Was Iraq Worth It?

Well if Iran or Iraq demanded inspections of the US for WMD's all the while they had their fleets deployed off our coast and their war planes flying in our skies; would we comply? Sadam was a B@stard, but he wasn't ours to deal with.

Other than ending WWII, when have WE used WMDs?

Did you forget the evil empire threatened us with THEIR nukes all those years? That we still have threats from the likes of China and Russia? Your idea of equivalent situations is typically juvenile ... as most of the Buchanan acolytes demonstrate over and over!
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...
