"We think the price is worth it." - Madeleine Albright (details at bottom.)
Likewise, I think the use of depleted uranium in Fallujah, leading to countless miscarriages and deformed children, was worth the price to pay. You know, the price *we* paid.
The non-existing WMD that, after all, may have existed, certainly justified the invasion. Rumsfeld & Co. Could not have known that, their brains were inventing stories that were not real. We can not hold them to that.
Saddam's moustache alone is enough to justify this war. He even rejected to speak English on 60 Minutes. How could we trust him?
On May 12, 1996, Albright defended UN sanctions against Iraq on a 60 Minutes segment in which Lesley Stahl asked her "We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" and Albright replied "we think the price is worth it."
Yes,the decision to invade Ira was the right one.If the United States had not taken action we really do not know what would have happened.Saddam Hussein was getting more and more brazen when it came to the actions he was taking and he would not back down until the US took some kind of action.
Yes, the decision to invade Iraq was the right one, because there were dangers to the United States in Iraq. Iraq was a nation that posed a threat to the United States and U.S. interests. The country is a lot more stable, and that is good news for the United States.
Look at Iraq today. Saddam Hussein was not a good guy, but looking at the chaos that has recently ensued in Iraq, should make anyone realise that we wasted trillions of dollars and millions of lives on a war that yielded absolutely no benefit for either Iraq or the West. Now we have the mess in Iraq to sort out.
After several years of chaos in Iraq, it is clear that the decision to invade was a bad idea. Iraq was not responsible for the terrorist attacks in America, and the Iraqi government was not developing weapons of mass destruction. The war was too costly in terms of lives and money.
The area is no better off than it was when we invaded, many would argue that it's worse. The reasons we went in were, as we all know, complete and utter garbage. We aren't safer as a country. This invasion struck out in every way it could have, it didn't help our citizens and it didn't help Iraqi citizens either.
We entered Iraq and began the Iraq War based on the false allegations of the Bush administration. I believe Bush wanted to do what his father refused to do, many years before. I do not believe we were justified in starting that war or invading the country and we had no business being there.
