Reflection on the Iraq War

Updated: May 29

I am an angry Candidate for President!

No person in the American government seems to ever be held accountable for their actions.

Elected officials just move on to their next failed political decision.

President, George Bush, JR. United States Commander In Chief.

President Bush ordered members of America's bravest warriors into battle in Iraq.

They were ordered to the nation of Iraq to destroy Iraq's ability to create alleged weapons of mass destruction.

President Bush ordered around sixty nine thousand American soldiers into Iraq.

Four thousand four hundred of those brave warriors died and will never hold a loved one again.

Thirty one thousand were injured. No matter the size of the injury there can be a mental injury that never heals.

Thousands of Iraqi civilians and soldiers died.

The Iraq infrastructure was targeted and decimated.

My Issues!

My main point of anger!

Was it necessary for one American soldier to get a deployment to Iraq soil? America had other viable options to pacify the threat the world was told Iraq, led by Saddam Hussein was.


Israel is the massive superpower in the Middle East. We know because America gives Israel billions in military and foreign aid.

Israel would be in far more danger from a nuclear Iraq than any American interest in the region.

Israel has superior fighters, missiles and a world-famous intelligence organization. The Mossad. Israel had previously bombed Iraqi suspected nuclear sites.

Why would America not reach out and utilize their intelligence and training again.

Did America's President or Generals consider asking Israel to be our proxy? Was it even discussed? I want to know!


The nation of Iran was once mortal enemies of Iraq and Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

Iran would never allow a nuclear Iraq. A nuclear Iraq would have put Iran in great danger.

Did America's military leaders look at Iran?

America has worked with our enemies in the past to achieve a goal.

Was Iran viewed as an option?

Iran and Iraq have been enemies for decades. Such hated enemies chemical weapons were used by both sides.


America has the world's most advanced weapons systems.

An unmatched carrier fleet. Generation 5 jet fighters. The most advanced smart bombs. Trident nuclear submarines.

With all that destructive power?

Why did America's Generals not recommend a massive bombing strike of all suspected Iraqi nuclear sites?

Explain the reasoning for one American boot on the ground?

Even if you disagree with every word I say?

As leaders of a nation. Should our leaders not have asked every question I pose?

America's military is not fodder or a tool of a leader who had his feelings hurt! Not retribution for an American leader's ego!

No American leader should dare be so bold as to put America's military in danger unless every other option is militarily ruled out.

We watched our representatives vote our bravest off to war.

Did those Representatives ask every question?


Today Iraq is a nation repairing from a devastated prolonged attack by the United States and its allies.

Today Iraqi women who have Iraq Constitutional rights find themselves losing those rights to an Iraqi government that is adapting forms of Sharia Law.

Today America has paid billions in costs to rebuild the devastation to Iraq done by America and its allies.

Iraq has begun forming bonds with the Iranian government that operates under Sharia Law. Sharia Law takes

away many rights granted Iraqi women.

The unprovoked war in Iraq has had dire consequences for the people and infrastructure of Iraq. No consequences! No consequences!

No American leader who voted for the horror, death and destruction that was the Iraq war has faced one penalty for their uneducated, false patriotic vote!

President Bush has received no scorn or continued ridicule for the death, mutilations and severe harm done by following Bush's orders.

It is the duty of America's future Commander in Chief to make sure a lie and travesty like the Iraq War never happens again.
