Yet, there's a lot of people that don't buy into that argument and don't take those facts as facts.

Why didn't the US invade UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, or any other developed oil-rich nation in the Middle East? Iraq was the answer because it seemed as an attractive oil-rich country, but yet poor along with a lot of political, civil, and economic instability.

At the end of the day, the main motivator for any government action is money; not safety, defense, or social responsibility, like large portion of conservatives think.
Largely accurate, but I was considered a "conspiracy theorist" for pointing out these facts back in 2005.

As do some people that promote the 9/11 conspiracy theories. The whole 9/11 thing was a made up story by the government directly linked to the invasion of Iraq.

Oh! We got terrorists that have weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that just attacked us, let's make up a story about how a group of terrorists that had 3 hours of flight training hijacked planes and flew them into the towers, that way we can use that as an excuse to go and get rich from Iraq's oil!

No Boeing 757 ever crashed the pentagon, nor the hijackers ever did what they did to the WTC. That fabricated story by the government in less than 24 hours is called a fairy tale.

Before I go on, you are saying you think that 9/11 was orchestrated by the government?

all that stuff happened.

what happened after was the Bush administration manipulating the deaths of 3,000 to emotionally justify a long-planned-in-the-abstract invasion that the American public would otherwise have never supported.

The government-sponsored official 9/11 conspiracy theory sounds pretty dodgy, right enough.

At this point, it's down to either LIHOP (Let it happen on purpose) or MIHOP (Made it happen on purpose).

I can't really take seriously the remarkable set of coincidences and improbable circumstances that would lead us to believing the official conspiracy theory, any serious and objective observer has long since dismissed that.
