How many of you think iraq war was a mistake?

Recommended Posts

Native...

 

I might disagree with you...

 

Saddam agreed to cooperate with weapon inspectors as an agreement to end the Gulf War...

 

And obviously he didn't

 

 

There were no WMD's because Clinton wiped them out so say news sources.

I think the Iraq War was a war of choice. We should have never gone into Iraq and it's inconceivable we're still fighting in Iraq almost two decades later.

this war is merely an extension of the initial Reagan/Bush invasion 37 years ago.

Clinton wiped them out?

 

 

Explain this statement.......by Clinton

 

"People can quarrel with whether we should have more troops in Afghanistan or internationalize Iraq or whatever, but it is incontestable that on the day I left office, there were unaccounted for stocks of biological and chemical weapons."

-- Ex President Bill Clinton, Jul. 22, 2003 (Interview with CNN Larry King)

Im curious.

Yes a no.

 

Clinton and Bush attacked Iraq for the same reasons.

 

 

There were chemical and biological WMDs that Saddam used on his own people. No nuclear WMDs were found.

 

 

People lived in horror under Saddam...now he's gone.

 

Iraq still has big problems and it spans across multiple presidents...including Obama.

"The disappearance of Saddam Hussein means that a lot of current and former top officials in the United States and other Western governments can breathe easier. The story of the West's complicity in many of the tyrant's most horrific crimes will remain untold, at least by the one man who could have spelled it out most clearly."

THE NEO-CONS WANTED AND NEEDED 9-11 IN ORDER TO INVADE IRAQ

HENCE....9-11 WAS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN

Here, in stark contrast, is part of the Bush-Cheney anti-terrorism record before September 11, 2001:

-- Backed off Clinton administration's anti-terrorism efforts.

-- Shelved the Hart-Rudman report.

-- Appointed new anti-terrorism task force under Dick Cheney. Group did not even meet before 9/11.

-- Called for cuts in anti-terrorism efforts by the Department of Defense.

-- Gave no priority to anti-terrorism efforts by Justice Department.

-- Ignored warnings from Louis Freeh, George Tennant, Paul Bremer, and Richard Clarke about the urgency of terrorist threats.

-- Halted Predator drone tracking of Osama bin Laden.

-- Did nothing in wake of August 6 C.I.A. report to president saying Al Qaeda attack by hijack of an airliner almost certain.

-- Bush - knowing about the terrorists' plans to attack in America, warned that terrorists were in flight schools in the US - took a four week vacation.

-- By failing to order any coordination of intelligence data, missed opportunity to stop the 9/11 plot as Clinton-Gore had stopped the millennium plots.

-- Blamed President Clinton for 9/11.

I was completely against it. I had been a big supporter of Dubya's early military response in the wake of 9/11, and had even volunteered to go back on active duty to do whatever I could do to help defeat the people who had attacked us.

 

From day one, I knew who had attacked us and I knew it had nothing to do with Saddam and Iraq. I knew that it was total bullshit that Saddam would EVER team up with Al Qaeda given the fact that AQ's overarching mission was the destruction of Arab secular nation states just like Iraq. I knew it made zero sense for Saddam to give OBL WMD's - even if he had had them - for fear that OBL would use them against Iraq.

 

I knew that the entire "nationality" of Iraq was a fiction imposed on the region by Sykes-Picot and that putting an artificial border around Sunnis, Shi'ites , and Kurds would never result in Jeffersonian multicultural democracy blooming on the banks of the Euphrates no matter how badly Dubya and neocons wished otherwise.

 

Dubya had the whole world behind us after 9/11. If he could have kept his eye on the prize.... if he could have formed coalitions to defeat Islamic extremism, instead of overthrowing Saddam, the results may have been civilization altering in a very good way. It was a brief window of opportunity and Dubya slammed it closed.

 

Saddam was an asshole, to be sure, but he was a tinhorn who could ruffle feathers in the middle east, but was no real threat to us. In fact, Saddam did three things better than we were able to do without him: 1.) He effectively kept Iranian regional hegemony in check. 2.) He prevented Al Qaeda from using Iraq as a staging ground and a recruiting gold mine, and 3.) He kept Sunnis and Shi'ites from slaughtering one another.

 

We would have been much better served if we had left Saddam alone to do those things he did well, and concentrated on OBL and AQ worldwide - with the help of a much more willing coalition of nations who would all have benefitted from such an endeavor.

Do a pole on it

I would like to see the results

 

Benson...

 

The president of the US said Saddam had WMDS......

And the previous president said the same....

The head of the CIA said it was a slam dunk

And numerous Dems voted for the war after reviewing the intel....

 

And yet the UN weapons inspectors couldn't find ANY Trace of them for 13 Years, No WMD's, Zero, Nada

Were the inspectors allowed to inspect immediately after the UN Resolution or was it a couple of months before they were allowed to inspect specific suspected locations wiped clean.

arguing facts while only remember half of what took place then.

Most of our political arena was on board with the WMD thing. Not difficult to research.
