  • Where would this country be if we hadn't invaded Iraq?

    Just exploring a what if. I had originally thought about what if 9/11 hadn't happened but - I'm not sure we don't go in anyway?

    My thoughts -

    Gas at $2.50 a gallon.
    Korea still being considered the hot spot.
    With greater focus on Afganistan - I think we would have remained in control their rather than losing that war as we speak.
    Greater focus on Education
    Greater focus on Health Care
    Greater focus on Prescription Drug reform.
    National security would be higher
    A balanced budget

    Oh I left out no wounded or dead.

            My guess is we'd be pretty much right where we are now...it ain't easy to move a whole country.

              Probably only this one. Everything else would be the same. Plus the money that has been spent on Iraq just wouldn't have been spent. It isn't like all of that would have went to education or health care.

                Oh, Schwa is so cute when he gets like this.

                Don't be silly, if not Iraq, we would have found some other brown people to attack.

                      If we haven't invaded Iraq, the muslims would have invaded the US and taken over.

                      We all would be kneeling on the floor 5x a day and Kev would be wearing a burka.

                      That's for sure.

                          Probably East St.

                          I'd better lay low.

                              Maybe Osama bin Laden would have been hanged instead of Saddam Hussein.
