The Iraq War is over and we won.
We were given many reasons for the Iraq War. We were told the war was to block use of weapons of mass destruction, but there were no WMDs. We were told the war was about terrorism, but the Al Qaida terrorists were not from Iraq and there were no Al Qaida in Iraq. We were told the war was about regime change. We did change the regime and attempt nation building, but it was framed as patriotic altruism and we were not told why that particular nation was targeted for export of our democracy.
The Iraq War was about oil and that’s why it’s now over.
