Was it wrong that we went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Bush thought it necessary that we go... Should we have or did he just send us over there to try to avenge his father? should we have gone over there in the first place?

  • no.. he had his reasons but im strongly against wars and innocent people dying. weather they are afghanis, iraqis or american troops. just because some bad people, everybody else has to suffer. so im totally against wars. there are other ways to settle issues. thats what i used to settle conflicts among my 1st grade students. too bad its harder to make adults understand that !!

  • To avenge his Father? LOL.
    We went there for OIL. The Government knows that Oil is so necessary and the supply is running low.....do you really think Bush had to "avenge" his Father? WOw....It was for OIL!•

    A definition of AVENGE: S: (v) revenge, avenge, retaliate (take revenge for a perceived wrong) "He wants to avenge the murder of his brother
    So....how does that make any sense?

  • We did not go there for oil.. We should have never went into Iraq, but Afghan., hell yea...and we will be there for a while... there are alot of terrorist groups and evil people over there... they need to be stopped before more innocent people and countries are attacked... i think more countries around the world need to pitch in more... it's only a matter a time before they do a big attack again, and it can happen anywhere... if we pull out of there now, it will only give those 'bad guys' time to re-group, grow in numbers, and plan more terrible attacks...

    i wish people would wake up!! those type of people are not about to sit down, hold everyones hand, and 'work out their problems'... they seek evil, blood, destruction...etc... so i say, lets give to them!!

  • If you really think we went to the Middle East ...Iraq,Afghanistan....to get rid of the bad guys, you are just so naive. It WAS for OIL. If you don't get that, I feel sorry for you.
    It was the OIL,people. And it always will be. The troops will STAY there and just to make us happy,they will bring home a few thousand. But a bunch will stay....the USA needs control of Oil-rich countries.Get used to it. They are there for OIL.

  • Yes we should have though not for as long as we've been there. However I don't think he cared about what happened it was to finish what daddy started.
