What is the difference between when the US attacked Germany WWII and Iraq 2003?
Both times neither country attacked us first. Japan attacked us and we attacked Germany and Japan. Al Qada attacked us and we attacked Al Qada in Afghanistan and Iraq. There are a lot of people against the Iraq war so tell me why attacking Germany was different that attacking Iraq.

Yea 3000+ people died at pearl harbour ( under suspicious circumstances )thus thrusting the USA into the war in Europe with Germany (which was not the nation which attacked them) and 3000+ died in New York on 9/11 (under suspicious circumstances ) thus thrusting the USA into a war with the middle east with Iraq (which was not the nation that attacked them) Wait!

On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked the US Naval Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. President Roosevelt asked congress to declare war on Japan the next day. Congress did so. Three days later, A. Hitler declared war on the US. That brought the US into the European Theater of the war.

On September 11, 2001, terrorist of Al-Qa'ida attacked the US. Al-Qa'ida at the time was based in Afganistan. We retaliated against the terrorist and their sponsors - the Taliban government of Afghanistan.

In April 2003, the US attacked Iraq after months of debate in the UN about weapons of mass destruction. Iraq had refused to follow the rules set down in 17 different UN resolutions following the original Gulf War cease fire agreement, and intelligence (now deemed not real good) siad that Iraq was building up it's supplies of WMD.

The US was right to depose Iraq's government regardless of the credibility of the intelligence. However, I'm not going to get into a political debate on that subject.
