Like do you think we should be there? Was there really any weapons of mass destruction? Did we do it for the oil? How long are we going to be in there? Will this lead to World War 3? Are we going to invade Iran? Are we going to cut and run? Is Bush an idiot? And what ever the hell else you want to right about. Just want to hear your opinions on the subject, cause I'm sick of hearing all of the journalists opinions.

Honestly, I think it's undebateable that this was a stupid war.

There NEVER were any weapons of mass destruction.

And I don't really care about Bush. Bush was just the puppet they used. Personally, I think he just BARELY has started to grasp how much he's screwed up and now he doesn't know how to fix the mess he started.

But oh well. Every great nation has an expiration date. I just wonder when it'll be our time.

Who is "they'? I still can not fathom the notion so many hold that Bush is an imbecile. He was smart enough to trick the country into enough electoral votes, twice, and was smart enough to graduate from an ivy league school. The debacle of Iraq does not fall squarely on his shoulders and it is not fair that the media, right, left, middle, whatever, puts all the blame on him. The constitution sets up a three headed power structure with checks and balances. Congress could have stopped us from going to war if they wanted back in 04, but they didn't, yet all the blame goes to G.W. We, as a nation, could have taken him out of power but we didn't and we still bitch and complain about how bad of a leader he is even though we put him in a position of power.

The war in Iraq should never have dragged on for as long as it has, and horrible things have happened because of it. Too many casualties on both ends and the price of war, in terms of lives lost, is too high.

Did we do it for oil? Depends on who the "we" is. Just about everyone was caught up in the patriotic movement and alot of people were for taking out Saddam at one point in time. There were no WMDs, so we know that wasn't the real reason... but I refuse to believe that the executive branch of the government would sacrifice so much just for oil. Or that the legislative branch wouldn't put aside their petty partisian differences to stop it.

Our "expiration date"? The hell are you two talking about? When did China expire again? When did Great Britain fall off the face of the earth? What about France?
"But what about Rome? They fell?" Then what the hell is Italy? Oh, and what about Germany? Certainly after WWII they should've "expired." But, wait, no... they're the third richest nation in the world, behind US and Japan.Sure, those nations are not as dominant as they once were, but they're still here. People make it seem as though nations just cease to exist once they lose their coveted number one spot.

WWIII? Are you JOKING? Just because the US gets into a war doesn't mean the entire world will be engulfed.

Are we going to invade Iran? Will Jerry Orbach return as Lenny Brisco? No.

I think we invaded Iraq for two reasons:

1. Is the oil of course, for one the US takes like 5% of the oil in the world, plus where pumping out the last of the oil as we speak. So that shits important.

2. Is the land. We need military bases up there because of all the oil in the middle east. So know we have an easy way to invade any other country to get more oil.

Plus we already started a civil war in Iraq who knows what that will ignite in the other country's. Plus Iran is fucking with England, theres just so much shit happening in the middle east right now anythings possible even world war 3. All it takes is one stupid decision by one country to start a war, look at 9/11.

And where not even in a war right now where in a conflict. The congress are the only ones who can start a war. Bush is a dumb ass and he should have never been elected twice, that goes to show you the percentage of dumb asses in our country.

Yeah, we invaded Iraq for the Oil because, what, we want to destroy Opec? We're going to invade all the Opec nations one by one. But.. wait.. no..

If we wanted more oil, then shouldn't we invade Canada? Afterall, we get most of our oil from them. And after them, lets head down south to Mexico. They're numero dos. Saudi Arabia, the Opec nation with the most oil, is third.. so, who knows, after we go to war with Canada and defeat their polar bear riding cowboys, we'll use California and Texas as launching points for the second Mexican-American war.

Yeah, we're not in a war. "Iraq War" just sounds so much more marketable than " Iraq : Project Conflict! " "Shit" has been happening in the middle east since the 19th century, when, 'ya know, the whole thing about Zionist jews returning home. WWIII must've started right after WWII.

9/11 wasn't an entire country's decision.

Bush can start a war. Look up the War Powers Act. It gives the president the authority to start a war. Bush, being the dumbass that he is, must've cheated his way through YALE, right?

Everyone who voted for Bush over Kerry is a dumbass, you're righ-- AH, THE MAVERICKS ARE ON! Can't.. concentrate..

We don't invade Canada because Canada is our slave and do whatever we want them to anyway. Why go through the trouble of getting another army together when you don't need to?

If Canada did whatever we wanted to then they would have joined the "Coalition of the Willing" when the war first started. Or, pledge some soldiers to help the US war effort. Or cede whatever land we wanted to us.

And the point wasn't about invading Canada and taking their Polar bear infested army. It was about taking their oil. If the war in Iraq was all about oil and that is all it is, then we would've invaded Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, etc, etc.
