  •  What nation? (none)
    Iraq is a conglomeration of different ethnic groups.  When the Ottoman Empire fell after World War I, the British cobbled together this "nation" and promptly got whomped badly.  The British withdrew and there have been continual messes since.  

    GWB decided a long time ago that he was going to enter this quagmire for no reason that has been disclosed.

    It's all about oil now.

    OIL.

    Which has nothing to do with being a " nation".
