We should have never invaded. We wasted money, lives, and time. Iraq is worse off and so is the entire world.

Allela... We entered Iraq originally, when they invaded and robbed Kuwait. After they were pushed out of Kuwait, the first inclination to total victory was stopped because of Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons capability, which increased brain cancers amongst our troops and subsequent deaths. The US knew potentially thousands of body bags suddenly coming home wouldn't maintain the US concept of decency for us, nor the Iraqi people. So, the UN was used to impose restrictions on Iraq and requirements of their disarmament. These were constantly violated by Hussein and the Baathists, who developed training areas and actual 747s for terrorists to prepare for assaults on Western civilians and other targets. Hussein also continued to test and violate restricted air space, targeting and then retreating from attacking US aircraft enforcing the air space. Hussein bragged of chemical weapons. He sought nuclear technology and the yellow cake uranium with no other purpose than weaponization. (That yellow cake in tons was finally shipped to Canada after the second Iraqi incursion.) After 9/11, Iraq, as other radical Islamic nations, was offered to become part of the war on terror, at least supporting it by word. Instead, Hussein and the Baathists praised the attacks on America and continued training terrorists. They were ultimately given fourteen months to even slightly change their tune. They refused. Preparations for a disposal of the Stalinist/Islamic/Baathis regime were put in motion. The length of time preparing was due partly because of radical pro-Islamic Democrat resistance to war starting a week after 9/11. During that time, the Baathists were able to ship most of its chemical warfare stockpiles out of Iraq into Syria. This resulted in the false meme that Hussein had no WMD, a continued lie by the same forces in the US now arming radical Islamists in various additional countries and doing nothing to protect our own Ambassador, etc., resulting in the back door additional arming of radical Leftist Islamists with 400 surface to air missiles out of Libya.

We should not have invaded Iraq after 9-11. It was a waste of lives and resources and has caused the entire world to enter financial and violence chaos.

Teabaggers don't even know?

Whoops, look who I'm referring to.

ExxonMobil, BP and Shell were among the oil companies that "played the most aggressive roles in lobbying their governments to ensure that the invasion would result in an Iraq open to foreign oil companies".

"They succeeded," she added. "They are all back in. BP and CNPC [China National Petroleum Corporation] finalised the first new oil contract issued by Baghdad for the largest oil field in the country, the 17 billion barrel super giant Rumaila field. ExxonMobil, with junior partner Royal Dutch Shell, won a bidding war against Russia's Lukoil (and junior partner ConocoPhillips) for the 8.7 billion barrel West Qurna Phase 1 project.

Italy's Eni SpA, with California's Occidental Petroleum and the Korea Gas Corp, was awarded Iraq's Zubair oil field with estimated reserves of 4.4 billion barrels.

Shell was the lead partner with Malaysia's Petroliam Nasional Bhd., or Petronas, winning a contract for the super-giant Majnoon field, one of the largest in the world, with estimated reserves of up to 25 billion."

Not all the oil was for us.

That's the sad part.

It was for oil companies to put on the world market FOR PROFIT.

Theirs.

And our people and money did most of the leg work.

More liberal bull shit, as expected. You forgot to blame George Bush and Dick Cheney by name. That's not what a good liberal foot soldier does. Your better than this!

Didn't forget, everyone already knows the obvious.

Except teabaggers.

They're still trying to blame the invasion on non existent WMD's.

What excuse are you going to use for the unnecessary war the barry is about to involve us in?

Oh, and he is still spending the same money on the others. Why is that?

Poor teabagger.
Bush knew that the low information TMZ crowd could barely pay attention to their own needs, much less be up to speed on world events. That is still the problem.
Case in point: Obama still blames the stagnant, stuck in the mud economy on George Bush and Rush Limbaugh and his mouth breather minions nod their heads in agreement. Even though their Boy King has been in charge for half a decade.
