The American invasion of Iraq was morally and humanely wrong. During the invasion of Iraq in 2003, American government went far beyond humanity when they gave spurious and idealistic reasons for invading Iraq. Over 1 million Iraqi citizens were killed and the country lived under terror for over 5 years due to the American actions.
In 1991 George Bush Sr., attempted to invade Iraq, however, this mission ended before any major action was taken. George Bush Sr.’s advisers, one of them being Dick Cheny choose not to invade Iraq because of the fear that such an invasion could turn into a “quagmire”.
In spite of that, when George W. Bush, the son of George Bush Sr., began his journey to possibly complete what his father wanted to accomplish 10 years ago, the invasion of Iraq. Bush benevolently argued that “democracy in the Middle East must occur,” and the best way he choose was by attacking Iraq.
According to globalpolicy.org, “Before the war, Bush was repeatedly told there was no definitive evidence that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. He knew Iraq was not a nuclear threat. He knew there was no Iraq connection to 9/11. Iraq posed no imminent danger to the United States. There was no case for a pre-emptive war.”
“George W. Bush knew there was no solid prove that Iraq was planting weapons of mass destruction. There were no nuclear weapons in Iraq, not enough technology was developed in Iraq to target long range enemies; America was definitely not being aimed at. Nothing was being planned from the Iraqi side.” (globalpolicy.org)
About the WMD excuse, George W. Bush lied that the Iraqi were a threat to its neighboring countries [Kuwait and Iran] and to the world peace due to the believe that weapon of mass destruction were being developed in Iraq which were of use of short and long range targets.
According to Collateral Language: an Interview with Noam Chomsky, "There is no country where Iraq is regarded as a threat to their security. Kuwait and Iran, which were both invaded by Iraq, don’t regard Iraq as a threat to their security. Iraq is the weakest country in the region...."
The Countries in need for the most protection would be Iraq`s neighbours, but none of them asked America for protection, they were safe so why did George W. Bush want to enter Iraq? (Noam Chomsky)
According to msnbc.msn.com. A poll says "a majority of Americans believe President Bush either lied or deliberately exaggerated evidence that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction in order to justify war."
This poll showed that the majority of America believes that George W. Bush over exaggerated the evidence about the Weapons of mass destruction to find a way to invade Iraq.
It was later proved in 2003; 2 years after the invasion that there were no nuclear weapons or WMD in Iraq. So the reason for entering Iraq through the WMD excuse was a total bull crap.
The world knows, Saddam Hussein was dictatorial, he was evil to his own civilians and this...
