    Not really. So you are for the US striking Syria...as long as we do not invade? You were for the Iraq War, both 1 and 2 since we were not imperialistic there? You were for the US assisting the South Vietnamese against the imperialist North? You were for the US aid to South Korea when invaded by the North... You were for the US going into both Grenada and Panama, since we were seeking no territory? You agree with the tremendous service the US did in Japan and Germany rebuilding our enemies after going to War with them and setting them free afterwards? So you pretty much agree with American foreign Policy from at least WW2 on?

    Sweeeeet.

    Re: Why was the Iraq War Illegal?

    It wasn't illegal, but I disagree with it. We spent 8 years there, and accomplished what, exactly? Yay, we killed Saddam, now more violent assholes are butchering people in that **** hole, and the Iraqis we trained turned out to be either completely worthless, or already in bed with the regional insurgencies. Hundreds of thousands killed, and not a damned thing to show for it.

    US foreign policy in that region was 'stagnation through destabilization'. Obviously, that didn't work out so well and thus policy was changed.

    yes 25 years ago they were ignored untill 9/11 attacks
    The US crippled Saddam and enforced a no-fly zone to prevent further genocide within a couple years of the genocide of the Kurds.

    not for kurds of course ,for oil
    The US never attempted to or recieved any oil. All of the infrastructure contracts went to China. There is no evidence, before or after, that the war was for oil.

    you know how many children died because of embargo applied to iraq ?
    None. Food and medicine were never restricted.
