    Iran and Iraq have had quite a rocky history. It's one of the reasons we supported and helped the Ba'athists take control of Iraq. Kuwait side drilled into Iraq to steal their oil. Invasion is well over reaction, but had proper diplomacy been in place we could have stopped them. Kurds are probably the only legitimate thing up there, but we don't really go against any other country which horribly abuses its people; so we can't really use that as an excuse.

    The reason Saddam is dead is because we went in to Iraq, overthrew the government, destabilized the area, and allowed the people to off him.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    They would never have been a problem if we had stayed out of Iraq. We did create them by invading Iraq. Also most of them did not go to Iraq, many of them were already there. They were mostly citizens of Iraq who did not like another country occupying theirs.

    The ones who were already there never would have bothered us. The ones that would have came from other countries.

    Someone is eventually going to start a full blown re-hash of Iraq so let's start it here.

    Israel feared WMD's and would have attacked Iraq in self defense, starting a massive M.E. eruption, if we had not preempted their attack.

    So... if Iraq was for oil... we've definitely been swindled, because I don't think we've gotten a drop from there yet.

    We're currently in Iraq, as a military presence, because our last president was a corrupt and evil liar.
    We are not "at war" with Iraq, to my knowledge; we are merely there to aid the Iraqis in rebuilding their nation. We're just about done with that now, and at this point we're moving our stuff out. We have a lot of stuff there, however, and it will take us more than a year to get it all out.

    That's my understanding of the situation, at any rate.

    We secured the flow of oil to the industrialized world and stabilized the global markets.

    We are at war with anybody who gets in the way of our agenda, and Iraq was at the time.
