In the build-up to the Iraq war, the United States used Iraqs alleged weapons of mass destruction to justify the decision to invade the country.
What were the real reasons for the war? What were the costs and benefits from the US point of view?
REAL REASONS OF THE WAR
1. Control of Iraqs oil: Second only to Saudi Arabia, Iraq possesses more than 60% of the worlds known oil reserves, amounting to 115 billion barrels. Thanks to the war, American oil companies returned to Iraq, 36 years after Saddam nationalized them. Remarkably, when the war started, oil was just at $26.00 a barrel. After the invasion, prices kept rising to new heights and reached a record of $145.75 in 2008.
2. Preservation of the U.S. dollar as the worlds reserve currency: In late 2000, Iraq converted to the Euro in exchange for oil. Had an increasing number of countries followed suit and shifted away from the dollar, the U.S. would have been dealt a huge blow inflicted by a plummeting dollar.
3. Elimination of a threat to Israel: The centrality of Israel in any U.S. Mideast strategy is a foregone conclusion. Iraq possessed Scud long-range ballistic missiles which directly threatened Israel. In 1991, Iraq attacked two Israeli cities with Scud missiles. It was the first time Tel Aviv had been hit in the history of the Israel-Arab conflict. Saddam also doled out thousands of dollars to families of Palestinians killed in fighting with Israel. Toppling him stemmed a source of support to Palestinians and eliminated the direct missile threat.
4. Weapons field-testing: In real-battle mode, the Pentagon could use a long list of high-tech and newly developed weapons, such as the highly destructive nano-wave weapons, e-bombs, sensor fuzed weapons, laser weapons and agent defeat bombs.
5. War profiteering: The U.S. targeted the privatization of the Iraqi infrastructure by granting lucrative (no-bid) contracts to the likes of Halliburton, Blackwater, Chevron, Shell, Lockheed, DynCorp, and KBR, all of whom were unwavering supporters of the Bush administration.

Putting Sanctions on any Country Sovereignty for Israel's Terrorism Tyranny, is illegal and an International War Crime. This is not open for debate or discussion,.... it's the Law/.
Imposing illegal Sanctions on Iran, elusively being involved with Israeli Terror, who were/are killing their Persian scientists, creating havoc in their land by sponsoring terrorism and bringing hardship to this Country's Sovereignty is against International Law/and our fouding father's Ideology.
Bringing unjust covert operations and upsetting it's Persian peoples way of life by destabilizing the Country for Terrorist Jews Evil Agendas, is unlawful and a multitude of War Crimes and goes against our Constitution and Godly Truths.
Our Country was founded on Truth, Liberty and Freedoms for all, by our founding fathers and they would have had any Administration impeached and declared an act of Treason/ for what has been going on this Country, since JFK's death..
The late great President John F Kennedy gave his life up for the real Truth and was in the process of dismantling Illegal Israel's Nuclear Facility, after he had dismantled the Zionist Federal Reserve Bank.

653 syrians butchered today, syrians are being slaughtered as we speak by the butcher of syria bashar assad. Families are burying their murdered members that's alose includes burying infants and children. A bomb thrown from a syrian jet on a residential house has no idea where a infant who is breast feeding at that moment or a young child is or the multitude of other innocent victim's are. Bombing. Residential apartment houses is a hiler nazi approach that bashar assad uses against his own syrian populations that he rules on as a dictator . Its is now the 65th anniversary of the top 10 nazi era figures who were hung after trial in nurenburg germany . Bashar assad will face the same human slaughter charges , bashar assad has to be reminded every day that he is a wanted murderer and he will hang after he is caught.

Speaking of: "......the top 10 nazi era figures.....", you left out the ONLY ones to be Elected PM to A U.S. Subsidized, Proven Nazi Colony:
"How Israel was Founded"
EXCERPT "After leaders of the Third Reich committed atrocities against the Jews during World War II, they were tried, hanged and buried, both physically and under the contempt of humanity.
The opposite happened to the bloody and arrogant terrorists of Israel. Ben-Gurion, Begin, Shamir, and Sharon were all elected to leadership of the nation.
This reflected the anti-Palestinian, terrorism-friendly mentality of many Israeli voters.
The Encyclopedia of the Palestine Problem documents, from United Nations records, more than 650 attacks by Jewish settlers and the Israeli military against Arabs between 1948 and 1998. CONTINUED

Israel Hires Internet Soldiers to Penetrate American Forums, Chatrooms
Israel hires Internet soldiers, Israeli students and demobilized soldiers get paid to pretend they are just regular folks and leave pro-Israel comments online. Israeli Foreign Ministry Deputy Elan Shturman is quoted from the Israeli Occupation Magazine saying,Quote:
Our people will not say:Hello, I am from the hasbara department of the Israeli foreign ministry and I want to tell you the following. Nor will they necessarily identify themselves as Israelis, he said.They will speak as net-surfers and as citizens, and will write responses that will look personal but will be based on a prepared list of messages that the foreign ministry developed.

