What does everyone think of the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan? Do you think it was justified for the U.S.A to invade either country? Why or why not? If so, have these efforts been fruitful or not? And what should happen in the future?
I, personally, am still unsure what the official reason for this was. Of course, I've heard the rhetoric about WMD's in the case of Iraq, which turned out to be false. I've also heard of "Spreading Freedom and Democracy" to Iraq. I can see a justification in disarming a state known to have WMD's and has shown significant risk of using them, but I find absolutely no justification in "Spreading Democracy" of course, we also have the more cynical theory, that the entire invasion was motivated by oil and profit.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks about this, I think I can safely say that most people on this forum have been bombarded with news of these conflicts since 2003, I'm sure we all have some sort of feeling on this.
