    I can hear them now. "If we didn't go to war and then ended up having to put so much time and effort and money into their reconstruction, just imagine what we could have done with the United States."

    Okay, I'll bite and give the lunatic left-fringe impression that y'all are waiting for.

    GW's brain (Karl Rove) started this war in order to grow the economy, using all the popular support that GW had after the 9/11 Conspiracy (you've seen the video, the plane had a bump on it that proves it was remote controlled!), Rove had GW start pressing toward Iraq in order that businesses in the US would thrive and we would have an unending supply of oil. Then he and his brain (Karl Rove) bought a bunch of black-box voting machines with no paper trail so that they could steal another election and keep the war going!
