With the 10th anniversary of the Iraq war this month, many unanswered questions still remain as to why we were lied to about the Iraqi invasion in 2003.

Now that U.S. troops are largely out of Iraq, we can only hope that Iraq becomes a stable democracy.

The U.S. sacrifice was costly in deaths and wounded warriors who gave so much — not to mention more than $1 trillion spent. With so much at stake in this war, we Americans want Iraq to succeed. The hardest part to accept is the false reasons that President George W. Bush’s administration gave to justify the invasion to begin with.

Hopefully, Iraq does become a stable democracy, otherwise, what other reason do we have to feel that some good came out of a not-so-good decision?
