The worst days of my life were in Iraq, and the best days were there, too. My fondest memories of the Iraq War are of the people – both Americans and Iraqis – and the opportunity we saw in one another, for our countries, and for which we fought.
Seth Moulton
By the time the 2008 election arrived, we had finally won the Iraq War, or we were on the road to winning it. We won starting in the summer of 2007 going into late 2011.
Tom Cotton
In 2007, I was given the humbling privilege of being made an honorary member of the United States Marine Corps in recognition of my visits to troops during the Iraq War.
Chuck Norris
I was a part of the planning and attack package intelligence team for the strike against Syria in 1983 – in which we lost a pilot and had another one captured until Jesse Jackson got him out – and numerous other operations against Syria both before the Iraq war and during the insurgency.
Malcolm Nance
I ran in 2006 as an opponent of the Iraq War, and I came to Congress to change overreliance on U.S. military power.
Chris Murphy
Both the ‘Gregor’ series and ‘The Hunger Games’ are what I call lightning-bolt ideas. There was a moment where the idea came to me. With ‘The Hunger Games,’ the lightning bolt sort of hit at a moment when I was channel surfing between reality TV and the coverage of the Iraq war.
Suzanne Collins
As I was writing ‘The Shock Doctrine’, I was covering the Iraq War and profiteering from the war, and I started to see these patterns repeat in the aftermath of natural disasters, like the Asian tsunami and then Hurricane Katrina.

American POWs from the last Iraq war, who were held prisoner and tortured by Iraq, are now being prevented by our government from suing the Iraqis who tortured them.
Dana Rohrabacher
The Iraq war was fought by one-half of one percent of us. And unless we were part of that small group or had a relative who was, we went about our lives as usual most of the time: no draft, no new taxes, no changes. Not so for the small group who fought the war and their families.
Bob Schieffer
The president led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven assertions without evidence; he embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international coalition.

Kristen Soltis Anderson
Most people here agree that the rhetoric got overblown on both sides of the Atlantic before the Iraq war, and it was a disagreement among friends over the timing, not the substance, of the Iraq war.
John S. Tanner
I mean, we’re going to probably debate the Iraq war for at least as long as I’m alive.
Paul Wolfowitz
In the Iraq war, for instance, so much of the information is digitized and can easily be wiped out. That will make it very hard to write accurate histories. Also, there’s a much greater opportunity for suppression of information before it can even be archived.
Antony Beevor
Joe Biden has supported sending Americans to die in wars for 50 years, including the never-ending Iraq War.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
The sitting prime minister, Jose Aznar, who had strongly backed the U.S.-led Iraq War, was unseated by a challenger who then pulled Spanish troops out of Iraq. The Madrid terrorist attacks are generally regarded as being the key to why Aznar, who had been leading in the polls, was defeated.
Peter Bergen
Syria is attracting a lot more Westerners than the Iraq War ever did because it’s the perfect Sunni jihad.
Peter Bergen

Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein brutally repressed all forms of opposition to his regime, and before the Iraq War, al Qaeda had no presence in Iraq.
Peter Bergen
I worked on congressional campaigns when I was a teenager. I did United Way fundraisers when I was a teen. We advocated; we spoke out. I protested the first Iraq War in college.
Peter Paige
Tell the lie over and over and over. It’s an art that Trump understands well. There’s no better evidence than his absolutely false claim that he opposed the Iraq War in 2002.
Pamela Meyer
I think that my darkest moment was the Iraq war and the fact that we could not stop it.
Kofi Annan
Desertion is the army’s dirty little secret. Since the beginning of the Iraq war, more than 20,000 American soldiers have given up the fight. Most of them disappear while at home on leave, fading into a network of family and friends, and the army does not typically chase them down.
Wil S. Hylton
For me, there is nothing that encapsulates both our misguided response to the attacks of September 11th and the entire Iraq war itself more than a sense of lost opportunity.

Peter Bergen
I think the Iraq War is not particularly tailored to American interests.
Peter Brimelow
I joined the army after 9/11, after the Iraq war was started. I joined in part because I wanted to go fight on the front lines.
Tom Cotton
I remember Congressman Conyers voting against the PATRIOT Act, voting against the Iraq War when it was unpopular to. That tremendous amount of courage that comes with that kind of leadership, I mean, that’s what we need.
Rashida Tlaib
Trump’s opinions on the Iraq War have been as erratic as his opinions on other foreign policy matters – such as his careless position to think more countries should acquire nuclear weapons.
David Brock
In the lead up to the Iraq war and its later conduct, I saw at a minimum, true dereliction, negligence and irresponsibility, at worse, lying, incompetence and corruption.
Anthony Zinni
The Iraq War. No one took to the streets over it. It certainly would have been appropriate. If anybody even hinted we should… you were called un-American and not supporting the troops.
Hank Azaria
According to various polls conducted, the single most important issue in last week’s election was not the Iraq War, not the War on Terror, not even the economy. It was the cultural war.

One of the lessons of Vietnam, which we failed to heed in the Iraq war and the Afghanistan surge, is that before you commit U.S. military forces to aid or assist, it is essential to know what you want them to achieve.
Kathleen Troia McFarland
Whatever one wants to say about the conduct of the Iraq War, going to war to remove Saddam Hussein in 2003 was a necessary act. It should and could have been done earlier, had not the Clinton White House, which understood the need, not wasted the opportunity through timidity and bluster.
Arthur L. Herman
The Iraq war was not necessary.
Scott McClellan
As Michael Scheuer, who ran the C.I.A.’s bin Laden unit until 1999, has pointed out, if bin Laden believed in Christmas, the Iraq war would be his perfect present from Santa Claus. The 9/11 attacks and the subsequent war in Afghanistan severely damaged bin Laden’s organization.
