The Iraq War

Although severe consequences come with the decision of war with Iraq, most blinded United States of America citizens are still yet persuaded to support such a war. The Bush Administration has covered their schemes of war with lies to gain support. While weapons of mass destruction is supposedly the reason why the United States launched military action to begin with, all the clearly ignored consequences will haunt their final decision of war, and will remind them how the war is not and never was justified. Whither the war is for the protection of the United States and their alliances, or for oil production and the spread of democracy, the United States is only intensifying the aggression of the situation.

The Bush Administration’s plan for war in Iraq, violates International laws, furthermore being ethically wrong (Walton). Despite of all the warnings of war, President George W. Bush still tries to convince the United States that war is somehow justified, with his persuasive lies. Although they struggle to justify such an action towards Iraq, war is no and never will be justified. Punishment for such a decision will be the result of loss of allies and the appalling violation of the United States’ historical principle, “never make such an action towards a country that has not harmed America nor America’s depended on allies” (Dudley 28). The consequences, by far out-weigh the positive affects of war.

... time, money, and lives to accomplish what? Instead, Bush needs to swallow his pride and except his unawareness of warnings

and consequences, then informing the blindly persuaded citizens the poorly hidden truth. Eventually weapons of mass destruction will strike the U.S.A., and will be tragic. Until then the United States needs to make their decisions wisely and take more opinions into consideration before making the final decision of launching military action. Overall the United States should only pronounce war when the situation determines war is justified, rather than proceeding with war when there is no evidence backing up justification. Whether the war is for the protection of the United States and it’s alliances, or for oil and the spread of democracy, the United States needs to make decisions that would influence the future of the Nation in a positive way.
