The Case Against Iraq
Don Boudreaux at Cafe Hayek recently posted a very relevant critique of the war in Iraq. The original reasons given for the war have proven untrue or unfounded, and a war is something too big to be entered in lightly. At best, the war in Iraq was a great mistake. At worst, it was a deliberate deception of the American people. Hindsight is 20/20, but knowing now that there are no weapons of mass destruction, that Saddam was not connected to the events that took place on September 11th, and that Iraq posed no credible threat to any American interests, how can people support the war? We have lost over 2,000 American lives, and spents several billion dollars. To what end?
