What did the war on Iraq by USA achieve ??

War on Iraq by USA stating Iraq had nuclear / biological arsenal has killed / injured / shattered thousands of life's (including thousands of US Soldiers). Finally USA did not find any arsenal.

Do majority world leaders really want peace?? Or Do They want to protect their own business interests??

Are majority world leaders using common citizens to promote their own selfish interests??

If a democratically elected country (USA) can destroy thousands of human life's by waging a war for false reasons what can other countries do??

  • Mar 31 2013: The war achieved its primary goal:

    Many billions of dollars were taken from taxpayers and delivered to USA corporations.

    I strongly suspect that a secondary goal was to establish a USA military base in Iraq, and I suspect that goal will not endure for more than another year or two.

    "Are majority world leaders using common citizens to promote their own selfish interests??" Yes, of course. Most world leaders are just as selfish as most people.
    • Apr 1 2013: Very truly said.

      It is difficult to agree with - "Most world leaders are just as selfish as most people." I am not sure most people are so selfish as our leaders; Leaders must be at least 10 times more selfish than his supporters.
