Horrible mistake. Every supposed reason for going to war was either proven false or overblown. It was all about regime change and getting our hands on Iraqi oil.

The execution of the war was criminally incompetent. We used three times as many troops in the first Gulf War and didn't plan to occupy a hostile country afterwards. The decisions were fueled by yes men afraid of telling Rumsfeld the plan was poised to fail.

We pulled out of Afghanistan putting the security of that country at grave risk which allowed Bin Laden to escape. It shouldn't have taken 13 years to get out of Afghanistan.

The war is also one of the major contributors to the deficit. If you voted for the Iraq war and continued tax cuts for the 1%, you should have zero room to talk about deficits.
