Iraq war worth costs
Steamboat Springs The war in Iraq, which has cost 4100 American lives, has brought freedom to the Iraqi people and has helped bring a little more freedom to the Middle East, in general. That is hardly "no good reason." All our past wars cost many more lives, all under Democrat presidents. In WW2 and Vietnam, we bombed civilians indiscriminately in order to defeat the enemy. In Iraq, we are using smart bombs to specifically target the enemy (I don't know the ratio of smart bombs to standard munitions). Our soldiers also have body armor that actually deflects bullets along with armored vehicles that have saved many lives, something we have never really had in war before. This is not the worst president in history.
