  • I believe it's none of those reasons. I believe the real reason is priviledged information considered "top secret" at the highest level, and we are to follow blindly into a world of confusion because that took us right out of the depression we were in prior to military action. War is the best medicine for a faultering economy.

  • It was neither. The war was started because Iraq started to accept euros for payment which would have led others to do so and that would have caused the collapse of the U.S. economy.
    • mushroom
      This was reported at the time. Saddam bragged about his newfound independence. It was also payback for the attempted assassination of Poppy Bush in Kuwait.
  • For an oil pipe line across Iraq. I read this a short time ago. Some groups didn't want the pipe line.
