Well, 45 months after the "War on Terror" started, we have passed the number killed in the 9/11 attacks. Sadly, the person who marked the milestone was killed on Christmas. This was his second tour of Iraq and he was only 25. And there still is no hard proof that Iraq had anything to do with 9-11. How many more must dies? We are fighting ideology, not an army.

This is such a dangeroius discussion bound to be stepping on some feet. So many people have different oppinions and we might have heard all fo them already, the question is why do you compare 9/11 with Iraq? I thought Bush attacked them because they were w thread for the world with nuclear weapons. Was Bin Laden not the one for 9/11? I am sure they went after him but still cant catch him?

I dont disagree with you, all I am saying is the statement that you have read is an oppinion of some people but not of all. I am so sorry for every life lost in the war and in 9/11 but we have to look at both sides before making any statements.

Maybe I did not explain it propperly and I am sorry if you misunderstood me. What I am saying about an oppinion is that we are not sure if it is beacuase of 9/11 that America invaded Iraq, it could have been because of the threat to safety to the world.
