"Iran! Iraq! Who cares!" - Saddam Hussein, South Park.

The looted, chaotic remnants of what was the cradle of civilization, whose priceless historical treasure we failed to protect while protecting the oil ministry with over 200 men. Also known as Texas Junior and the Oil pit. Nobody could doubt that we would crush the hell out of their third-world army, but what for? Where are the weapons of mass destruction?
Elliot: Hey, Jeff, did you hear about Iraq?

Jeff: I heard from the media that we liberated those benevolent peeps who we had always cared for from their evil, Democrat liberal pink-assed commie Heusein, who had WMD pointed right at the U.S., ready to launch on his... 120 mile range... missiles... shut up.

Nation ran by an American-trained dictator. Saddam was useful for a while, but now he's becoming a thorn in Bush's side, so it's time to kill him in the name of a "war on terror"

Believe it or not Americans, but it's also one of the cradles of civilisation.
