The Iraq War, was it a war on terror looking for weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or an excuse from the most powerful country in the world to secure Iraq’s much needed oil supplies for decades to come?
well if it’s not about oil how come when us army tryed to go public about what they seen in iraq they suddenly turned up in there car in the wood dead because they had “commited suiside”?
Bush wanted this war and then Blair followed.

Dude. You can’t even spell. If you want people to take you seriously, take yourself seriously. This is a debate, not a grammar-help-hotline.
well all I see is everyone picking a side. American is either fighting terror or focusing on the oil. Why cant it be both?
We have all experienced the heavy increases in oil Im sure. I think it would do some good for more oil to go into circulation.If it is a conspiracy, then so be it. If it changes the increasing oil prices, then awesome.
If they really are going for a war on terror, then cool. I’ve seen on the news of what has happened in the United States and I almost certain that similar things are happening in Iraq to its own people(prolly not on a very huge scale like 9/11 though). If the troops stationed there help both sides of the coin, then keep up the good work.
And now im getting sidetracked from my homework. Oopsie
Debi, Y would u say that US trying to have both-war against terror n Focusing on Oil?
What I felt was that US wanted to increase their weapon supplies to every country which fight terror..in that case, y would it fight terror? or, simply I would like to ask, Y would US try to destroy their own business? Will anybody cut the branch on the tree where they sit?
And talkin about oil, I think, US is in Iraq definitly for Oil..Y would Britian join the war with US? its for the same cause..Oil…Oil if posessed, could make you rich and help you to dominate the whole world..and well ! Everybody knows US…
- War for Oil??
If the war in Iraq was really about oil, we’d be paying 85 cents a gallon for gasoline. So far, the USA has gotten exactly ZERO barrels of oil from Iraq. All oil contracts in Iraq have been bought by European and Asian oil companies.
Right.. so you want to destroy another country’s resources to lower oil prices in ur own country? Really? HOW CAN U EVEN THINK THAT WAY? Would it be okay if another country invades YOUR country and steals their resources to the point where you’re left with nothing? Yeah thats justice!
Why did the US invade Iraq? Do u even know? They had reports that Iraq possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction. They had no right to invade in the first place. Didnt America itself start the nuclear era? Do u even know ur history? -,- Hiroshima and Nagasaki CHANGED the world. The US invaded, hanged THEIR leader trying to free the country of dictatorship. What a display of human rights.. then why did the iraqi ppl hate it? Around 103,013 – 112,571 civilians died. CIVILIANS! That word has a meaning! And according to wikileaks, an addition of 15,000 civilians deaths was there. You dont kill civilians in a war, dont u know?
The war was unjustified. According to a January 2007 BBC World Service polls, 73% of the global population disapproved of U.S. handling of the Iraq War.

America found no evidences of the presence of weapons of mass destruction. So many lives lost because of a false report. Bush was a great man indeed -.-
Iraqs oil resources were too exploited, oil tanks being set on fire, schools and houses bombed and what not. They did not fight terror, they multiplied it! This is the reason why hatred for america will never end. Oil was taken to america, there can not be another explanation.
We have been taken to the cleaners many times — The Great Depression — Threat of communism — war after war — Savings and Loan Crisis $500 billion — Oil embargo — our new financial crisis –> Trillions
War in Iraq — second largest oil field — we use 25% of the worlds oil — we truck food and goods on average 1500 miles — we drive alone is our vehicles — we just don’t want to look too deep !
The U.S. taxpayer is getting raped !
- War on Terror & 9/11
George W. Bush was behind 9/11 because that was his way to the oil in Iraq and there was no weapons of mass destruction. It’s just a big game & fraud!.

Hey, buddy. You might want to be careful what you post. The people behind the great conspiracies might think you’re getting too close to the truth – and want to silence you.
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. In the meantime, be sure to keep an eye out for the black helicopters and tighten up the chinstrap on your tinfoil helmet.
- waste of time
you guys arent going to get answers like this. and getting mad over this isnt going to do anything either. its ok to have conspiracys and be surious. but dont go overboard with it
800 thousand dead overboard! wheres your humanity if that doesnt make you angry
- The real reason
When Saddam attacked Kuwait, Saudi Arabia didn’t want to be next, but couldn’t be seen as fighting Muslims. Bush Sr. couldn’t convince Americans why we should sacrifice our family members for Saudis, so along comes Jr. With a great reason to go to war, 9/11. Conviently helped by a lot of Saudi nationals. Now Saddam no longer threatens Saudi Arabia and their hands are clean.
- im just saying
If people have a problem with a war for oil then you need to cut back on the use of oil.
the war on oil would have no grounds if we werent so dependent on it.
im not saying its right to go to war for something so selfish.
personally i think starting a war is wrong no matter what.
and i also think you cant say that a nation is harboring radicals if it has psychos in it. were in the US and we still have people with crazy radical ideology directed at other people and countries. why did we help the taliban against russia.
the weapons they are fighting with are what we gave them to fight the russians with and now that we want something from them that they dont want to give us they are the bad guys.
i think it is a bunch of self righteous bullshit
