Invasion of Iraq 10 years later: Good move or mistake

10 years ago today the US invaded Iraq to overthrow the regime of Saddam Hussein. The after-effects of that decision are still being felt to this day, and obviously will continue to play out in the years and decades to come. At this milestone, however, knowing everything that you know now, should we have gone in, or not?

Regrets and hypotheticals aren't really the goal here. We could go on and on (and have, many times) about how the post-invasion situation was handled, etc. ad infinitum. You should vote simply on the facts as they have actually occurred over the last 10 years.

Poll forthcoming. Note that it will be a public poll.

What a ****ing pussy you are...
And he does this with everyone. Comes in lobbing insults and then when a poster fights back he attempts to play the victim card.

Also, bear in mind this dipshit didn't even join the military until after 40 and only did so because he couldn't hold down a regular job.

Of course we are voting with hindsight, if your not, you aren't paying attention.

Chiefforlife is correct. I very specifically said that people should be voting based on what we know NOW. Hell, it's implicit in the name of the thread.

That doesn't mean, of course, that you can't say "I thought it was a bad f'n idea then too", but that's not what the poll is asking.

Second, even if we did get to keep those oil fields, gas would STILL not be $1.00 per gallon. To think that it would be shows a fundamental lack of understanding of how the worldwide oil market works.

And I note that the oil market is absolutely capitalistic, so the price we pay is (under the theory of capitalism) the "right" price (excluding taxes that we pay etc.).
