Now when saddam is not in control of Iraq, you say it was supid and pointless to invade it. If the US would attack Afghanistan or Pakistan you would go "ohhh gawd why did they do that they fucked up their economy and that was so pointless now they're stuck in a shithole instead of invading a real threat like Iraq with all it's missiles and scuds fucking up the whole middle east" and who knows what they could have achieved until now if saddam was still in control.
No I wouldn't. Pakistan and Afghanistan was where the militants were being trained and where it was all at, not Iraq. Iraq would've been a threat only to Kuwait/Saudi/Israel/Iran all of which could've easily dealt with Iraq on it's own after sanctions placed on them. There was no world threat from Iraq, only Israeli propoganda making you think that. Even then, Israel would've destroyed Iraq five times over before it even broke a sweat. There was no threat with Iraq.
Because of Iraq, the militants on Central Asia were allowed to get a foothold again. Now they've amassed so much pressure that Pakistan is starting to collapse. You know why he declared a state of emergency, to deal with the militants. It's that bad. Face it, the militants would be a shadow of what they are today if we had just focused on them and them only and left Iraq alone.
The only reason Iraq was ever invaded was:
- Money (Not much profit made out of fighting Taliban, a killing is being made in Iraq however for the defence contractors, at the expense of the US Taxpayer)
- Finish off some family grudge
- Probably a mix of everything
Don't give me that liberation bullshit. The US supports many dictators and we all know that, they couldn't give a fuck about democracy. Most Americans don't even realise that this world of fear and constant fighting is exactly what the Defence Contractors and PMC's want (not trying to sound like MGS4, but that's what it's like) because that's what's making them massive profits. This WoT won't be over for a long time. If ever.
