It 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. This 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. When 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.
No. The Iraq War was not necessary for the United States to be safe and secure. Iraq, although a regional problem, was not a threat to the United States.
The Iraq war begin on March 19 2003 when United States troops invaded Iraq. This was called Operation Iraqi Freedom by the United States.

The United States and Great Britain are two nations that are involved in the Iraq war. There are thousands of troops that are still in Iraq and surrounding countries.
No; in fact Mexico vehemently opposed to such War.
He ordered the United States into the War and mis-managed its progress.
They are separate countries. The United States happened to be at war in both.
The Iraq War has nothing to do with the United States Constitution. The war was not declared in defense of the Constitution, to help the Constitution, or to promote any vision of the Constitution. However, there is a debate as to whether the Iraq War is a legal War by the American Definition because there was no formal Declaration of War by Congress, which is required by the Constitution and subsequent Laws of the United States.
The United States had previously supplied Iraq with supplies during the Iran-Iraq War, including missiles, tanks, airplanes, etc. These supplies were put to use again in the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991, but the United States was opposed to Iraq in that war and did not supply Iraq additionally for its invasion of Kuwait.
WW2 was the last declared war fought by the US.

The first war with Iraq started in 1990. This war, also known as Operation Desert Storm, the Persian Gulf War, First Gulf War, Gulf War I, or the First Iraq War, started when Iraq invaded Kuwait.
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.
This question is asked confusingly. If it refers to the Second Gulf War by American Nomenclature, i.e. the Iraq War of 2003-2011, the United States led the Multinational Force against Iraq. The Multinational Force consisted of the United States, United Kingdom, Poland, Australia, South Korea, and numerous other countries. If it refers to the Second Gulf War by Arab Nomenclature, i.e. the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991, Iraq invaded Kuwait and was then repelled by a United Nations coalition led by the United States, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, and Pakistan.
