Please could anyone explain to me in twenty words or less, why Iraq was ever invaded. I really must need educating because three years on and I still really do not understand why Iraq was invaded in the first place. No bullshiit please just the reasons that justifed the Iraq invasion. If you are clear as to the reasons then please sum it up in twenty words or less if you can i.e. (keep it simple so that my simple brain can process the logic). Thanks for all your help.
