well as far as i understand it the Iraq war was unconstitutional because it wasn't declared by congress and every reason given for starting the war was proven to be fabricated lies so they had to eventually settle for the "were there for the Iraqi people" excuse.
why we are in that nation and why our nation is going down the drain economically supporting the unsupportable for the sole purpose of global and elite domination of the last vast resources of fuel in the world.
Just look at the global economy, the mess US is in financially, all the debt owned to foreign, communist and now terrorist states and see that obviously something is very wrong with our present government and its wars.

Looking at previous actions by previous administrations is not relevant here. I could show you historically where every single government in existence made similar or even more horrific mistakes. What does that prove? So we made mistakes in who we supported? What does that prove? Does that mean we should not help a people live free?
The "War", the "Conflict" what ever you wish to call it, is not illegal. Not even close. The fact that it has been tested in the courts and found to be perfectly legal should satisfy any thinking person. (Remember that just because you WANT it to be illegal in no way makes it so)
The last time Congress declared war was on December 11, 1941, against Germany in response to its formal declaration of war against the United States. This was accomplished with wording that took less than one-third of a page, without any nitpicking arguments over precise language, yet it was a clear declaration of who the enemy was and what had to be done. And in three-and-a-half years, this was accomplished. A similar resolve came from the declaration of war against Japan three days earlier. Likewise, a clear-cut victory was achieved against Japan.

The UN Used to be the decider on legality of international conflicts.
I mean, afterall, the allies ( Mainly the US ) Helped create this notion after World war 2.
Now, the UN had deemed that the US Invasion is indeed illegial.
But it seems so many people now ignore the UN, because they are curropt.
And that also, its these same allies that are the loudest doing the drum roll OF the UN being curropt.
Secondly, when most people rebutt the ''illegial notion'' they declare
'' US Congress declared the war, therefore it is LEGAL ''
Well, im afraid international law stretches a hell of a lot further than the halls of D.C.
1. ALL Iraqi WMD intellegence was WRONG
2. ALL Iraqi intellegence has found to be 'faulty-fraudulent-madeup-over- blown '
3. The US gvernment was advised of the faulty intellegence, but chose to us it anyway
4. The US Government lied about 'n-word'ia uranium, and outted a SPY when they declared as much
5. The US government used blatant propoganda to fool the public.
6. The US Government has pushed large multi-national corporations into Iraq, corporations tightly tied to US Government officials.
1 group believes the US Is the superpower, unmatched there fore should be able to do as it pleases when it pleases
that for there to have been any justification in this war, there had to be WMD's, or atleast EVIDENCE of WMD's... not just lies.
The war is illegial, because Iraq didnt attack the USA and because the USA tricked the world into believe WMD's existed, when they knew from dat dot they didnt.
