I've been debating this with friends and I'm a firm believer that the only reason we invaded Iraq was so that we cleared up the airspace threats from Iraq in order to invade or strike Iran.
What do you guys think?

News at ten tonight is discussing the Iran issue, may be worth a watch to see what the gossip on the media front is.Bagster said:Don't get me wrong mate, I wouldn't be too surprised if Iran were to get a slap soon, but I don't think Dubya could think that far ahead, let alone plan 2 steps ahead on his own.
You have been reading too many issues of "conspiracy monthly" methinks.
http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0417-03.htmI could hardly believe it when Donald Rumsfeld said the words. Not only was he accusing Syria of harboring escaped officials from Saddam Hussein's government. He also had intelligence information, he claimed, that showed Syria has been trying to develop chemical weapons.
Syria may well be guilty of harboring fugitive Iraqi officials. U.S. troops recently captured Saddam Hussein's half-brother Watban Ibrahim Hasan al-Tikriti, a former government official and alleged master of torture, near the Syrian border. But chemical weapons? As Yogi Berra reportedly once said: "It's beginning to look like dÃ©j ... vu all over again."
Baghdad had barely been secured by U.S. troops and the looting hadn't even stopped before the Bushies were making warlike noises at the Syrians. Picking up the refrain that "there are chemical weapons in Syria," President George W. Bush, fresh from a weekend at Camp David, warned the Syrian government that it "needs to cooperate" with the United States and its partners by not harboring supporters of Hussein's government. This prompted Syrian political analyst Mohammed Aziz Shukri to reply: "Who, in the name of heaven, does he think he is? Is he the god of this Earth?"
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld issued a stern warning to Syria on Friday, saying military supplies, including night-vision goggles, were passing from that country into Iraq, posing a "direct threat" to coalition forces.
"We consider such trafficking as hostile acts and will hold the Syrian government accountable for such shipments," Rumsfeld said at a Pentagon briefing.
Rumsfeld also warned Iran -- a longtime enemy of Iraq -- about proxy forces moving into Iraq, where the United States and coalition forces are waging a war to topple the regime of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein
thats easy to answer....... HEEL BOY! SIT! GOOD BOY NOW I CAN SHRINK THE DEBT FROM WWII.Arfur-Roe-v2s said:In 50 years they will open the box to the public, I'll be long gone by that stage.
It will probably turn out to be the best intelleigence coup in history. Someone conned Uncle Sam big time. Bearing in mind that the world new IRAQ didn't have any nasty surprises, who had the most to gain to see the Iraqis turned over?
Why; their age old enemy Iran. They probably supplied the bogus info, lit the blue touch paper and stood back to watch - and then reap the benefits of the post invasion debacle. The real question is what did Bush say to B liar to get him on board?
