    Nothing like asking half the pertinent question. Of course the world is better without Hussein. The real question is whether the United States is better off without Hussein? With the guts of that question really, was it worth the cost.

    I personally think members have answered the second half of that question.

    Survey: Veterans say Afghanistan, Iraq wars not worth it

    According to a recent Gallup poll, a majority of Americans believe that the Iraq War was not worth fighting.

    Yes, they have.

    The term "Pyrrhic victory" has been defined, whether the phrase was used or not.

    When the Iraq war started the favorability for was over 60%...Americans seem to grow weary of a war that is long and drawn out.

    Gee, ya think? This war was supposed to have been over in six months or less.

    The revelation that there were no WMD may have been another factor, as was finding that there was no plan to fund the war, nor was there an exit strategy.

    Actually, people oppose wars when they discover they were lied to about the reason for the wars.

    I don't know how old you are but the same thing was said about the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam Conflict and now these conflicts. Any time we are at war we always have a problem with funding it.......

    That's the way it is with unjust wars, they only can be supported with lies. Once the truth is known, support falls by the wayside.

    Iraq war costs instead used to run hospitals

    $1,900B cost of Iraq

    Would run 190 Full Hospitals ($125mil yr) for 80 years, never sending out a bill to any US citizen or business.
