I never tried to tell you what you saw in Iraq. I simply stated the opinion that we should never have attacked Iraq, that W was a disastrous president, that endless war is a disastrous foreign policy, and that our leaders should be criticized and held accountable for their mistakes. Your posts are peppered with insults and taunts. You make yourself a jerk, I merely pointed out the obvious.
Ten years ago today, U.S. air, sea and land forces attacked Iraq. And the great goals of Operation Iraqi Freedom?

Destroy the chemical and biological weapons Saddam Hussein had amassed to use on us or transfer to al-Qaida for use against the U.S. homeland.

Exact retribution for Saddam's complicity in 9/11 after we learned his agents had met secretly in Prague with Mohamed Atta.

Create a flourishing democracy in Baghdad that would serve as a catalyst for a miraculous transformation of the Middle East from a land of despots into a region of democracies that looked West.

Not all agreed on...
