    War in Iraq Over! Was it worth the Price...the way Bush/Cheney decided to fight it?

    I supported invading Iraq. I thought dismantling the whole shebang and staying around Marching Freedom at the point of a gun was a terrible strategy.

    What about it -- was the war worth the price?

    No.

    Why no?

    We'll be paying for decades, a generation of Americans are maimed. Why? Iraq will end up with what they need and it is said they actually desire -- a strongman government. Just not Saddam. Maybe Saddam lite.

    The insurgency is an internal situation. Combat missions are over. The military says so, not me.

    We invaded Iraq for reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with the insurgency as the insurgency started a-f-t-e-r we invaded Iraq. As a matter of fact, Bush/Cheney military advisers dropped the ball on nipping the insurgency in it's infancy. The rush to Baghdad took precedence. Much has been written on this. Commanders on the ground in the rear of the push to Baghdad are on record.

    note: please learn how to respond coherently in threads? it's annoying dealing with the type who learns nothing yet shouts incessantly.

    note: Tony Blair is now on record saying he didn't see the future in the way the Iraq war unfolded. Where were he and W.?

    I thought it was over when Bush said "Mission Accomplished." 7 years too late right?

    Or was there ever a war? Technically unless congress declares a state of war, America is not at war. :lol::lol::lol:

    what on the ground in iraq has changed? besides obama's political talk, i see nothing has change....the insurgency is still killing people just like before....the true "war" (undeclared) was over when we toppled saddam and his forces...then the insurgency began....so according to you, that is only internal and since its still continuing....nothing has changed

    i also think it is far, far to early to judge iraq...

    NO!

    Iraq is quite possibly the worst mistake this country has ever made (with the exception of the Native American Genocide and allowing slavery, but not by much). You have the US's kneeldown to global corporate interests to thank for it, too.

    I protested this war profusely, and to this day, condemn the disaster that was the Bush administration. Looks like us "traitors" and "surrender monkeys" were absolutely right, huh.

    Nope. As much as I hate Saddam Iraq was better off with him in charge then a bunch of Iran-supporting Islamists.
