No, REALLY? I'd never have known from the lack of WMD found, the loss of tens, possibly hundreds of thousands of lives, the dislocation of millions, the expenditures of billions $USD, the destruction of Iraq's whole infrastructure, the years of terrorism and civil war that followed, etc. etc. etc.

Thanks for the tip, m'man...(rolls eyes)

Setting aside the huge waste of money and resources you have a catastrophic loss of life and made enemies for LIFE. People might forget damage to their house but they tend not to forget death or physical harm. There will be generations just waiting/living for revenge against the US now.

The only reason GW got away with this war/invasion is that it was close enough to 9-11 that no one wanted to question the government and were driven by blind misguided rage against the middle east. Heck I think it cameout that Iraq wasn't even taking babies out of incubators before Gulf War I 1990s as reported by false or inaccurate testimoney.

I think it was the late great General Schwartzkhopf that didn't want to continue the invasion in Iraq because he knew nation building would be too much. Surprised that Colin Powell signed off this so readily.

This invasion was the perfect example of the planned exploitation of 9-11. GW didn't even have an exit strategy but he . But the American people signed off on this war in fear of their vanity of not appearing "patriotic".

RIP those soldiers KIA and best luck to those injured durign the war and occupation. They were true believers being exploited.

PEACE!

A mistake happens when you are surprised by something, this was deliberate!!!

In a just world, Bush Cheney, Rumsfeld would all be handed over to the hague for War Crimes!!

Hello, until we deal with the fact that this country was lead to War that resulted in the deaths of more than 4000 US soldiers, more than 100 thousand Iraqi citizens and costs more than 1 trillion dollars based ON LIES, we will be at risk of doing it again!!
