The Iraq invasion was a total mistake,
The Iraq invasion was a war crime, JW, a monstrous war crime, pure and simple.
War of aggression
A war of aggression, sometimes also war of conquest, is a military conflict waged without the justification of self-defense usually for territorial gain and subjugation. The phrase is distinctly modern and diametrically opposed to the prior legal international standard of "might makes right", under the medieval and pre-historic beliefs of right of conquest. Since the Korean War of the early 1950s, waging such a war of aggression is a crime under the customary international law.
Wars without international legality (e.g. not out of self-defense nor sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council) can be considered wars of aggression;
The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, which followed World War II, called the waging of aggressive war "essentially an evil thing...to initiate a war of aggression...is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."
The result was a large increase in the number of anti-American terrorists.
It's always about the US, isn't it?
The "result" is always some absolutely insignificant thing when measured against the horrendous pain and suffering inflicted upon the other party.
This is so UNbelievable!
What the hell is wrong with you people? Is the conception of honesty
so far outside your capabilities, so out of your ken?
Do y'all have any idea of what it is that you have done to Iraq? [and that's only counting since the War of Aggression started] The real horror of 9-11 is what it begat, what you fearful little children allowed to happen in your name.
