There is just way too much opposition from Iraq, they obviously do not want it, let them have there dictatorship, it is not our problem. This is a useless war now. We do have to give credit to the many countries that helped us by sending in there own troops to Iraq. Mainly England, Italy and Poland who sent a combined total of almost 15,000 troops to the 130,000 America sent. Unfortunately there are casualties.
Casualties include over 1000 American deaths and 7722 wounded American’s in Iraq. What about the Iraqi people? Are they cooperating? Nope, so far around 15,000 have been killed 30% of the deaths were civilians. This is not right for Bush to do. He should not be in Iraq killing that many people
