Dubya said we were bringing freedom to the Iraqi people.  He always used those words, too.  Dumbass.  "Bringing freedom to the Iraqi people."  What a bunch of bullsh!t.  Not even a prediction:  he actually claimed to be actively doing it.  And it never happened.  And the opposite happened.  And we're still there, still killing and dying, pissing away our moral and ethical foundation on a war to secure resources that we could probably learn to live without if we applied as much effort as we do to killing innocent people.

I think you're incorrect about what happened in Iraq after Saddam was overthrown:

Quote

On 16 October 2002, after a well-publicized show election, Iraqi officials declared that Saddam had been re-elected to another seven-year term as President by a 100% unanimous vote of all 11,445,638 eligible Iraqis, eclipsing the 99.96% received in 1995. Outside governments dismissed the vote as lacking credibility.

They then went on to have two actual elections after more than a decade without.

We won the Iraq War hands down within 3wks.

We should have come home and had a great big, victory, beer-bust.

 

Bush's mistake.....was not going.....but in staying.                      🍸

Iraq is a disaster.  It has been plagued by war since 2003.  Every reasonable measure of the quality of life and individual freedoms has been destroyed since 2003, with some parts of the country in a near constant state of civil war ever since.

been going on for thousands of years

You are an expert in Iraqi history now?  Iraq was part of the Ottoman Empire for longer than this country has existed. Before that, it was a part of several Muslim caliphates, the Parthian Empire , the Persian Empire,The Seleucid Empire The Babylonian Empire. Iraq means "The Old Land". But it is not true that it has been in conflict all that time.
