And there are a TON of conspiracies related to this war, and ones that are not imagined...whether you're for the war or not, the conspiracies are
there.... I am for this war, but I am under no delusion that it's primary goal is to rid Saddam of WOMD... Instead, it's to (in order)
1. Establish a powerful influence in the region.
2. Long-term, to strengthen the US economy. (this point actually has many facets to it...but for simplicity...)
3. Curb a little bit of OPEC's fanatacism through the installation of a pro-western member.
Those against the war use the above as arguements many times. I however, do agree with the arguements, but I am more for the US' best interests (as
a US citizen), so I'm still for it. There are other beneficial side effects...but they are secondary concerns...
1. The liberation of Iraq
2. The stability that may come with the removal of Saddam.
Unfortunately, Bush chose to circumvent the UN, which resulted in some world-wide backlash. It could have been avoided (in ways that many on this
board pointed out), whilst still achieving the objective...
Yep, this war has EVERYTHING to do with conspiracies....
