After $500 Billion, 2,300 dead American soldiers, 50,000 dead Iraq children and civilians, I keep forgetting why we attacked Iraq. Is it the WMD? -- Oops Is is Iraq's link to terrorism? -- then why is Saddam not being tried in the US for the death of 3,000 Americans Is it to fight terrorism? then what is Osama doing in Pakistan? Is it to deter future terrorism? then what is the axis-of-evils Iran and North Korea doing building more nuclear bombs? So tell me again: What did those 2,300 American soldiers die for? .
