Even if Iraq was in violation of a UN resolution, the U.S. military does not exist to enforce UN mandates
The U.S. military it exists to defend the United States its territorial integrity, national sovereignty and the population and liberties that underlie the American way of life; so whether Iraq was in violation of Resolution 1441 is irrelevant
The real question is whether Iraq represented a direct and imminent threat to the United States that could not otherwise be deterred. If that was the case, then preemptive self-defense, like Israel’s military action against Egypt, Syria, Jordan, and Iraq in the 1967 Six Day War, would have been warranted. And if Iraq was not a threat, especially in terms of aiding and abetting Al Qaeda, then the United States fought a needless war against a phantom menace.
The war against Iraq was the wrong war because the enemy at the gates was, and continues to be, Al Qaeda (Now ISIS), ironically President Bush indicted himself when he addressed the United Nations General Assembly in September 2003: “No government should ignore the threat of terror, because to look the other way gives terrorists the chance to regroup and recruit and prepare.” that is exactly what the United States did, to make matters even worse, the American taxpayer is stuck with the bill for the war and postwar reconstruction..
Why it now being said
George W. Bush and Dick Cheney didn’t just send us the wrong gear, they sent us to the wrong country
It was still objectively a war of choice; it was not a war that needed to be started at the time, our interests were less than vital and we had alternatives.
