There are many many rumours for the real reason that the US went into Iraq:

  1. Get control of their oil supplies to secure a steady low oil price
  2. Remove the unpredictable Saddam from power by force after the CIA had failed, then replace Saddam with someone that was more cooperative with the US
  3. They had bad CIA intelligence that he had nukes and/or chemical weapons, possible purposly planted by the CIA
  4. They thought Saddam had gotten hold of Red mercury, this would allow him to create suitcase sized nukes
  5. George Bush Jr. wanted to complete the job his dad started in the 90's
  6. To give a boost to the US weapon industry at first, then to give rebuilding contracts to other US companies
  7. Saddam had found ancient alien relics from Sumeria, and would not give them to the US
  8. Saddam had retrieved a crached UFO and was researching it without letting the US in
  9. Some of the Iraq people have genes from an alien race that impregnated women in ancient Sumeria, and the US is secretly trying to kill everyone that has still carries the gene
  10. The US wants to destabilize the region
  11. The US wanted to stabilize the region, nukes was a lie that they thought was justified
  12. The US wanted to kill the anti-christ rumoured to come from the region or gene pool
  13. The US is fighting a holy crusade against the muslims
  14. Saddam had made an allience with a alien race, and the US wanted to stop him. Rumours of giant scorpions genetically engineered by creation science aliens
  15. Saddam was working against the will of the New World Order
  16. The US needed an external threat to keep the US population afraid, and therefore more easily controlled
  17. The US needed an external threat to keep the US population entertained, and therefore more easily controlled, just like the fighting in the old Roman Colosseum was there to entertain and dozile the populus
  18. The New World Order wanted to reduce the population in the world
  19. The New World Order wanted to start world war 3
  20. The US are imperialists that crave new land to keep the economy from collapsing
  21. The US are imperialists that are securing future oil supplies by taking Iraq
  22. The US are imperialists that are wanted to conquer Iraq before Russia, China, or India did, again because of the oil
  23. Saddam had gotten his hands on an ancient star gate
  24. Saddam wanted to publically reveal the true nature of UFO's to the world, and had to be stopped before he did so
  25. A combination of two or more of the above

What is your favorite?

I like G, I, O, and V. I doubt it was only about oil.

My favorite is the giant scorpions.

Actually, I think it was about oil and about wanting to subdue Sadam Hussein & the rest of the Iraqui's.

Although we armed and backed him for years.

It would have been so cool if that was true, US army fighting giant scorpions in the Iraq desert. I feel a sci-fi film in the brewing...

Unless I missed it, you don't have the most obvious one: The US is a puppet of Israel and fights their wars for them. Ditto for Afghanistan. Ditto for Iran (soon).

Dollar hegemony. No one can be allowed to trade a major commodity like oil in euros.

After Gulf War One, the United Nations placed an embargo on Iraq to prevent Iraq from rearming. A blockade was introduced to check all shipping going into Iraq for weapons.

The United Nations also supervised all of Iraq's imports and exports.
This was called the "Food for oil deal" (Goole it yourself for a clearer explanation).

Saddam was a former ally of America in the Iran/Iraq war, but was double crossed by Bush senior.

Anyhow, Saddam was really cheesed off at America, and the Bush crime family in particular. So he conceived a very clever plan to destroy the American economy by breaking the US monopoly on the world oil market, which is what supported the value of the US dollar.

Every drop of oil, anywhere in the world had to be bought and sold in only two places on the planet. London, or New York. And the terms of trade were very strictly US dollars only.

In this way, the US had total control of the world oil market.
Any nation that tried to sell oil outside this monopoly was declared terrorist, and immediately attacked by the US military.

The US has held this monopoly since WW2, and many countries have been attacked, and (millions) of innocent people have died that tried to fight the US trade monopoly. It was the entire foundation of the strength of the US dollar, and the whole reason for America's wealth in the world.

So according to the terms of the UN, Saddam could sell his oil for US dollars in exchange for food and other imports, but not weapons.

Saddam cleverly went to the UN and said, "As Europe buy most of my oil, I would like to sell my oil to Europe for Euros instead of US dollars" As the UN is mostly made up of European countries, they could see the advantage in that, SO THEY AGREED !!!!

