Reader comment on item: What If the United States Had Not Invaded Iraq

Submitted by Alexandra (United States), Apr 10, 2007 at 18:25

As you all know, we started this war officially in march 2003.... this is just like vietnam... we thought that the north vietnamese had ruined a US army base and so we attacked them, and we thought Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, we attacked them. whats the truth? its the oil, Bush wants to finish what his father started. Doesnt N. Korea have weapons of mass destruction?....wow... dont we pay attention...

We should end this war.

the congress is about to pull funding from the war and pull out troops on sept. 2008, and Bush plans on veto-ing this bill.

There is another bill that states that troops will be sent out of iraq, on sept 2008, but this same bill states that 60,000 troops will stay in iraq for "diplomatic protection, counter-terrorism, and training of Iraqi forces" It also gives $125 billion to fund this. On top of that.... there is $145 billion put aside for war in 2008, and $50 billion in 2009! -Pelosi's House bill, democrat,
Nancy Pelosi

How can congress try to convince us that they are ending the war.... i do not think they are. This is another bill similar to the one they will try to pass in March 2008.

Are U.S. troops necessary to stop the violence? It isnt the place o the Bush administration to decide the future of Iraq.

May i remind you, September 11th, involved people from Saudi Arabia, Not Iraq.

We should be against the war, Iraqis dont want us there. They are self-determined, let us leave.
