  1. Because according to Bush there are weapons of mass destruction there that we can't find. Note: 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines found caches of leathal gasses in the Al Anbar Province in 2007.
  2. Because according to Bush Saddam is working with Al Qaeda despite the fact that they are sworn enemies and Osama Bin Ladin offered Saudi Arabia to fight against Saddam in the first Gulf War.
  3. Because according to Bush it's at least better with Saddam gone in Iraq since not having order, electricty, running water, utilities in general, an excess death rate of 600,000(compared to the 8,000 kurds he bombed and killed), war between militants and the US Army, death around every block is better since Saddam denied all his citizens these great things. Note: At death rate of 600,000 would mean there would not be anyone living there today.
  4. Because according to Bush we are giving them the great ideals of capitalism and democracy, in fact those ideas are so great that they had to be forced on to the Iraqi people since they're too weak or dumb to do what's best for themselves. Note:opinion.
  5. Because according to Bush its best to have a democracy in Iraq made of 33 councillors all of whom have a different ethnicity, 28 of whom are publically on forgein payrolls, who only help those who voted for them (you want water in your house? well u have to vote for me), who never said no to the American army, who are not puppets of America (lets face it, u spend alot of money on regime change, if its democracy it wont stay brought long since they can vote in a new one, so we go for dictators or aristocrates that stay brought) Note: Made up 'facts' and very poor grammar, punctuation and fluidity. Also 'alot' is actually two words.

The official reason that the president (George Bush) gave was that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, or nuclear weapons, that were potentially harmful to the USA.

The unofficial reason was that America had had enough of Saddam Hussein and wanted him out of government.
