Why the USA went to war with Iraq before Afghanistan after 911. ... a good theory
Conventional theory is Al-Qaeda was behind the 911 attack that destroyed the twin towers. The Al-Qaeda group was linked to Afghanistan and Pakistan and possibly Iraq yet the United States went into Iraq first.


Logic dictates the United States should have attacked Afghanistan and Pakistan first.

We didnít go directly after Pakistan because they have nukes. We have currently put Pakistan on the back burner. Perhaps Pakistan will be next.


Afghanistan is a lawless and mostly backwards country. The uneducated citizens would have joined forces with Al-Qaeda and the war would have been totally un-winnable.


Iraq Ö. We kicked their ass in í91 and the citizens of Iraq appeared to want the leadership ( Sadam Hussein) removed. Unfortunately after Kuwait was liberated we didnít take out Sadam Hussein.

Exterminating terrorist worldwide requires a good plan. Logically The USA would want to set a good example and show the world that we will help repressed citizens with our technology and brute strength.

I believe the strategy of the Iraq war was to show the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan that the United States can be trusted to overwhelm the bad guys and NOT take their country as a war prize.

Iraq was supposed to be a simple in & out war. We didnít count on the size and strength of the insurgency.

Currently Iraq still has US occupation but is not ruled by the US. This can be interpreted a number of ways but ultimately it is clear that the US isnít interested in owning Iraq.

Iraq should serve as a model of freedom. Hopefully the good people of Afghanistan and Pakistan will see that the United States ultimately wants both countries to self govern and stop the terrorist bullshit on their own soil.

So the Iraq war was a logical place to start.

Ummm... OP...

We attacked Afghanistan on October 7, 2001.

We attacked Iraq on March 20, 2003.


We had been enforcing No Fly Zones still in effect in Iraq since the first Gulf War (as a Disabled Navy Veteran of that "war," I like to call it Gulf War Poppy.)

You may have been very young at the time but still-- Wikipedia actually works.

You do know that even Bush had to admit that the Iraqis had nothing at all to do with 9/11, right OP?

You know that, right?

Re: Why the USA went to war with Iraq before Afghanistan after 911. ... a good theory
With just a cursory knowledge of geography it is obvious as to why we went in to Iraq first.

Iran IS the primary culprit in propagating radical Islamic terrorists.
Started when Carter dumped the Shah and brought in the radical clerics.
Iran is proven to have been behind the Lebanon CIA HQ and Marine Barracks bombings in the 80s.
Iran protects Bin Laden's family and supported him.... Bin Laden was a tool of Iran with compliance from other Mid East Islamic countries.

So just look at the map.
Afganistan lies to the East of Iran and Iraq lies to the West of iran.
They were trying to box them in with two strategic staging areas.
Alas...we elected an Islamist sympathizer... all that money and blood down the drain.

Saddam tried to kill daddy Bush in Jordan and he WAS an SOB.
He did have WMDs...
Biologicals that have likely been set upon us.... your the CDC is just not telling you.
Saddam may be dead but he might still win the war!

Isn't it interesting now that NATO is PURPOSELY bombing Libya's civilians yet the radical left groups and radical left MSM are mum.
