Do you think President Bush should have ordered the invasion of Iraq? Why or why not?

Standard

My answer to Do you think President Bush should have ordered the invasion of Iraq? Why or why not?

Answer by Ken Larson:

No.

The US invaded Iraq fed based on false, intentionally staged intelligence, fronted by agencies and industries bent on economic gain.

Here is an example of how the lobbying and behind the scenes string pulling worked:

CorpWatch : US: Lockheed Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

The US set about war fighting and nation building programs that seek to displace a culture that had evolved through conflict and war lords for hundreds of years and is tied to the absolute requirement that religious practices be part and parcel of government, a principle the US has rejected as unworkable since our Constitution was written.

The invasion of Iraq dramatically escalated a series of cause and effect events in the Middle East that still haunt us today and, much like Vietnam and Korea, illustrate that: Military Victory is Dead.

Applying “Cause and Effect” to US Military Incursions

We must learn from these experiences or suffer the continuing risk of modern warfare that could decimate large portions of the world.
