USA presence in Iraq is creating more terrorists. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/09/24/world/middleeast/24terror.html?ex=1316750400&en=da252be85d1b39fa&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss Americans want out of Iraq. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/09/16/opinion/polls/main855969.shtml The Sept. 11 commission reported yesterday that it has found no "collaborative relationship" between Iraq and al Qaeda, challenging one of the Bush administration's main justifications for the war in Iraq. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A47812-2004Jun16.html USA has thus far spent 2.6 trillion dollars in Iraq. http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200601/s1544884.htm So for those people out there that can't believe the USA government would kill 3000 Americans, how do you justify being in Iraq?

Bush must have thought it is an easy target. I think he wanted the crude oil there.

Iraq is producing less oil now than before the war. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/02/international/middleeast/02ministry.html?ex=1272686400&en=e3a2c066673bec98&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss People will say that he was wrong, but let's not forget that these people know war and know that conventional warfare is obsolete due to guerilla warfare and terrorism. In fact, that's why the CIA came up with these tactics and trained the Afghanis/Mujahadeen.
