Maybe...but i think it was more out of fear in having another 9/11 incident. Please take note that most Americans are not happy about the war in Iraq and the decision of Pres. Bush to go to war isnt a popular decision among American people. The war in Iraq is more a response to fear of terrorism.

I think the US wants to take control of the oil in Iraq and that is why they are still present there. I don't think they want to rule the country necessarily as long as they can still get to the oil.

i feel sorry for the troops..it's a plan i think that has gone totally wrong and out of control..they thought they would be out of there within six months from the demise of saddam hussein..but the plans have gone bad..some say oil some say political clout..keep fanatic ismam out of the region..no mone really knows..the only thing we do know is that this war is sucking the u.s econimy dry and will end up destabalising not only the middle east but also the u.s as public opinion denounces outright this war..i pray for a miracle..no use pointing the finger now anymore..too much damage has been done..it is a time for seeking out solutions.

My view point is that US tries to control Iraq. Maybe US is eager to obtain some benefits from Iraq's huge amount of oil. Maybe the Bush government wants prevent terrorists from making trouble. Well, it is not impossible that US really wants to rule Iraq.
