I had a lengthy discussion with a friend who was trying to defend our continued presence in Iraq with the "War on terror" bit. I brought up the point that our current war on terror is merely a mask for something else, because domestic terrorist organizations (KKK, Neo-Nazis, etc) are not fought against as ardently as the Muslim extremists are supposedly being fought, and are even protected in some instances by a very shaky connection to a civil right. I was just wondering what everyone else thought about it.

And how many civilian casualties have there been since we stormed over there? There's a reason countries haven't tried to take a war to terrorist groups before, they're ghosts. We move our troops to Afghanistan, they move. We mover our troops to Iraq, again, they can just move.

Casualties would be happening even without the US there. Killing off Saddam was a good thing. I don't see the war as being entirely wrong, but it was extremely poorly executed.

Saddam Hussein was actually pretty OK at keeping peace within his own country, but he was a warmonger so screw him.

True, true. It was an example though.
