    Nov 28 2012: Why did America(*I wouldn't say it was America per se, a group of individuals who ruled America started this war*) invade Iraq in 2003?
    They needed Oil. Global dominance. Iraq is a strategic point to control that region.

    Was the Iraqi war legitimate?
    Hell No. Monsters who did acts of terrorism are 100% CIA made. (I hope I'm not breaching terms/conditions of TED). Whilst people who died in Iraq war had nothing to do with whole mess and neither generations who will live a miserable life thanks to this war....

    Was the decision to invade Iraq right?
    For those individuals it worked out quite right in the end. They are free breathing same air you and I.

    PS: For me people who defend this war are no different than terrorists scum of human race. (leave apart sides / religion just read it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_Iraq_War; and if you still support war something is really wrong with you)
