Its an opinion so don't take this wrong...because I don't really know with certain anymore why we went to war with Iraq.

If it was about a removing a dictatorship that was hiding and aiding the evil terrorists that attacked america and the attacks will now stop; yes it was right.

If it was about removing an dictatorship that was going to once again destabilize the region by another expensive war on his neighbors, and disrupt everyone in the world; okay sure it was right.

If it was about making sure that our country (USA) would have its oil for heating during the winter and driving our cars; no it wasn't right.

I have no idea what is going on...I have been on many deployments to aid countries in need in the past, but they always had a definite goal, and a definite time table. These last couple of times the US has gone out...the goals ain't as definite...the timetable ain't sure ...and they haven't come back as quickly (look at Kosovo and Serbia, for examples other than middle east) ...and its really starting to bother me.

Once again, its just my opinion

Well im split as several here are! Marksmen put it in a good way, also the question is if all of the reasons for it was the right once, Mark did a good job covering that!

Yeah, then use the I dont know option, Darkmb.

Mark is right, I think. It's been a mostly right decision but for some reason it's getting confusing now. I'll have clearer ideas around Sept I guess, and I hope that'll be in the positive way.

If you ask me, Saddam had it coming for 12 years. We shoulda kicked his ass in '91. This war was long overdue. Dubya is just finishing what his paw didn't.

The French and Russians were pushing to life the sanctions.

It would only have been a matter of time until Saddam was free to get revenge on the US for forcing him to abide by the UN resolutions. He would have come after us, though perhaps through terrorist proxy.

We most definitely needed to remove him.

I think the rebuilding effort is a way to make amends with the Iraqi people for failing to help them sooner and turning our back during the post Gulf War revolt in the south. We can't undo our history with Saddam, but we cna make it right by helping the Iraqis now.