I hope you'll express the SAME outrage concerning Innocent Victims butchered by ALL Genocidal Monsters!
Especially the Censored ones Massacred by U.S. Funded Terrorist Regimes.
Please consider WHY you hear NOTHING about Israel's Genocidal, "Palestinian Solution" aka "Plan Dalet"
They used to enter houses and kill women and children indiscriminately: Deir Yasin Massacre, 09.04.1948
http://avoicefrompalestine.wordpress.com/2010... they-used-to-enter-houses-and -kill-women-and-children-indis criminately-lest-we-forget-de ir-yasin-massacre-09-04-1948/# _ftn3
"A chilling account of the massacre is given by a Red Cross doctor (Deputy Inspector General Richard Catling, who arrived at the village on the second day and saw himself the mopping up as one of the terrorists put it to him.
He says that the mopping up had been done with machine guns, then grenades and finished off with knives.
Womens bellies were cut open and babies were butchered in the hands of their helpless mothers.
Around 250 people were murdered in cold blood.
Of those 250 people, 25 pregnant women were bayoneted in their abdomens while still alive.
52 children were maimed under the eyes of their own mothers, and they were slain and their heads cut off.
Their mothers were in turn massacred and their bodies mutilated. About 60 other women and girls were also killed and their bodies mutilated.
British interrogating officer, Deputy Inspector General Richard Catling, confirmed that:
The recording of statements is hampered also by the hysterical state of the women who often break down many times whilst the statement is being recorded.
There is, however, no doubt that many sexual atrocities were committed by the attacking Jews.
Many young schoolgirls were raped and later slaughtered. Old women were also molested.
One story is current concerning a case in which a young girl was literally torn in two.
Many infants were also butchered and killed.
I also saw one old woman who had been severely beaten about the head with rifle butts.
Women had bracelets torn from their arms and rings from their fingers and parts of some of the womens ears were severed in order to remove earrings.
ZIONIST CRIMES AGAINST JEWS
EXCERPT: When the Zionist ideology was born, its adherents were a rabble of malcontents, considered maniacs by the majority of Jews. Today the majority of American Jews have been lured and coerced into blindly supporting the Zionist ideology and the State of Israel, but before the Balfour Declaration most American Jews were opposed to Zionism."

Israeli war veteran details his part in 1948 war
EXCERPT A former Israeli soldier has revealed information on atrocities, allegedly carried out by Israeli soldiers during the 1948 war in Palestinian territories.
Neumann admitted to being involved in ethnic cleansing, massacres and racism against Palestinians and said he had chased off women and children after helping dispense with males in local villages.
He said he also helped burn the villages.
The former soldier said Israel had gone in to "inherit the land" from its rightful owners.
He claimed the reason for the 1948 war was "Zionist ideology," saying: "The land was not empty when we inherited it. Like all ultranationalist movements, Zionism requires the murder and expulsion of people and the destruction of all evidence of their existence. Those not destroyed must be permanently subjugated by the ethnicity in charge." CONTINUED

