when you stack it up against Nam it was the safest war we have every fought...........I know your to young for it but at the height of Nam we lost more men in 1 month then we did in Iraq in 10 years.......
