I've been trying to look at the war outside of any conspiracy topic and I can't really figure it out. Which would lead me to believe that one of
the conspiracy reasons may be the actual one, but first I would like to clarify exactly what they think the reasons are.
First it was WMD's, which we now know weren't there. They said it was about Saddam but we've since executed him. Are we really supposed to
believe that we are there to spread democracy? Is that the explanation that our government is going with, because it makes no sense.
I find it hard to believe that our government loves democracy so much that it must allow everyone to experience the wonderful joy of capitalist
'freedom'. Oh if these heathens only knew what it is like to have numerous Starbucks and Walmarts in every town.
Some people say we're there to take their oil... ok so great, where is our cheap gas? It seems more likely that they went there to lower production
so that we are forced into paying higher prices. Oil was $20 a barrel when Bush was elected and now it's about to hit $100. Heck, I'd like to
believe we are in Iraq to take their oil but it obviously isn't that.
I hear Bush talk a lot about needing to keep the pressure going and how we need to support the troop surge but I feel like they aren't even giving us
an excuse as to why we've been there so long. The only thing I feel like I'm hearing is that the insurgency would rise and so on, but really... who
cares? Let them fight each other, isn't that underhandedly what we would want? I consider every human life valuable and don't wish death or injury
upon any of them but when it comes at the cost of our lives then it's a different story. Let your enemies take each other out instead of sacrificing
What is the official explanation of why we are still there? It seems like it should be so simple, maybe I'm overlooking something but it seems like
they are getting away without even giving us a reason. Like a father pulling out the "because I said so".
Sorry if this is simple and been discussed to death, kindly tell me to look somewhere else but I figured a lot of people on here would know more than
me. Thanks for taking the time to read over my thoughts and reply to my question. Have a great day
