    Mr Bush claimed that Iraq had WMDs so he posed a threat to us. Mr Bush also claimed that Al Quaeda was in Iraq. Both ended up being false. Bush blamed the intelligence!

    Your better off looking at the web pages people have listed but there will be one thing thats not on their and thats OIL, The gulf war in the 90′s and the fighting still going on now is based around OIL, Not 911 as their is no actual proof that Iraqi citizens or militia were actually responsible. Technically it was never actually a war and still isnt, the coalition forces i.e. UK, USA like to call it peace keeping however for a peace keeping mission the death toll on both sides is extremely high. Right now I think the biggest thing happening is that UK are pulling out of Iraq and handing control to Iraqi authority and also the swearing in of Barac Obama will make a huge difference as Im led to beleive hes against the conflict.

    The first link below is to the text of the Iraq Liberationb Act of 1998, where the U.S., Congress asserted our policy of seeing the overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s regime. The second link below is to the text of the Congressional Authorization for Offensive Military Operations. Begin reading after the first “whereas” and you will find the reasons for our carrying out that operation.The third link is to the web site of the Multi-National Forces in Iraq. It will show you what progress is being made. If you click on the link at the top right hand side, you can even read a four-page weekly newspaper in English.

    Wikipedia has a fairly comprehensive page on the subject. Peruse it at your will. [external link]

    You will find every reason for going to war in Iraq listed in the “Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq”This resolution was approved by both houses of congress and signed by the President.
