Further investigate reasons behind invasion of Iraq

News is that the United States of America is withdrawing all troops from Iraq during the next few days -- eight years after the invasion and subsequent occupation. Bully!

From what I can best discern, the invasion of Iraq was to make the world a safer place with the elimination of President Saddam Hussein. It is my suspicion that is not really true.

As I can best recall after these eight years, the initial invasion was supported, virtually in toto, by the Republican Party, headed by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

My opinion is that the initial cause for the Iraq invasion should be further investigated.

And, if it is determined that the invasion and occupation was some kind of a scam, trial of the perpetrators should take place, and those determined guilty should be punished.
