    I don't need to look it up, you know why there was no agreement on anything? Because it wasn't going to happen. They didn't want us there, of course at the time ISIS wasn't running wild there but that's how shit goes.

    You're right -- you don't have to look it up.

    After all, why confuse yourself with facts? They are SUCH inconvenient little bastards, aren't they?

    Oil is no longer important. Iraq has few known reserves. The war was not fought for this. It was fought for philosophy or religion and pride. THe USA had to hit back at some Arabs after 9'11. Iraq was convenient target. There are now no interest in Iraq for the West is worth fighting for.

    You're demonstrating a lack of understanding of the geopolitical realities of the Middle East. You need to do a little studying.

    You can't do over your life. Whats done is done. If we can undo our lives id would go back to age 6 and try to do it right and then graduate and id would had a great job by now.

    I did not say that Iraq had no oil, Just it was not the main reason for the conflict. Saud Arabia has more oil but no conflict as it sinni. By the way I do have four degrees.

    "Iraq has few known reserves."
    Yes you did say. It did have much to do with the attemots to form a new government as the oil was localized in only two areas leaving the third in a quandry.
    And I have three dogs, so what ? If you make statements that are blatantly incorrect a hundred degrees mean nothing.
