Confused

Why did we invade Iraq again? I just can't remember.

And think about it - isn't it just a bit upsetting that we still can't agree why we started a war? Isn't it a tiny bit discomfiting that if you ask 10 people my initial question, you'll probably get 10 different answers?

No? You're fine? OK. Forget I mentioned it. Happy Fourth of July.

*laugh, laugh* Yes. Instead of simply lifting sanctions and resuming direct trade with Iraq, make up lies about Saddam, spend billions of dollars, send thousands of troops into harms way, to start an unpopular war near reelection, driving gas prices sky high.*laugh, laugh* Once you remove Saddam, return sovereignty to Iraq and facilitate free elections. Then sit back and wait for the oil to flow.*laugh, laugh* Logical. *Chuckle, chuckle*

Oh, no confusion!

We went into Iraq because of the WMDs. Duh.

No WMDs? It was to take out the terrorists! Wait, the terrorists didn't come to Iraq until after we went there?

We went into Iraq to liberate the people from Saddam.

And to create a Democracy. You know, like Vietnam.

Yeah.
