Why would anyone continue to claim that the Iraq war was a success?

    A trillion or so spent.
    Maybe 1/2 million Iraqi dead.
    5k or so dead Americans and thousands more maimed for life.
    Bombings and such continue there.
    Their infrastructure still is far below prewar standards.
    6 billion or so US money just plain lost and unaccounted for.
    No Useable WMD's found.
    Their oil money did not pay for their reconstruction.
    And we are not even out of there yet.

    Since no conservatives have commented yet, Ill speak on their behalf:

    "Because God would want us to kill them because we are a Christian nation"

    the only one that can actually be refuted is the last one. We won't be out of Iraq so to speak for a very long time. We still have soldiers in Germany, Japan, and Korea. As for the others, hey thats conservatism for ya

    Ba-jillions spent, defense contractors and "Family friends" made wealthy... Check.

    People scared into letting Dumbya do whatever he wanted for 7 years... Check.

    Lots of 3rd world brown people killed... Check.

    Country deep in debt, record deficits, excuse to attack New Deal era programs... Check.

    How exactly do you think connies define "success?"

    At least they have universal health care thanks to Republicans.

    UHC is good enough for Iraqis, but not Americans

    Well why waste money on America's health when we dump it all on a country full of those "evil" Muslims?

    i'm a conservative. i thought it was a bad idea 10 years ago, and it hasn't gotten better with age.

    the single worst foreign policy move in the history of the united states.

    Yep a preemptive invasion policy is NOT what America is supposed to be about.

    I was floored when I realized we were actually going to invade.
    I was always against the Iraq war.

    Typical fucking lefty, thinking that all conservatives think alike, just because the left give up free thought for their borg-like behavior.

    You people (and by 'you people' I mean fucking morons) are an embarrassment to the country.

    your unintended irony is dripping all over the other posts.

    please clean up after yourself.

    thanks