American Blood for Zionism's ever Expanding, "Greater Israel" has long been "The Plan" of America's War Mongering, Zionist Policy Makers:
Neocon Middle East Policy:
The 'Clean Break' Plan Damage Assessment
A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm is a definitive Middle East strategy authored and implemented by operatives in the highest levels of the US government.
There is just one problem. The plan was a strategy for Israel, not the United States of America.
Neocon Middle East Policy reviews strategies and consequences of the "Clean Break" plan authored by Richard Perle, David Wurmser, and Douglas Feith in 1996.
It analyzes the core assumptions of the policy, cost of tactics that have already been implemented and discusses the likelihood others will be executed in the future.
Neocon Middle East Policy then turns to the most difficult questions of all, "Can a policy crafted for a foreign government and presented to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu serve as a blueprint for US regional policy?
At what cost in credibility, blood, treasure and American integrity? At what cost to Israel?" Neocon Middle East Policy is a must-read for anyone concerned about the convergence of US and Israeli foreign policy in the Middle East. CONTINUED
JEWISH WRITERS CLAIM POWERFUL ZIONISTS DROVE USA INTO MID-EAST WAR FOR SAKE OF ISRAEL
-Jack Bernstein, Author, The Life of An American Jew in Racist Israel (following prediction was made in 1984!)
"The Zionists who rule Israel and the Zionists in America have been trying to trick the U.S. into a Mideast war on the side of Israel.
" They almost succeeded when U.S. Marines were sent to Lebanon in 1982.
The blood of the 250 American Marines who died in Lebanon is dripping from the hands of the Israeli and American Zionists.
If more Americans are not made aware of the truth about Zionist Israel, you can be sure that, sooner or later, those atheists who claim to be God's Chosen People will trick the U.S. into a Mideast war against the Arabs who in the past have always been America's best friends.
Dr. Henry Makow Phd., February 10, 2003? Writer, Inventor of Board game "Scruples"
"If the U.S. gets bogged down with heavy casualties on both sides,
Americans are going to blame big oil and Zionism for getting them into this mess.
Everybody knows that:
1. The only country that fears Iraq's WMD's is Israel;
2. American-Jewish neo-conservatives on the Defence Policy Board (Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz) planned this war in 1998 and made it Bush Administration policy;
3. The purpose of the war is to change the balance of power in the Middle East so Israel can settle the Palestinian issue on its own terms; and 4. Congress trembles in fear before the Israeli Lobby, "AIPAC."
At this perilous juncture in US history, there is no effective opposition because Zionist Jews appear to control both parties.
The Jewish "Anti Defamation League" considers it a barometer of anti Semitism to say, "Jews have too much power."
But is something anti-Semitic if it is true?
Anti- Semitism is racial prejudice. Zionist power is not a racial prejudice; it is a fact of life.
When a special interest group hijacks American foreign policy, it is a patriotic duty to say so.
In recent decades, Zionists have succeeded in making support for Zionism synonymous with "Jewish."
They have made Israel appear to be a vulnerable country facing annihilation in a sea of bloodthirsty Arabs.
In fact, Israel has 200-400 nuclear bombs and is one of the most powerful nations on earth.
It has evaded many opportunities for a just peace because its secret agenda is to dominate the region.
Israel keeps this quiet because most Jews, including Israelis, did not sign on for that".CONTINUED
It takes Guts for these Jews to stand up to Zionist Thugs!

DUBAI, Oct 10 (Reuters Breakingviews)- Iran is suffering from economic mismanagement, but isn't threatened by imminent collapse. The $480 billion economy is troubled, but recent forecasts from the International Monetary Fund suggest Tehran's finances aren't in dire straits.
Even with its oil exports halved to one million barrels per day, Iran's current accounts are still in the black. The massive fall of the rial last week was mostly homemade.

A US analyst says the key pro-Israeli neo-con elements who ran the former George Bush administrations foreign and military policies and planned the 9/11 attacks are now running the campaign of Republican presidential nominee Shit Romney.
Rejecting US President Barack Obama administrations official account that the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 terror incidents in 2001, Osama Ben Laden, was killed by American forces and then dumped in the ocean, Kevin Barrett said in a Press TV article,Real perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks are still at large.
And whats worse is that they control most of the United States Federal Court system and mainstream media, and are running the campaign of presidential candidate Shit Romney.
#97843 Oct 10, 2012
In a recent article entitled "This war on terrorism is bogus" in The Guardian (UK), Meacher suggests that high-level U.S. officials were complicit in the 9/11 attacks and allowed a "new Pearl Harbor" to occur in order to put into effect a "blueprint for the creation of a global Pax Americana." The document was drawn up and signed by the leading architects of the war on terrorism in the Bush administration.
The "blueprint" Meacher refers to is a document entitled Rebuilding America's Defenses, written in September 2000 by a neo-conservative "think-tank," the Project for the New American Century (PNAC). The PNAC document calls for large increases in the defense budget to transform the U.S. military into a global force. The plan calls for "a substantial American force presence in the Gulf," among other things, which it says, "transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein."
The people involved in the PNAC, and those for whom it was drawn up, are the leading war hawks of the Bush administration: Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Jeb Bush, and I. Lewis Libby. The project includes key U.S. supporters of the extreme right-wing Israeli Likud Party, including the Lithuanian-born historian and former dean of Yale, Donald Kagan, and his two sons, Fred and Robert, William Kristol of The Weekly Standard, and the Orthodox Jewish rabbi Dov Solomon Zakheim, the current Comptroller and Chief Financial Officer of the Dept. of Defense.
Nearly all of the PNAC participants have come out of one of two elite academic institutions: Yale University or John's Hopkins Nitze School of Advance International Studies.
