Hmmm. The phrase- "Apples and Oranges" in English is an analogy for "different". WWII and the Iraq invasion are different, almost in their respective entirety. I'm not going to bother to explain the obvious and go into why they are vastly different, vastly. But, yes a war is still a war and their are guns, pants, boots, shirts, helmets, death, etc involved. So in loose terms they were virtually the same war.In short: was going to Iraq a bad idea? Yes, it was. Absolutely. Rationalize it all you want with loose WWII comparisons, it was politically, economically, humanely, and all around a foolish and reckless thing to do.
Anyone expect to go into Iran soon?
People always forget that we DID find WMD. Saddam went on tv bragging about the ones that could hit Israel and the Kurds despite the rules imposed upon him. That alone was enough.
