Also you have to be stupid (no offence) to believe what Bush has to say because they will write anything to make them look like the good guy, but you should think logicaly why did they go there, use your logic for once.

Chill down, dude. first no offence in telling me I must be stupid ( ), second I always use my logic, so don't assume you're the only smart cookie round here.
Third, sorry man, war wasn't really on oil.
The US got oil underprice when sanctioned Iraq was ruled by Saddam. Now the perspective is to get it at market price. Whats better ?

Hi,

Disclaimer: this post contains *alot* of sarcasm.

I would actually say forget the oil side of things in Iraq. I go more for the idea that Bush invaded at the request of the Saudis. Iraq was the only non islamic power in the area and the saudis were still worried about Saddam. Given that the saudis have a couple of trillion dollars invested in the americain economy and a couple of trillion more in the americain banking system that gives them a lot of leeway to pressure the americain administration. Given also that bush has very close ties to the saudi royal family and has a history of givening Saudis special treatement. One example allowing members of both the saudi royal family and ben ladiens family to fly around the united states the day after 9/11. As they say food for thought.

naaaa Trust the Fox news :P

fox: iraq is hiding their bombs !!!
inspection guy: nah we didn't find any yet
fox: so the iraqi's are not cooperating
inspection guy: oh they cooperate just fine, it'll just take a few weeks to inspect all iraq
fox: so they hid the nukes so you didn't see them
inspection guy: no we inspected everything very carefully
fox: but sadaam is a dictator and was mass-murderer
inspection guy: that's true
fox: sadaam has nukes and he's going to shoot us americans with it if we don't act now we all gonne die !!!
americans: fox is a respected broadcaster, so if THEY say it it MUST be true


-dutch laws allow babies to be killed if they're seriously handicapped for life
-texan laws allow people to be killed for being on someone else's ground
-iraqi laws allow people to be killed for being on ground claimed by sadaam



Sarcasm ends here

Peace

well as for the infidel thing, no one has come after NZ.
and i beleive oil is an Issue....but not the Only Issue. the terrorist are after america for their constant meddling in the middle east region...because of the oil... for fifty odd years.

this is purely cold war power politics coming back to the roost

US generals dint think about what would happen after the "normal" war.

Now its so many rebels there so they can scare the iraqi people that are co-operating with americans.They will spread propaganda and it will work, because americans arent doing enough to stop it.

We have to stay, even if its only to correct the mess we've made
I pretty much agree with this!!!
I agree with this but i did vote....................dunno if opinions matter these days cus no 1 ever listens. I think USA went abou tthe worng way at the begining of the gulf. They should of given the 40 day peace fire then gone in. Instead of it being all backwards. Alot of iraq say they don't want america in their but then some say they do. All i can say is that the clear up would of been quicker and reckon it would of stopped if bush took the friendly advice he was given

Actually iraq started off about the 3 oil rigs on their coast. Saddam threatened to blow em up if he didn't get what he wanted. So in theory the war was started over oil. But those 3 oil rigs supplied oil and fuel etc to over half the world so if they got destroyed then we'd have no fuel in europe for cars etc lol.

Let's See what i can dig up,

--The Ilusive Wepons of Mass Destruction

Hmmm havint Found any yet and probably given up hope of finding Substantial WMD's

--But But But they has Some 15 years ago

Yup they did have Some Chemical Wepons ..........what's the point a Lot of Countries have WMD"S bigger than that .....................and some 50 yesrs Ago my family had a very Feriece DOG that bit a lot of People .................so what's the point here.

--Saddam Had links to Mr. Bin laden and Al-Quida

ooooo really .................last time i checked AL-Quida was linked to rebels that were Fighiting Saddam ..................In their View Saddam was a Anti- Islamic Dictator.

--he was Funding Islamic Millitants

Emmm.........Iraq was the _ONLY_ Non Islamic State in the Middle East ...................and he was a Thong in the eyes of the Negibouring Countries.

--He was a Brutal Dictator

Yes sure he was ..................well thats what dictatorship is all about ............eliminate your opposition less they have a Chance to topple you ..................and last time i checked there are no REAL Democrasies in the Middle-East..................and too many people of his profile still exist on this Planet .


Oil was one of the factors _Not the Only factor_ ...............But it was more Economics and External relations to me .

Peace
