Did the US go into Iraq for alleged WMDs or was it a cover up for oil?

The official reason for the invasion of Iraq was alleged weapons of mass destruction (nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons); after all, he did use chemical weapons on the kurds. However, once the invasion happened, the Bush administration found no weapons of mass destruction. This has led to many democrats to claim that the US invaded Iraq as a result of the country selling oil in euros rather than dollars.

Empire, my man. The US invaded that part of the world for the same reason Rome invaded where it did--empire.

My guess: the states of Iraq, Afghanistan, Britain, Sicily, Kosovo, Atlantis and Mu will prove to be the swing states in this upcoming election. :mrgreen:

I don't know about Atlantis. I heard they're having some difficulties down there with y'know, being stuck at the bottom of the ocean and all. :lamo

Everything is a conspiracy. Always. :mrgreen:

No, no, no. When the government is involved, it CANNOT POSSIBLY be a conspiracy. Our illustrious government officials never deceive, never plan, never conspire. They are beneficent, and concerned ONLY with the health and welfare of citizens. :lamo

No, no, no you've got it all wrong. Everything is a scam. There's no jobs; there's no country; everything is fake. I bet all you CT people are government plants distracting people from the real conspiracy--- covering up why it's taken the Cubs so many years to make it back to the World Series.
