The month of March will be always remembered as the month the US invaded Iraq 13 years ago.
Unfortunately, only one American politician, senator Cruz, stated publicly that the invasion of Iraq destabilized the Middle East region. He furthermore said that the removal of Saddam Hussein was a mistake because under his rule Iraq was stable.
Senator Cruz and do not support him made a correct statement. However, he did not elaborate on the invasion, which led to the killing of more than one million Iraqi civilians, and the destruction of Iraq physically, economically and politically. It also led to the creation of ISIS. He also did not refer to the killing of more than 4500 American soldiers. They died in vain!
Furthermore, Cruz did not bring up the fact that Bush’s invasion was based on fabricated false reports, which he used to misled Americans, and justify the Iraqi invasion.
George Tenet, Director of the CIA, stated publicly “Iraq posses no weapons of mass destruction and Saddam Hussein does not pose threats to the US.”
It is regrettable that the US Congress ignored the CIA report and surrendered to lobbyists’ s pressure supporting the Iraqi invasion.
