There is no debate for the legitimacy of the Iraq war - it's inherently illegal.
Hans Blix and UN weapons inspectors were on the ground, they weren't simply 'handed documents' - they found no WMD's and concluded there was no premise for strikes against Iraq.
As a non-American I don't have any influence over your electoral processes. But then again, it doesn't matter who you vote for you think it's difficult to fix an election?
As for the too much time on ATS comment - look at join date and number of posts. I think you definitely pip me on the 'need to stay off ATS' argument.
Finally, being contractually obligated to fulfill a role does not also require you to be morally or ethically void as a human. If I'm asked in my job to perform a task which will unnecessarily negatively impact another person beyond my moral acceptance, I won't do it nor allow another to. Hey maybe that's just me, let's face it most of the flock will do as they're told without thinking for themselves, and that's half the problem. If you sign up to fight, then that's what you're doing, you knew it when you signed and the consequences of your actions, which may result in your death, will not be known as heroic but dumb. Dumb for signing up in the first place, dumb for agreeing to aim weapons at innocents and militants alike and dumb for believing that the world is a better place for your meddling.
