Gee, there were so many but the worst was not having enough troops to stop the looting right after we won the war. Fanatics looted armories and got most of the bombs they are now using to cause chaos.

WE did not have a good plan for once we over took the country. We had no stabilization plan and not enough troops up front to hold down the situation.

Before the war strategy, before going to war, before trying to convince the UN to sanction the war.....America's mistake was allowing Bush to steal his first election.

What went wrong was that it was an offensive maneuver. Offensive wars Never win. In order to win, one must have the support of the population. This is only true when one is fighting in their own territory or for independence in their own territory.

Some of the first things the military did in Iraq was destruct a lot of the government and all of the army. This, combined with power outages and a lack of basic safety resulted in massive unemployment. This was the first most devastating thing of the invasion, and they are still trying to correct it.

I think that America should've sent in about 250,000 troops, not the lowly 130,000 that we did. That number of troops could not reasonably keep insurgents at bay. We should have sealed off the borders with Iran and Syria to keep them from coming in from Iran.
