Quite simply because extremists from other countries have come to the US and have attacked us. We are defending ourselves "against those" who would kill anyone that doesn't belong in their group. The extremists have made it clear, they will attack not only the US, but anyone and everyone, so we have to root them out. That's the only solution I see in the problem of terrorism.
If radicals/extremists and some moderates that might think on joining the radicals see that we are for real and will root every one of them, they might think twice before doing any other attacks. The best defense is a "strong offense."
Are there other reasons why we are in Iraq? of course, Iraq is not the only country that has extremists and have shown they will kill people in mass attacks. The war on terrorism doesn't end in Iraq.

Is the U.S. too hostile??
I pray that I live to see the day that the U.S. becomes as openly hostile to its enemies as they are to it on a regular basis. There is only so much (c) people should be expected to take in the name of being magnanimous all of the time.
I'm a United States citizen
and I don't give a sh** about all those third world countries that we're currently sticking our nose in.
Why do we continue to make other countries' business our business?
It's almost as if we're trying to control the rest of the world.
It's not up to the United States to keep peace in countries that aren't ours, so why the hell do we continue to do so?
those cowards and psychotic radicals