The US Administration were absolutely frantic !!!!
How dare Europe and the Middle East stab us in the back, we have an absolute God given right to dominate all international trade, and force people to use American dollars. If not we will wage war on anyone that tries to trade anything in any other currency.

So Bush went to the UN and came up with some BS lie about weapons of mass destruction. The entire world laughed at him.............

But Americans believed the lie.
Something like 80% of Americans believed the invasion and occupation of Iraq, against the UN, and against international law, was justified.

As soon as America occupied Iraq, it put in place a puppet government, and went back to the UN to have the food for oil terms changed back to USA dollars. So hero George W Bush saved the US dollar, and has murdered maybe 1.5+ Million Iraqi people, and 8,000+ Americans since then.
Just to keep the US dollar strong.

There is absolutely no way America can pull out of Iraq.
If it did the Iraqi people will most certainly again sell THEIR oil for currency other than US dollars.
So people keep dying every single day in Iraq, just to keep America wealthy.

Soon after this, IRAN decided to open up a THIRD oil trading market, (not London), (not New York), but a THIRD oil trading market completely outside American control. They said they would happily trade in any currency.

Again the US administration absolutely freaked out.
They are building a bomb !!!
We must immediately strike Iran.
Again the world laughed at America, nobody believed that lie either except Israel. Every intelligence agency on the planet, including the CIA knew Iran were not building a nuclear bomb.

So the US administration again wants to murder millions more foreigners to protect the US oil monopoly, but it is all much too late.
The monopoly is already broken.
Venezuela and other nations agreed to trade in non US currency.
So Venezuela is now a terrorist nation in the eyes of the US too.

The US bully is now screwed, the US dollar is dying, and the world is now free from bullying by the US military.

Obama can threaten any nation he likes with surgical strike, but the US dollar is now toast.

The US might as well pull out of Iraq completely, the whole US dollar war is lost.
And Saddam will go down in history as the guy that busted America financially. The financial bully has been beaten, and world trade is now FREE.

The good guys have won !!!!!
The entire world is now free to trade oil and prosper without fear of being attacked by America.

America is now doomed economically.
And all the guns, warplanes and nukes will never again return the prosperity to America that you stole from the entire world by force.

What is your favorite?

I really think it's a combination of many facits.

A) The US economy was unbalanced, prior to 2001, and war was declared before the depression took hold, instead of after the depression like in WWII

B) The oil backed federal reserve note only stood to gain from oil rich lands

C) In or about 2001 we reached peak oil production of known easily acceable oil reserves. We needed an event to move the world towards alternative energy sources.

D) Biblical prophecy will be fullfilled when a world dictator from the persian region much like Cyrus the great seizes power. Anarchy improves the statistical odds of this occuring.

E) Anchient artifacts from the orginal landing (See fall from heavan) still exist in the region and we needed to discover and seize what we could before 2013.

F) What it boils down to is total world domination will be achieved by the combined means of the IMF, World Bank, CIA, NSA, NY Stock Market, Federal Reserve, US military and US government before the beginning of 2013.

It's about money, oil and world conquest

No, the enemy has always been anyone that dares to stand up for the truth against American mindless greed and aggression.

We Australians dared to tell Dubya Bush, we wanted no part of his foolish, illegal, and immoral invasion and occupation of Iraq. He could shove his war on terror up his ass.
He didn't like that one bit.

His infamous reply was "If you are not with us you are against us".
And then the CIA then killed 200 Australians in Bali with that bomb.
Yeah, we sure learned from that..............

That was "our Australian 9/11" and it was a turning point that made just about every thinking Australian acutely aware what total despicable and immoral scum bags the US government truly are.

We Aussies knew that seven years ago.
Americans are just now beginning to realize the truth of that themselves.

America has around 170 foreign military bases around the world, and is currently fighting (and loosing) two wars that are only about preserving the US dollar, and preserving the heroin trade in Afghanistan (for the elite). And foolishly, The US gubbermunt now wishes to start up a third war in Iran.

China is at war with nobody right now.

Russia is at war with nobody right now.

While neither country is perfect, they have a lot more going for them as far as world peace and stability goes, than terrorist Israel or terrorist America.
