"I won't list all the reasons we should have (Iraq) or how we should have gone about it"
I, for one, would be most interested in hearing your reasons why we should have invaded Iraq, and how we should have gone about it, at a cost approaching $1,000,000,000,000, ~4600 US dead, ~32,000 physically wounded US troops, >200,000 US troops with varying degrees of PTSD that will cost us dearly over at least the next 2 generations, and a minimum of 100,000 Iraqi dead, 3-4 million Iraqi refugees, and a shattered, unstable nation that has gravitated into the Iranian orbit, thereby threatening to destabilize neighboring Sunni nations.
"but, remember we are tied to the UN. How many times did the UN tell Saddam, "we'll give you one more chance but next time there are going to be consequences". 14?"
Are you saying the UN forced us to invade Iraq? Seriously??
