    Honestly, WHY Did the US Invade Iraq?

    Stardate 4419.6

    As questioned emphatically by The Martian Anthropologist, and as I mention in my personal statement on politics, a good question to ask is *why* the US invaded Iraq. The logical choice would be "to free the oppressed people of Iraq"... but then we can see that half of Africa is under the rule of dictators and really oppressive regimes. We have almost definitive proof now that it has nothing to do with the 9-11 attacks, or Osama bin Ladin, and it is hard to justify invading and occupying a country just to depose the leader (whom was an ally at one point, and then was not at another...) at the incredible cost of life we have seen.

    So when the right-wing hardliners drudge up their dirt on activists opposing this war, and call them traitors, and almost any other name imagineable, why can't they answer the ONE question that everyone already knows the answer to? Any answers?

    All opinions shared on this site are strictly my own. Some people may disagree and that is fine, but rude comments or overzealous debate will be curtailed. I enjoy civil discourse, and encourage independent thought. I oppose George W. Bush and his Wars based on lies.
