That was the latest stated purpose for the invasion but was that the real purpose? It seems to me that the real purpose was just to bomb Iraq halfway back to the stone age so that it would be less of a threat to Israel.
If that was the case then why did we rebuild their military with our modern tactics and weapons?
When even the UN thought this guy had enough nerve agent to kill every person on Earth, one doesn’t need to look for a shadowy “real reason” for the invasion. That’s just sloppy reasoning.
