Considering of all that happened, the Iraqi war is becoming more of a problem than a victory. We are loosing a considerable amount of troops with this 1980's guerilla warfare. Aren't the US military trained for such actions to prevent bombings? The army is using our troops as police officers instead of military men of honor! I mean please! The US are making their soldiers prevent looting instead of shooting down terrorist! To my understanding, this fault should be placed upon the President. There was no planning and hardly any stradegy. If they did not rush in there like idiots, the US could of done more extensive damage with strategical mission operations. I Would like to hear from everyone!

Yea huge mistake, dead coalition and Iraqis everyday and no end in sight, and the American taxpyer gets to shell out 5billion$s a week, Bush refuses to get out and congress keeps bankrolling it by borrowing money from asians, in 2006 we must elect only people who will not authorize moneys for iraq, if we don't the US govt will go bankrupt and the USA will ceace to exist, withdrawl under fire is the only option.

Bush knows where Saddams WMD's come from he has the reciept. Even if you are nieve enough to think the war in Iraq was really over terrorist and fictitious WMD's would that really justify 20,000 odd US deaths not to mention the countless innocent iraqi civilians. This war has turned into vietnam II. When will people wake up and realise that the people who profit from these wars NEVER GET personally affect by them. Do you think white house officials send there kids to die in Iraq
. The people who start the wars should go and figth them end of story. Have any of the ATS members had any iraqi people done anything to you that warrents a war with them ? If the US has a proplem with there CIA puppets let them deal with him like they did JFK. Why anilate a whole country for one guys actions ?. Money its that simple. Cause if the US was really hunting terrorist then why do they have such close ties with Saudi family ?.

So an entire country can be blown to crap and back so long as one aim is accomplished?

Hmmm, the idea that having blown the country apart the US and UK now have a responsibility to rebuild the place really should be looked at some more.

The Arab nationalist govt in Iraq never supported alqueda type terrorism and everyone knows that, they supported Palestinian suicide bombers but so does every arab country-and israel is an oppresive segregation state and not a democracy so f them anyways, and iraq had no nuke program-which is the only real wmd-any college kid can manufacture poison gas or screw around with a bio-toxin-that stuff simply isn't that dangerous.

Does it really matter if it was a mistake now? There's no turning back, unless you want all the troops to leave Iraq and then even more people die in the country than they are now.

There would be complete chaos in that country if we left, even moreso than now. At least we're attempting to organize it...

Yeah, that is true, but do realize that we are spending to much on this war for the President's pleasure. We will continue TILL it is OVER. The problem is, it will effect our economy and military department severely. This will let other countries push us around and we will have a poor defense guarding our country when we are sort of broke. We should of went for a much larger target than Iraq! We are having so much trouble with Iran and N. Korea, but we are waisting and killing all our troops on pathetic guerilla warefare?

Err, what WMD's? You mean the ones that turned out not to be there in the first place?

What "terrorist allies"? You mean Al Quaeda? The same Al Quaeda that was funding rebel groups trying to unseat Saddam?

That is exactly what I was sayin. We go in looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction and only find the parts to make them. Now...if we did not go in, in the long run they could of developed them.

Well, Saddam DID have a nuclear program at one time, that was never forgotten. Israel bombed the living hell out of Iraq and destroy and leveled it all, which was the right decision in my opinion.

Anyhow, the intelligence was very faulty, and it is known that there were no CIA operatives in Iraq...plus, Saddam didn't help the suspicion when he told inspects where they could and couldn't look.

It's not to say I agree with the war...I don't think war was necessary considering they are alot of ruthless dictators on this planet.
