The article examines whether the US government, under the presidency of George W. Bush, accomplished something by invading Iraq under the guise of weapons of mass destruction. As of Saddam Hussein's capture, the Lancet says that 650,000 Iraqis have died. The US itself has incurred more than 21,000 casualties. The results of the November 2006 elections clearly expressed the sentiments of the American people about Iraq. The Democratic Party has the privilege to correct what has been done.
