I cant help but believing our involvement in Iraq had nothing to do with WMD but basically was a way of getting men, airfields and equipment closer to Iran.

That situation isn't over yet, and its possible could really flare up in about a year.

If we end up at war with Iran it will be an interesting situation.......will we even be able to use the airfields or fly over Iraq?

My general feeling is no, this was not worth it.......I did think it was at the time though...but mainly because I wasn't familiar with the sunni vs shia details.....

I wonder though, if you asked 100 shia Iraqis 100 kurds and 100 sunnis whether theyre better off now, what the results would be.....I'd guess the shia and kurds are happy we came in and only the sunni would not be......but I wonder what the numbers would be.
