    only the 'pretext' was wrong, but for that you can blame the dysfunctional UN...iraq had in fact been trying for wmd's for 30 years, had osirak blown up in 1981, was later hiring out of work russian nuke scientists, was subverting food for oil towards weapons programs, was in violation of over 17 UN resoultions, was killing his own people with wmd's (chemical weapons in halabja)..was ethnically cleansing...and the PROOF that america was not in it for oil is NOW being seen in who is winning the iraqi oil contracts...most are NOT american...iraq is far better off today than they were..in the post 9/11 environment, iraq was moral & just and so too is iran. Obama himself said some wars are moral and striving for peace sometimes means force must be used. I love that obama is basically following the bush doctrine to a T. How amusing is that....ahh sweet justice...bush was a great man..courageous, visionary.
