I think we are only finishing up what we should have done during the first Gulf War. Not just liberate Kuwait, but also remove Saddam from power.
I do think that we went in under false pretenses though. The whole WMD thing is what really turned this war sour in the American public. Before we didnt find anything, everyone was all for getting Saddam out of there. We were still realing on the high from the 9-11 attacks and looking to eliminate our enemies.
Handle it differently? Meh. The US Government knows way more about stuff that goes on that is never told to the press. For all we know there was WMD found, but maybe the means that those were created came from US soil or allies.
Also if you recall the dozen or so semi trucks that were leaving Baghdad the days and hours before US troops got there. It was being covered by CNN, live. Those went north to Syria. For all we know, Syria has them.
From a military standpoint, war is needed sometimes. From a civilian standpoint, war is never needed. Me, coming from a military background, am all for the war.
I also think that we need to eliminate all terrorists. Hunt these guys down, kill them, put a stop to the stupid IEDs, the suicide bombings and all that other horse ****. In my mind, terrorists are the worse [female cats] in the world. If they aren't man enough to fight real people that can defend themselves and fight back, then they deserve to die.
