\n Answer \n.
\nIt depends, because if John Kerry became President, he would take the soldiers out of Iraq that means the Iraqis would come over here and they would …finish the war in the U.S.\n.
\n No \n.
\nThis war is unlike any foreign war we've fought, ever, in that we're fighting people who don't have their own army. Saddam Hussein made a law that required every able-bodied male to own his own AK-47. He then made another law requiring the Iraqi government to buy AK-47s and give them to every able-bodied Iraqi. Couple those two laws with the total lack of security forces the US Army put on Iraq's ammo facilities after the invasion, and you can see there are a lot of really mad people running around that country and they're all armed to the teeth.\n.
\nWhen President Bush refers to "fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here," he's referring to terrorists, not Iraqi soldiers. The Iraqi Army under Saddam Hussein was a regional force. It could attack any of the countries around it, and it was trying to figure out how to attack Israel. It had plenty of trucks, tanks and armored personnel carriers. It didn't have any cargo planes, though, especially not ones that could fly halfway around the world loaded with combat-equipped soldiers. If Iraq wanted to fight us "over here," they'd have to first start an army and then buy plane tickets...and believe me when I tell you no airline in the world will let someone check a missile as luggage.

because of the fact that if the Middle East is in a war then the world's oil and gas supply is cut. so in order to keep the flow of oil going, we decided to end it. but it's n…ot working They wanted to oust Hussein and start a new government, but when he was ousted there were too many Hussein loyalists and so their new government plan did not work.

The question is a moot point considering that the United States has now left Iraq, but the bottom line was that there was nothing further for the American troops to do in Iraq… that they could have accomplished short of maintaining an indefinite occupation of the region. (MORE)
Iraq did not go to war with the US. Iraq did invade Kuwait in 1991, and there was a UN response of which the US was the leading contributor. Then the US went back to Iraq agai…n, in 2002, because of concern about noncompliance with UN security council resolutions and weapons inspections. Iraq never declared war on the US, although it is possible to argue that their actions were provocative. (MORE)
Declared War Issue The war in Iraq was never a declared conflict. It was authorized by the president and the Congress, according to the AUMF requirement of the War P…owers Act, but never was an official declaration. Reasons for AUMF on Iraq The primary reason given by the administration of George W. Bush was that Saddam Hussein, the leader of Iraq, was engaged in the production or acquisition of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). These are nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons (examples are the anthrax letter attacks in the US and the Sarin gas attacks in Tokyo--neither of which had any connection to Iraq). It was suggested that Hussein might provide these weapons to terrorists to attack the US. He had already used chemical weapons sold to him by the US against Iran, and also against Iraqi Kurds. Before the war UN inspectors announced they had found no evidence of WMDs, despite unfettered access. After the war was under way, additional investigation concluded Saddam did not have WMDs. The war continued, however, because the occupation forces of the US were attacked by Iraqi guerrillas, many ironically supported by Iran, Iraq's enemy in the Iran-Iraq war (1980-1988). The US supported a new democratic government within Iraq, which was opposed by various Islamic groups that traditionally held power in the country. Other factions sought to aggrandize their share of the power to be had in the new political system. It was suggested early on the conflict was predominantly an attempt by the US to control the flow of oil from Iraq, one of the largest petroleum producers in the Middle East. (MORE)
