Eliminating the former strategies, by means of inspections and the passing of new UN rules must be changed. Using military and also diplomatic techniques, as outlined in the United States new strategy, is the new means of dealing with Iraq. There are still some politics and new war strategies to be developed and perfected before the new, more aggressive, plan should take place. President Bush is doing exactly what he should. He is taking time to overlook the idea and make sure that more forceful action against Iraq is what is needed and that the new ideas won’t upset our allies or unfairly target innocent Iraqi citizens.
The war in Iraq is over now. Looking back on a huge controversy makes one side seem clearly more “correct” than the other. Yet in the beginning there were two sides to the controversy about the war in Iraq. There was the terror brought upon by the 9/11 attacks, people that the government wished to punish or kill like Saddam Hussain and Osama Bin Laden, and a country which was in “need” of US help both politically and financially. At the time of the Terrorist attacks, people were afraid of what else the terrorists were planning or could do and so George Bush sent troops in to look for Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).
Iraq had been in a regime where they did not have any liberty and they were robbed by their own government. This cause was another excuse for President Bush and his administration to declare a war against Iraq. A year after the war, the Iraqi people seem worst than before the war started. II.POSITIVE EFFECTS A positive effect of the Iraqi War left was the overthrown of Saddam Hussein. With their advanced technology, the United States’ military could strategize smartly where Hussein was and captured him.
For example, a 2004 report by the Iraq Survey Group concluded that the evidence that Powell offered to support the allegation that the Iraqi government possessed weapons of mass destruction was a blatant lie (Alexandrovan1). There were no weapons of mass destruction found. President Bush was aware that the rumors of mass destruction weapons were unfounded and yet he led Americans and the United Nations to war. Personal revenge and hatred against Saddam spawned the Iraq war. Bush,... ... middle of paper ... ...as threatening the unity and the sovereignty of Iraq,” he said, as if the United States had played no role (Rubin1).
The Iraq War, our government’s invasion dubbed “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” had finally arrived after declaring war on March 19, 2003. The U.S.-British coalition to invade Iraq and remove Hussein’s dictatorship has been both a beneficial and damaging political effort. A war that began because of Hussein’s unwillingness to participate in weapons inspections became a messy situation that would last over a decade. President George W. Bush announced his trademark “War on terror” and, as a result, invaded Iraq on the grounds that Hussein was hiding weapons of mass destruction which threatened world security. Prime Minister Tony Blair concured with Bush and believed that the world would be safer when Iraq disarmed itself.
There is no tie between Saddam Hussein and the terrorist attacks on America on September 11, 2001. (www.nationalpriorities.org) Then why are we focusing our attention on Iraq and not so much on Afghanistan anymore? George W. Bush believes Saddam Hussein has chemical and biological weapons that are a threat to the United States. (www.nationalpriorities.org) However, there are other countries who have more leathal weapons such as the United States, the Ukraine, Pakistan, Russia, China,
Those weapons in the hand a radical leader such as him, has always been a worry of many nations in past times. Warnings were given to let US weapons inspectors into Saddam’s supposed nuclear facilities, but he refused. Is it now morally right to take this man down in assumption that he is hiding these weapons? Some say yes. He has done it before and he has stated that he will do it again.
We were complicit in the birth of this regime through an unconstitutional act of foreign aggression. Then, in the late 1970’s President Carter invigorated that Hussein invades Iran, hoping to remove the Islam regime there. Hundreds of thousands of deaths occurred because of this invasion and we did absolutely nothing to protest these brutal violations of human rights because we were behind it. Hussein used chemical weapons in this invasion and nobody protested this either. (Babka) In 2002, George W. Bush sent a letter to Congress requesting the authorization he needed to use military force against Iraq.
President H.W. Bush sent in troops and supplies to calm this unexpected invasion, but it soon became an all-out war. Saddam Hussein ruled over Iraq during this time, and he sent his military to invade Kuwait. The causes of the war are often not thought of, but the effects of the war are widely known. These effects are devastating for every country that was involved in this conflict.
A war fought on the premise that this country had ties to Osama Bin Laden, was harboring terrorist, and had nuclear ambitions. This turned out to be fabricated and questioned the legality of the first strike that commenced the Iraq War in 2003. First we have the function of defense according to Art. Its main purposes are to ward off an attack and to minimize damages to one if attacked. Iraq being a failing state was in no position to mount any type of attack against the United States.
