An unjustified war with changing motives. It was brought up by years of lies.
Idiot: Why do you disagree with the Iraq War?
Smart man: Because there was no reason for it and no weapons of mass destruction?
Idiot: So you'd still rather have Saddam in power?
Smart man: No, but it wasn't work the deaths of Americans and civilians, and it we could used the money for better.
Idiot: well....uh...its people like Saddam bin laden that can't enjoy hannukagh....uhhh....fuck you!
Crusades: Expansion Pack.
The Iraq War's a nice throwback to 1000 years ago. Except with guns.
a bad thing.
They had no WMD and that should've been the end of it.
Iraq FINALLY let UN weapon inspectors in to look around. They found nothing, but war was declaired anyway.
It's true, probably a good 70% of the British people were against the war from the very start. Not because we are against war with our enemies, or the enemies of our friends, but because Iraq were really no threat. Why couldn't the CIA/MI6 just assasinate Saddam if they felt that strongly about him?
In the aftermath of 9/11, Britain was proud to hear Tony Blair giving his shoulder-to-shoulder speach, we were proud to go to Afghanistan to fight the Talliban and help try to find Bin Laden. We've suffered terrorism for many years (all my life), and know what it means, and will steadfastly back our Governments policy of ALWAYS standing up to terrorism even if it does make us a target again.
Terrorits are cowards, they don't wear uniforms or fight under a flag. They sneak around, in the dark planting bombs, before sneaking away again like rats. The men who fought the US/UK invasion were not terrorists or cowards, they were scared young men trying to defend their country.
The Iraq war was a mistake, if we truely are commited to fighting the GOOD fight, then we must keep ourselves focused on the real enemies.
- 9/11 occurs. United States in disarray-more...
Americans: "This is so horrible, who could have done such a thing! Somebody figure out who did it!"
Bush: "It was TERRORISTS!"
Americans: -wiping manly tears from eyes- "...Terrorists?"
Bush: "That's right! Terrorists! Al-Qaeda to be exact. They're in Afghanistan."
Americans: "Well, what are we waiting for? Let's go get them!"
Bush: "We won't fight terrorism in Afghanistan alone, we'll fight them all over the world!"
Americans: "FUCK YEAR!" -Presidential ratings skyrocket-
Bush & Cheney: -snicker- Fucking morons.
Britain: "America, we'd love to company you in your crusade against terrorists in Afghanistan."
Britians: "Well, all right, I suppose that sounds like a good idea. I do dislike terrorists."
Bush & Cheney: -whispering to each other- "Now's our chance..." -approaches Britain with confidence- "So, Tony, in our crusade against terrorism, it's come to our attention that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction: AKA WMDs.
Blair: "Really? What are your sources?"
Blair: "Well, I suppose that makes sense."
Bush: "So can we invade?"
Blair: "Don't you think we should check it out first, you know, just to make sure?"
Cheney: "But we KNOW they have WMDs, can't we just invade, pleeaaaaaseeee?"
Blair: "That doesnt seem very logical to me."
-Spock steps in- Spock: Not logical indeed.
Cheney: "FINE. Send the UN in and see what we can find."
-UN knocks on Iraq's door- "Hi! Hi! Hi!"
Hussein: -just wa...
Another way of saying 'mistake.'
Canceling Arrested Development was a huge Iraq War.
Gaming. When a fighting game becomes such a mess that you can't do anything except fire randomly and hope for the best.
Named for to the complete mess that British and American forces made when they invaded Iraq in 2003.
I was playing Wii Play tanks when three red tanks cornered me we all opened fire and it turned into an Iraq war.
Started on March 20, 2003 when a coalition invaded believing Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. This turned out to be false and was used to scare everyone for oil making Bush and his corporate buddies richer. Now, coalition forces (what's left of them) continue to deal with an insurgency that is still hiding in Iraq.

The Iraq War was started on March 20, 2003.
