If 9/11 never happened, would we have any reason - not afflilated with 9/11 - to be in Iraq now?If 9/11 never happened, would we have any reason - not afflilated with 9/11 - to be in Iraq now?
I believe the US would have taken Saddam out regardless. The US had supported Saddam during the Iran/Iraq war with cash and equipment (including WMD's). The US was responsible for Saddam's consolidation of power during this time period which allowed him to operate unimpeeded. In my opinion the US was morally obligated to remove Saddam from power because the US played a major role in his development. Again, that is just my opinion.
I think the best evidence that debunks the 9-11 conspiracy theories is the footage of Bush sitting in that classroom looking like a deer caught in the headlights upon hearing the news of the attacks in New York. If Bush was involved in a conspiracy its hard to believe that he would want to be portrayed as being clueless at the key moment. Unless that was part of the conspiracy and Bush is a great actor.
