    1) We got a re-assertion of our dominance...
    2) It's now much easier for us to say "go **** yourself" to those countries who showed their true anti-US colors.
    3) Whether they like it or not Iraq will be under direct US influence for the next 5yrs and probably indirect influence for the next 10. I'm sure they will grow into a very very powerful ally in that region for us - whether they like it or not.
    4) We get to shuck the UN, we've been trying since 1994-95 to do that, now we can.
    5) We've tightened our grip in the arabian peninsula and are marching towardz new influence in the cuacasus (many NATO bases are being moved to the smaller former soviet republics).
    6) fill in here.... there's a million awesome things we got, i haven't even touched on the oil or economic benefits - it's all good - if you're american.

    There are no more weapons of mass destruction and the world is completely safe because there are no other countries that could POSSIBLY give wmd to terrorists (especially not china, russia, israel, india, pakistan, south africa, or north korea) and there are no longer atrocities being comitted in the world because saddam hussein is no longer in power and now all of the arabs like chicken and surf the internet and do drugs and want to be just like us

    I completely agree with OSR. However, there was the downside of the war that golfinguy mentioned. Although, in time, when it's clearly shown the benefits Iraq received from the war, hatred towards America from Arabs will decrease.

    the funny part about this is that clinton basicly said this to our military.

    "ok guys, theres no more soviet union so we cant possible need a decent military. lets cut you budge in half and see how french we can make you."
    -president bill "wheres monica" clinton

    ummmm, we also have 99.9% of the arab world hating us.
    what would you prefer? we could of let him stay in power, but when they finally get around to overthrowing a couple years later we get blamed for not doing anything. but if we do get involved its imperialism. i hate to say it, but do we really care? a bunch of basicly hillbillies with aks are angry, atleat the guy that could be a handfull and could do some real damge to us is gone. it will take a while but people will learn, atleast nothing can happen to us .

    yes, i said us. if you are a american you should want us to succeed first the other countries and you should value american lives just alittle more.

    its rarely are figh, but we still get involved. half the time our(yes, are "allies") dont have a chance. its seems like appreciated every one in the military and everybody that died became to un politicaly correct. but this is "progress".

    i hate when of all of the intelligence crap gets thrown in, all of your kind just runs to their momies crying and yelling heil clinton heil clinton.

    its the truth, what have other countried ever done for us? what have we done for them? what have we tried to do for them? what have they tried to do for us?

    we should just drop from the un and be done wit it, perminate alliances never work. just like giving every one a say doesnt work. how many of the countries objecting/complainging have any right to? half of the people a make a couple of chickens a year! its a war of the civilazations,
    not 3rd world countries.

    Wow, I really hope that someone like you never attains any form of power whatsoever. If so, we'll be nuking anyone who says "USA sucks."

    ohh no, you've got this wrong... 99.9999998% of the arabs hated us before this -- ie. 9/11 -- ie. there bin laden t-shirtz and other crap. We've now killed a good percentage of their most fanatical who went to Afghanistan and then iraq to fight jihad!!! -- those who survived ran back home with their tailz between their legs.

    Now 99.8% and falling hate us and we've removed a source of funding and weapons for these terrorists and also a huge reason for hating us -- namely that our troops were stationed inside of kuwait and saudi arabia -- our troops are being pulled out of saudi arabia and the number of troops in kuwait and elsewhere are being reduced.

    I have a strange fondness for this JIHAD!!! now, i'm not talking about terrorizm -- but this is why they launched 9/11 -- it was an attempt to goad us into jihad -- they got their wish and we aint done yet either...
