Iraq has “weapons of mass destruction” and

– the 2003 Iraq war




. At 5:30 a.m. local time on March 20, 2003, a violent explosion sounded in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq. US President Bush then delivered a televised speech at the White House, announcing the beginning of the war between the United States and its allies to disarm Iraq, marking the official outbreak of the Iraq war.

if Iraq was to blame for the 1991 Gulf War, Iraq could be said to have been wronged by the United States in launching the Iraq war this time. The United States accuses Iraq of being associated with Al Qaeda terrorist organization and possessing “weapons of mass destruction”. However, several years after the end of the Iraq war, the United States has not produced conclusive evidence, nor has it found “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq. People will not only ask: who did Iraq recruit and who provoked?

in the Gulf War, the United States was fully capable of invading Baghdad and overthrowing Saddam Hussein’s regime, but the United States was afraid of falling into Iraq and wanted to use Iraq to curb Iran. Therefore, the United States supported the entry of the United Nations weapons verification team into Iraq and withdrew American troops in Iraq. This is not to say that the United States does not have the idea of “toppling Sa”. On the contrary, the United States advocates taking sanctions against Iraq and using United Nations weapons verification to contain Iraq. On the other hand, it actively supports Iraqi opposition forces and hopes that the Iraqi regime can evolve peacefully. This can not only reduce the pressure of international public opinion facing the direct invasion of Iraq by the United States, but also reduce U.S. military spending and casualties. It can be said to be the best policy. However, Saddam Hussein thwarted armed coups and assassinations of himself again and again, so the United States found that there was little hope of launching a coup in Iraq to overthrow Saddam Hussein’s regime.

. In this case, the Clinton administration put forward the idea of changing the Iraqi regime by force in 1998, but it was unable to find a suitable opportunity for a long time. The “9 ` 11” incident just provided the United States with such an opportunity and became the fuse of the war. After the




and “9 ` 11” events, although there is no evidence that Saddam’s regime in Iraq is related to the “9 ` 11” events or Al Qaeda, the Bush administration has closely linked Iraq with the “anti-terrorism” war from the beginning, and has considered attacking Iraq while attacking the Taliban and Al Qaeda. After the initial victory in the war in Afghanistan, Bush said that he would expand the target of the United States from countries sheltering terrorism to countries that “develop” weapons of mass destruction and may use these weapons to intimidate other countries “.

on January 29, 2002, Bush dished out the theory of “axis of evil” in his first state of the Union address, accusing Iraq of seeking to develop “weapons of mass destruction” and threatening the security of the United States and the world. On June 1, Bush delivered a speech at West Point, putting forward the “military strike strategy”, pointing the spearhead at Iraq again. On July 9, Bush made it clear at the White House press conference that the United States should “use all means to change Saddam’s regime”. On September 12, Bush delivered a speech on the US Iraq policy at the UN General Assembly, accusing Saddam’s regime of violating human rights and democracy and supporting terrorism, and demanding that the UN Security Council take firm action. If no action is taken, the United States will not hesitate to take unilateral action to eradicate Saddam’s regime.

subsequently, the US Congress passed a bill authorizing all means, including military strikes, against Iraq, and urged the UN Security Council to pass resolution 1441 on weapons verification against Iraq on November 8, 2002, approving the return of the UN monitoring, inspection and Inspection Commission to Iraq.

in fact, the Bush administration has made up its mind to “overthrow Sa”. All it has done is to find excuses to weaken Iraq’s strength and win the time for war preparation. Once the time is ripe, war will be inevitable.

despite the opposition of most countries in the world, the United States bypassed the UN Security Council and openly launched a war against a sovereign country. Is it really like what it claims to be “disarming Saddam, overthrowing Saddam regime, eliminating biological and chemical weapons” and liberating the “suffering beings” in Iraq? In fact, the United States launched the war in Iraq under the pretext of “Sima Zhao’s heart is well known”.

in the Iraq war first of all, the US war in Iraq is the need of the US global anti-terrorism policy. After the September 11 incident, the United States believed that the direct threat it faced was terrorism, so it spared no effort to combat terrorism and strive to be the vanguard of international counter-terrorism. However, it is not easy to fight terrorism. The United States overthrew the Taliban regime through the Afghan war, but so far it has not captured bin Laden and destroyed al Qaeda. Therefore, the United States believes that to combat terrorism, we must eradicate it from the source. So where is the source of international terrorism?

the United States believes that the source of international terrorism is in the Middle East. The political system, religious beliefs, educational methods, living habits and media propaganda in the Middle East are hotbeds for anti American sentiment and terrorism, and Saddam is the “back boss”. Therefore, overthrowing Saddam Hussein’s regime and knocking out the “leader” of anti US forces in the Middle East can not only eradicate the hotbed of terrorism, but also play a role in knocking down anti US countries such as Iran, Syria and Lebanon.

secondly, the United States launched the Iraq war to plunder oil resources and curb the “oil neck” of other countries. As we all know, the United States is not only the world’s economic power, but also the world’s energy consuming power. 60% of its energy depends on imports. Iraq is rich in oil resources, which is described as “land floating on the oil sea”. Its oil reserves are 115 billion barrels, second only to 264 billion barrels in Saudi Arabia, ranking second in the world. Moreover, Iraq’s oil exploitation cost is low
