In fairness, the "intelligence committee" put together under Bush that said Iraq had WMDs was hand selected and drew a completely different conclusion than the NSA, CIA, and even the UN (who, if memory serves, said earlier the same day we decided to attack there was no evidence of WMDs).

I served two deployments in Iraq. Ultimately, I highly doubt putting boots in the ground does anything but make things worse for us in the Middle East in the long run. We all know 99.9% of the people going through check points probably have zero intention of harming us but, you're trained to treat 100% of them as if they are. It helps contribute to shootings of innocent civilians in a poor, uneducated, and religiously fanatical part of the world. It's a great recipe for terrorist recruitment.
