    There is evidence the war was over control of Iraq's oil. There is no evidence that Iraq was of any threat to the US. I guess some believe in sacrificing human lives for oil and some don't.

    You sit there and say those stupid things meanwhile the ME is turning into a powder keg and all your daddy does it talk talk talk.........Hell we had 4 people killed in that embassy by terrorists first your daddy said it was done for a video and then he finally fessed up over 2 weeks later and admitted it wasn't......He is without a doubt the most incompetent president we have ever had and it is costing us dearly.

    There is no evidence whatsoever that either war was over control of Iraq's oil.

    Not even close NP. The world was laughing at us while GWB was President. I traveled to several foreign countries during Bush's years, most everyone couldn't believe the buffoon that was leading this country. He took us into an unnecessary war that he put on a credit card and now we are saddled with trillions in debt. For what? He took his eyes of the prize. It took Obama to get the job done that GWB should have done in the first place. The problem was, GWB was a puppethead that was too dumb to not be misled by Cheney and Rumsfield and their neocon agenda.

    That doesn't make any of their deaths worth the cost of this egregious war. Navy...we all mourn their deaths...what I would like to see is our government not going to war on a whim.

    We should never be so ready for war. You are vet...you should know...war is hell. It is hell on the soldier...hell on their families...and hell on our treasury.

    We cannot be saviors of the World...that is not the point of our country. We should lead by example...not force.

    Yes, the majority of people were able to reason it out, just like I did, that the reason for the Iraq war was oil, and that we were lied to about a threat, but apparently not just anybody could do that like you said. There are still a few out there that believe that Iraq was a threat to the US.

    Good evening, Jack.

    At the time, the thought was that we had special"dibs" on Iraq's oil, to help pay for our involvement. How did that get started, or was that wishful thinking on some people's part?

    More of a fantasist than a reasoner, actually. I await your evidence that either war was to control Iraqi oil.
