President Bush insisted that Iraq had WMDs. That was a lie. They
didn't it was 100% the US's fault. Iraq did not provoke any sort of

The reasons for going to war in Iraq could be argued endlessly, and
many people still feel do not that the United States should have
gone to war in the first place. The original reason was because
