Yes, this US-Iraq war overthrew a brutal dictator. One can only agree with this.

But the situation in Iraq is a lot worse now than it was before this war. Under Saddam Hussein, Iraq was kept at peace (under pressure of the secret police, army, etc....), religious were kept under control, there was no Al Qaeda presence in the country (who would set up a terrorist clandestine movement in a country where the government is spying on everyone?). Now, the country is in a cvivil war, the religious are in full power, the Shiites are at a permanent war with the Sunnites, etc....

This war has led to nothing good in Iraq, to a reinforcement of terrorism, to a huge cost for the US to the single profit of the military-industrial complex, to thousands of US victims, and tens of thousands (or hundreds of thousands) or Iraqi victims.

Brandon: "The fact that he didn't properly prepare for the aftermath and naively believed that a nation that has never been a democracy since the dawn of civilization could be turned into one overnight does not make his intentions bad."
Of course it does. It brings light onto the real motivations of this war: siphon off present and future US taxpayers money into the pockets of the friends of people in power. Neither Bush nor his administration ever care from bringing peace or democracy to Iraqis.

Marseil.
