Iraq War History Links
After the terror attacks of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 President George Bush and his team linked the Iraqis with Al-Qaeda. Claims that Saddam Hussein was racing to build weapons of mass destruction made it a Bush imperative to topple Sadaam from his place of power and bring a bastion of democracy to the Middle East.
While toppling of Saddam came quickly, bringing peace to the country had not been as swift. The war soon became a political football with both Democrats and Republicans touting separate plans to end the war. The link to Al-Qaeda nor the claims of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were ever substantiated.
