I kinda thought Saddam Hussein was so busy yelling death to America, promising he was going to kill all of us, that we went over there to drop kick him bum over the wall. But then he got executed for crimes against his own people and other people of Middle East States.A little known fact is without authorization U.S. Backed Coalition forces diverted a great portion of Iraq's processed diesel fuel for their own military vehicles during the entire war which drastically reduced military resupply assets from their home countries. When Iraq destroyed Kuwait's oil fields also without authorization The U.S. Military rescue teams diverted the existing Kuwaiti processed diesel fuel for their military vehicles. The U.S. Navy and some carrier based Marine air detachments took as much of Kuwait's Air Force little used reserve JP-5 fuel and The CIA aviation assets along with Blackwater security planes and helicopters along with U.S. Air force and Army aviation support wings took their JP-8 fuel thus saving The American military tens of millions of dollars which the National Security Council claims they had no knowledge of and The Joint Chiefs of Staff claimed never happened. That's small potato's (though and I consider the spoils of war) compared to Exxon/Mobile, Chevron and Shell Oil with support from Halliburton took over a number of Iraqi crude oil processing plants and started drilling for more oil which to today still exports millions of barrels to America.

So yes Willa America didn't invade Iraq not as retaliation for 9/11, it was just convenient timing or WMD or even oil initially but to preempt Saddam from invading Kuwait over his debt to them he wanted dissolved over his helping them against an Iran invasion and they said no deal, pay up. However just like "The Ugly American" our Armed Forces just took what they wanted because it saved them hundreds of millions of dollars and besides who was going to complain?
