The growth of the economies of Asia has dramatically increased oil demand.
Iraq under Hussein was producing 2 million or so bbls/day, its now over 3 million bbls/day and growing.
Assuming that we never invaded Iraq and didn't use a coup to remove Saddam, he may have gotten the sanctions removed and rebuilt the weapons program, as he intended to do.
But if the sanctions stayed that way, oil supply would not have increased, while demand still increased.
Meanwhile in Iran, their supply is down due to sanctions meant to stop their nukes program.
The increase in Iraq and Libyan oil supply has prevented market shocks.
We are not out of the woods, but if the sanctions remain by 2020, and Iraq and Libya are not destabilized, their supply will increase, driving down prices, and forcing Iran to the table.
If Obama was more willing to put the boot on China's neck, this might have been already over.
A lot of ifs and buts to justify all of that money and all of those lives.

Che may have a degree, but she's not the recipient of a well-rounded education. Most Americans aren't. If people don't know the basics of economics and American foreign policy as they relate to our day to day lives, they're not educated.

The war didn't cause the recession, Keynesian economics said that it should have made a boom.

Giving loans to underqualified people, letting Wall Street flip them, was the main cause.

It was exacerbated by the minimum wage increase in 2007.

Further spending hikes resulted in the slowest recovery since WWII.

The major gain, domestic oil drilling.

I wasn't aware that the Iraqis crashed our housing market and banks starting with the CRA in 1977. Pretty neat trick.

No, Clinton sitting in his hands through multiple attacks on US facilities during his tenure was a huge mistake. Saddam, Bin Laden and other terrorist groups and America haters should have never gotten so far.
Had Bush Sr. been re-elected, he'd have slapped them down like he did when they invaded Kuwait. Quickly and with very few American casualties.
We saw what Bush Sr. did during the Gulf War, didn't we?

He didn't do enough. If he had listened to Schwarzkopf we wouldn't have had to go through another 20 years of Iraqi idiocy.

If we had a President that had not been on his dead ass during the months leading up to 9/11/01. There would have been no need for war today would there? George W. Bush was more interested in vacations then protecting America from attack. Lets review what the man knew prior to 9/11/01?

1. Look at all of the warings that George W. Bush was given?

2. The lies that Condoleezza Rice told.

3. The lies George W. Bush told.

4. The TIMELINE leading up to 9/11/01!

Even when presented with a gift, Clinton DID NOTHING:

NBC News has obtained, exclusively, extraordinary secret video, shot by the U.S. government. It illustrates an enormous opportunity the Clinton administration had to kill or capture bin Laden. Critics call it a missed opportunity.

In the fall of 2000, in Afghanistan, unmanned, unarmed spy planes called Predators flew over known al-Qaida training camps. The pictures that were transmitted live to CIA headquarters show al-Qaida terrorists firing at targets, conducting military drills and then scattering on cue through the desert.

Also, that fall, the Predator captured even more extraordinary pictures — a tall figure in flowing white robes. Many intelligence analysts believed then and now it is bin Laden.

Why does U.S. intelligence believe it was bin Laden? NBC showed the video to William Arkin, a former intelligence officer and now military analyst for NBC.“You see a tall man…. You see him surrounded by or at least protected by a group of guards.”

Bin Laden is 6 foot 5. The man in the video clearly towers over those around him and seems to be treated with great deference.

Another clue: The video was shot at Tarnak Farm, the walled compound where bin Laden is known to live. The layout of the buildings in the Predator video perfectly matches secret U.S. intelligence photos and diagrams of Tarnak Farm obtained by NBC.

“It’s dynamite. It’s putting together all of the pieces, and that doesn’t happen every day.… I guess you could say we’ve done it once, and this is it,” Arkin added.

The tape proves the Clinton administration was aggressively tracking al-Qaida a year before 9/11. But that also raises one enormous question: If the U.S. government had bin Laden and the camps in its sights in real time, why was no action taken against them?

“We were not prepared to take the military action necessary,” said retired Gen. Wayne Downing, who ran counter-terror efforts for the current Bush administration and is now an NBC analyst.

4 verses over 1,000,000. Plus 4 million ran for their lives. What you have written is BS in comparison. I thought you were smarter than that.
