  • Yes

    People need to overlook the fact that we're invading a country, and look at the true reason why. Countries don't go to war for no reason. Do you have any idea how much we helped that country? You people need to overlook the fact that we're sending troops over, and stop saying how we need to bring them home before the job is done. Most of the people who say we should not have invaded know nothing about warfare, or what we were even doing there. The citizens of Iraq loved having us there. We got rid of Saddam Hussein and made it much safer for them. People are so quick to blame George Bush for the invasion, when they forget that the president can only send troops over or a certain amount of time, and CONGRESS (which was democratic at the time) has to approve anything longer. I hate to break it to all of you who think that everywhere in the world is just super happy with sunshine and rainbows and unicorns, but you have no idea what it was like in Iraq under Hussein.

  • Yes

    Regardless of why you think we went to Iraq in the first place(I'm not claiming it was purely altruistic), defending Saddam's regime as an innocent sovereign state(as I've seen so many anti-war idiots do) is disgusting. The Ba'ath party committed many war crimes and atrocities(Same goes for the Taliban). No matter why you think we were over there, claiming that toppling Saddam's regime was bad thing is retarded.

  • War in Iraq Justified by the ends and means

    Iraq under Sadam Hussein was a very dangerous country. They not only had the potential for nuclear weaopens but harbored Al-Qeada militiants. Saddam Hussein personally praised the evnts of 9/11. He was and would have been a thorn to our side similiar to Iran. The war also established an ally in the regoin and a counterbalnce towards radicl countries in the regoin and OPEC

  • The U.S. was right to invad Iraq

    Most people say this was Bushes was for oil. That is simply not true. Saddam Hussein was a dictator in Iraq who was using chemical warfare against his own people. Is that right for him to do that? We saved thousands of lives and are setting up a democracy there.

  • Of course we should have!

    Some say that we were just hitting our heads into their business. I dont. Iraq was threatening our main partners in the oil trade and assaulting our allies. We had every right to attack them. Plus we had to stop Saddam Hussein as he was a dictator and it was our duty. He would have invaded both Saudi Arabia and Iran which would have destroyed our oil based economy.

  • Saddam Hussein is public enemy number one along with Osama Bin Laden

    Iraq invaded Kuwait so yes on intervening in the Persian gulf
    The world trade center came down so yes on the war in Afghanistan
    Iraq was building weapons of mass destruction and was going to us time like he the last 10 times since 1983 Iraq harboring terrorists including Palestinians and Al Qaeda was determined to strike us Iraq murdered any innocents Iraqis Iraq was a threat to Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Turkey and was defying UN resolutions and the international community Iraq tried shooting down our planes during the no fly zones they tried to kill George HW Bush when he visited Kuwait Obama was wrong George W Bush was right Iraq's actions were complete recklessness

  • America under Bush and Dick Screwed up big-time

    Iraq is in chaos now; there are Yazidis, Mendaeans, Chaldeans, Assyrians, Kurds and other Christians and minorities being slaughtered by ISIS everyday which Bushes genocidal war created. The war fuels anger within the Islamic community and is used as a recruitment tool for ISIS and other terrorist groups today. If Bush didn't invade Iraq, the Iraqi people would be in a much better shape today and the threat of terrorism would be much lower because Saddam Hussein led a very liberal, secular regime. There are a hundred dictators today and the US doesn't even care so why did they want to remove the dictator from Iraq? Simply because of oil and money for Bush, Blair and the Dick. Saddam Hussein was never a threat to the US he never had weapons of mass destruction and not a single 9/11 hijacker had an Iraqi citizenship or was related to Iraq in any way; most or all came from Saudi Arabia yet we never touched them and still consider them one of our greatest allies in the region. The US invaded Iraq for no justifiable reason what so ever, Bush and Blair killed more than 1 Million innocent Iraqi civilians and the war led to the deaths of more than 5,000 troops; completely a waste of human lives and trillions of taxpayer dollars. This is why we must prosecute the Bush and Blair administration in the International Criminal court in the Hague for war crimes against humanity and genocide.

  • On paper, a good idea. Not so much now.

    Overthrowing a violent dictator seems like a great idea. Lives are saved, the country is democratic, and everyones happy. But if you're going to kill 1 million civilians and let a cult like ISIS fester then you're left with a deeper shitehole than before. Its the reason we've had all these terrorist attacks.

  • WE ruined them

    Sure Saddam Hussein was a monster to his people but he still prevented the country from collapsing in on itself. Our idiot leaders thought that Iraq would just peacefully accept us and now we have screwed up the entire goddamn country. We should have just left them alone. Yes, when KUWAIT was attacked, that was a reason to intervene because Hussein did it for no reason. But for Iraq, its a no

  • Had nothing to do with 9/11

    When the Trade Towers in New York were destroyed on 9/11 the world mourned for our loss. We gained a considerable amount of latitude both at home and abroad to respond to the vicious attack. Our military geared up, we looked for the source of the attack and moved to deal with it in Afghanistan. That part I understood. Unfortunately, that was not enough for the entrenched military interests. In that spirit of fear and understandable support we went over the line and used that trust and opportunity to further an unjustified attack on an unrelated country, Iraq. It was a breech of trust that continues to reverberate out across the region. Ironically, this has only given greater opportunity to those that were behind the 9/11 attack.

  • The supposed weapons of mass destruction never existed.

    The whole rationale for the invasion was the existence of weapons of mass destruction that Saddam Hussein was never capable of developing. It was all an excuse to move in to take their oil reserves for the benefit of Dick Chaney and his Halliburton connection. Cheney, former CEO of Halliburton, had a severance package of deferred cash compensation, as will as over 400,000 shares in stock options. .

  • Big Mistake !

    We really didn't get nothing out of this invasion that occured. Saddam never had WMD. And never really put a threat on the US. The US now is paying for the damages, and many troops died. IT WAS A MISTAKE! We did more damage and now we look bad .

  • Yes lets go to war

    Sure...Lets kills 10 times the amount because everyone knows an american life is worth 10 iranians. Makes total sense. Invade a country to spread "democracy" makes sense. Lets build another government and hope the people of that country loved us after wards. Everyone knows its progress over tradition....
    Why is functional over sustainability?...
    We lost another war here...

  • Saddam was indeed bad

    Saddam Hussein and his regime was in no way good or even not bad. In fact, he was a brutal dictator who murdered people without hesitation, and he did commit war crimes against the Kurds and the Iranians. However, this is (according to most of our other actions) not a good enough reason to go to war without a clear exit strategy or goal. If this were the case, why do we not invade North Korea, Cuba, China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uganda, Turkey, Syria, or any other countries with terrible leaders? It is because other things count when one ponders the idea of war. In this case, we could eliminate a bad guy who did not really pose a threat to the U.S. (the president and his administration grossly twisted facts and presented them as hard evidence for an invasion to the American people and to Congress) at the cost of American lives, international popularity, money, growing anti-American sentiment in Iraq and the Middle East in general, and a greater strain on resources that should have gone to the war in Afghanistan. That seems like an easy decision. Also, the Iraqis really did not like us. That is why there was a massive spike in insurgent groups after anti-American protests. They did it because they did not like being occupied.
