Just for exercise, let’s try to pick the real reason for Iraq war. The suggested reasons are:

  1. Iraq was close to producing nuclear weapons. This report of International Atomic Energy Agency states that “after three months of intrusive inspections, we have to date found no evidence or plausible indication of the revival of a nuclear weapon program in Iraq?
  2. Bush said “The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa?. There are evidences that, apparently, the evidence supporting Bush’ claim was forged by CIA officers
  3. Bush linked the Iraqi regime with terrorists and 9/11. At the secret briefing in ‘01 Bush was informed that Saddam regarded Al Qaeda as a potential threat to his secular regime
  4. Iraq has 11% of world oil reserves

The homework: please try to pick the most likely reason for the war
