    No it didn't. All we did by invading Iraq was to help the terrorists up their game. So I guess if you're all for terrorism then yes, it had to be done. But I don't support terrorism, and our involvement in Iraq has been major folly.

    When Saddam was pulled out of that hole and his sons dead, that's when we should have left. I don't agree with nation building either.

    It never WAS worth it. I never had any expectation that it would be worth it. You can't give a country a functioning democracy, when they can't even live with each other peacefully, or cooperative at a fundamental level. When it comes to making your nation (or your life) better, you have to earn it.

    Saddam was no threat to us, there was no need to help the terrorists out by destabilizing Iraq.

    What I don't understand is why people want to continue to be wrong. Yes, a lot of SMART people were hoodwinked. If you were one of them, consider yourself in good company. It doesn't mean you're stupid, it just means you were tricked by a campaign of deception. The Iraq war was a terrible idea, and had a predictable outcome.

    To paraphrase a good ol' Texas boy, 'The only thing worse than being wrong for ten years, is being wrong for ten years and one day.'

    As if genocide, invading neighbors, violating 17 unscrs, institutionalizing rape, mass killings and intentionally starving thousands is stable. haha Like the situation could have got any more ****ed up.

    Oh yeah, democracy and human rights with a few terrorist attacks and a handful of deaths is way worse than genocide, invasion, institutional rape and intentional starvation.
