Did America invade Iraq, or was it a necessary attack

From my point of view I think that America has no right over Iraq. No matter what Iraq does, America cant just attack the country and tell who and who should rule the country. It was an invasion and Iraq should attack back and defend itself. Thousands of innocent people have died in Iraq, and still they talk about the soldiers dying at the war zone, never mention about innocent people dying. And as for the people who try to defend the country, they are labeled as terrorists. Why is this happening? Why does everyone knowing this staying silent and simply supporting America. What do you think about this invasion? Are you happy about Bush's decision?

Attack back with what? You speak of the innocent citizens of Iraq but lump them all together into one pile. What about those who support what has happened in their country and support THEIR new government? They're not attacking anyone, they're being attacked by terrorists disguised as rebels. How does attacking the Iraqi soldiers and police force help Iraq?

im sorry if i didnt make myself clear. I was talking about the initial of the war. About how they made the decision of the war without thinking twice, killing thousands of innocent people. And in the end, they never found any weapons of mass destructions (which they gave the gurantee that iraq had). And thanks to the invasion, now America owns the oil industries of iraq. Come to think of it, dont you think it was all planned. It might be your country, but remember that they used YOUR money for the war USELESSLY. Tell Bush to bomb china. Cause they have weapons of mass destruction. But im sure America dont have the guts to do that. Cause china is way over America.

I don't agree with you at all. The U.S. wasn't the only country who thought Saddam had WMD which is why the U.S. wasn't the only country to go into Iraq, or have you forgotten that we're not there by ourselves? It certainly was not something that was done "without thinking twice". Has it crossed your mind that, if Saddam hadn't been such a lunatic in the first place and hadn't behaved the way that he did, none of this would have happened? He makes so many threats against other nations that the UN (not the United States) sends in inspection teams to check for WMD. While the inspectors were in Iraq he played with them...you can't go here...you can't talk to this person...acting so much like he had something to hide that I still suspect that he had WMD and he managed to get them into Syria. I'm glad you think the U.S. owns the oil industry in Iraq but you really should do a little research before making statements like that because you're very mistaken. And, as far as China goes, why would the U.S. want to bomb China? The Chinese aren't making the threats Saddam made.

Originally we followed the first strike theory. They have weapons of mass destruction, let's wipe them out before they can use them. In retrospect, oops, there were no such weapons ... it may very well be labeled an invasion. Who cares, lol! It was a hasty and stupid decision. However, it's done and we have to live the outcome. The majority of the Iraquis who are happy that the Saddam regime is gone, happy about the American 'intervention'. Those who now attack through roadside bombs and such are those select few who have profited under the old regime and now lost everything. And there are those religious fanatics who see easy targets. And there is Iran... They are labeled terrorists because that's what they are. They use sneaky attacks not combat tactics. Those are not even goverment ordered attacks. Iraq has its own government. The government doesn't sanction the attacks. Now you could try and label it a civil war except that it doesn't quite fit the definition for that either as the attacks are aimed at Americans and their supporters. They also get outside funding. Therefore, the label terrorist fits best. So, no there is not a defending of a country. If they wouldn't do those sneaky attacks, the Americans would probably be on the way out already. The country would be left to the Iraquis, lol. They don't defend their country but the lifestyle they had, the ideas and religious fanatism. And the American enemies such as Iran are pouring fuel into the fire. Little these people now that Iran is ready to invade Iraq as soon as the American troops are out, lol.
