  • The Iraq War Caused the Recession because it put U.S.A Down the Drain.

    The war cost over 2 trillion dollars, put the U.S and Iraq at each others throats, pissed off countries like Afghanistan, Iran and Saudi Arabia. It destroyed relations between NATO and their middle east. In many ways it was similar to WW1 because it was a pointless war that cost way too much and killed way too many people.

  • The Great Recession was caused by the Iraq War.

    Many people the Great Recession was primarily due to the collapse of the housing market bubble. People were loaned money for houses they could not afford, which in turn drove up the price of homes. However the real cause of the Great Recession was the Iraq War that caused the economy to collapse upon itself and the great recession was what followed.

  • No the Iraq War Did Not Cause the Recession

    Saying the Iraq War caused the current economic turmoil in our country, or across the world for that matter, is like saying hanging around a high school – where adolescents abound – is going to cause you to have acne in your old age. Senseless, and with not a single thread of sound basis for support. It has been a long-standing economic premise that wars in general cause economic upswings due to many phenomenons, of which productivity is only one. Although the Iraq War did not create that type of economic windfall, it in turn had little or nothing to do with the recession itself. Good old fashioned liberal political tactics, trying to blame the administration in power at the war’s inception, for everything and anything detrimental that occurred during the same period in time. Nice for political swagger, but not realistic.

  • The Iraq War did not cause the Great Recession

    No, the Iraq War did not cause the great Recession. The Great Recession was primarily due to the collapse of the housing market bubble. People were loaned money for houses they could not afford, which in turn drove up the price of homes. These people who were overburdened with house payments then defaulted on their mortgages causing banks to collapse and resulting in huge losses in home values across the country.

  • The housing market bubble caused it!

    The housing market bubble is the main reason of what caused the recession and democrats are only using the wars to blame bush for their political benefits and they are blinding the public of the true cause of the recession and they aren't looking at the other factors of the recession of the u.s. economy

  • No it was the government's stupid spendings on stupid stuff.

    The Iraq war did not cause this. Americans caused this. Even before this, the economic downfall was starting already. That's what happens when rich spending people are put in a government of a country that is one of the top in the world. Did the war help? no, it made it worse, but the US is always ready for war. That's how we got our freedom, was through war and we had -$1000000 dollars and pulled though. Does it suck today? Yes. Will the US bounce back? Yes, we will, with the right leader. This war against Korea does not help and is likely to make it worse, but the US is never really going to die off. We have had a big impact on the modern world and we started the freedom talk. We may fall, but we will rise again. We have never really lost a war, yes we have had a draw (tie), but never really lost. The Civil War was the worst only because BOTH sides were Americans. If Abe would have lived, I think the US would be much more socially advanced than today.

  • No the Iraq War did not cause the Great Recession.

    No, I do not believe that the Iraq War caused the Great Recession and that reckless domestic spending and not the war is what caused the Great Recession. I believe that too much government intervention in the economy through massive spending programs are what contributed mainly to the Great Recession instead of the War.
