Was Iraq worth it? Hell no!
Was Iraq worth invading? You decide......
11 years after the invasion there are 4,500 US deaths there, countless billions of dollars spent, and a resurgent Al Qaeda is reeking havoc around Baghdad, killing other Iraqis, releasing prisoners, and doing pretty much what they want. The Iraqi government is more unstable and vulnerable to collapse now than at any time. Was getting Saddam out and finishing Bush41's campaign worth it? In another year Iraq will be worse off then with Saddam Hussein.
In my estimation, Iraq has been a colossal and utter failure. The more I think about it, the more this makes sense.....before we go to war, every politician enriching himself with taxpayer money must enlist one of his adult children in the Army and that kid will be on the front lines. Then let's see how many third-world invasions we so cavalierly undertake. I'm betting none.
It's easy to send other peoples' kids to die pointlessly, if your goal is to paint yourself as a tough-on-terror war hawk to the neo-con voters who think everybody's business is our business.
