    Damn, voted for the wrong option. Fail.

    No, not the best idea in our history.

    No, it wasn't the right thing to do, nor was going into Afghanistan. Neither of those countries attacked us, and what we've been doing is fighting an illigitimate action in two countries, under the guise of "fighting terrorism", which isn't anything that can be fought in an actual war.

    Invading was right, nation building was wrong.

    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.


    Jet is right. Some places still don't have electricity or running water. children are still witnessing violence on a daily basis and many US troops have unnecessarily died.

    I don't think that it was necessarily a bad choice. However, I definitely think that the war was poorly managed after the initial invasion.

    Come on Redress your smarter then that. You remember the American inspector who Saddam gave 100,000K to.

    You would play that game if I said it going to rain today to ask me for a link. I will give you the Inspectors name.........It was Scott Ritter

    We're both social liberals, but he's a fiscal liberal, and I am not.

    With the info we had then yes. We all thought that they had WMD, and people blame Bush when we simply were mistaken. I was also the right choice because of better safe than sorry, protect our ally Israel, and how the ME hates us. They still hated us before because of certain things that idk if I'm allowed to mention on this board, and how Clinton was an idiot in bombing a Sudanian pharmacy, not releasing the test results, and getting involved in Bosnia and surrounding countries. Keep in mind I wasn't alive or barely around when this stuff happened with Clinton but I've read up on history to make up for it. My 2 cents.
