Do You believe that former President Bush invaded Iraq to complete a personal agenda?

Absolutely. Bush's father horribly betrayed the Iraqi people and caused the rise of Al Qaeda after the first Gulf Slaughter (I won't give those one-sided bloodbaths the dignity of calling them Wars), and Dubya tried to fix his father's mess. Dubya being an idiot however, he just made things worse. Note that there was *zero* international terrorism based in Iraq under Saddam - his Secret Police were much too efficient for that. Bottom line is that this whole affair was just about oil and personal agendas, never about 'the security of the Free World'.

Thank you for your insightful answer. The American people are easily duped by politicians, which is why we are in the plight we are in now. Some of the answers here are great examples of how easily Americans are blinded to the truth.

A special chuckle reserved for Dubya being an idiot!

It was a national requirement that became an agendum: Payback.

As usual, truth lies in the simplest. But we have become a society so confused such truths escape us. A superpower's response must be disproportionate - when the lion roars all must listen. The perception that an Afghanistan conquest would not send the message lay at the heart of the need to grind a bigger axe.

Thanks Pencil. Somewhere I still have the The Week (magazine) issue that came out just after the attacks. On the cover appeared the burning/collapsing towers . . . Under the lone heading: "Who Will Pay?" Looking back, that simple sentence seems to sum up nicely the immediate sentiments, and the self evident imperative, just after the event.

And now we have a bigger challenge in Afghanistan than was necessary. They have been honing their skills while American dumped our fortune in Iraq.

No, there is no personal agenda, the reason of the Iraq war is they want to get the oil in the Iraq.

There is no doubt about a personal problem between the Bush family and Hussein and the Bushes pulled the entire country into there personal fight with Hussein, something should have been done about it but was not, so they got away with it.....

I have no doubt that former president Bush had a personal problem with Sadam Hussein. At no other time in American history has a president made such a public personal attack on another country's leader. I fear the two men were too much alike for Bush to tolerate.

Your answer is very interesting and very close to the nerve of the whole situation. I believe that Bush Jr. Should be tried for war crimes as well as his father.
