There could be several responses to the question.The truth might be far from known.The 911 attacks seem to be the prime motivation to wage war.Osama Bin Laden believed to be involved in the 911 attacks and the founder of terrorist organization Al-Qaeda (Born in Saudi Arabia).It's debatable weather Iraqi terrorist Groups were involved in the attacks or not.It is also believed that United States had interest in removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq.In Dec 2003 Saddam Hussein was Captured near Tikrit and executed in 2006.Several attempts have been made to capture Osama-Bin Laden but none successful yet.

They also attacked Iraq for oil and gold.
