    Invading Iraq was "worth it." We didn't have a right to invade. That is the end of our discussion. We don't get to sit over here and debate whether it was "worth it" (to us) to destroy another country and send their society into civil war. This stopped being about us a long time ago.

      and killed and wounded 2 or 3 million, give or take. Iraq had a huge reserve of top quality oil but UN sanctions kept Iraq from properly putting that oil into the proper channels (and killed hundreds of thousands of people, mainly children, it is reported). Not that it was about oil. The U.S. is the favored country of God and it decides who gets what. I would imagine there is a much better chance of mushroom clouds coming to fruition post-Iraq invasion than before. Dick wants to increase our military and move a large part of it to Iraq, permanently, it appears. Dick and George and Condi and their Christian Right devotees play fast and loose with people's lives.
