Iraq - The liberation of 2003

Iraq was liberated from Saddam Hussein in 2003, thanks to the US and its allies. The genocidal monster was deposed and executed, thanks to the US and its allies. His regime was destroyed. 2003 was a great year for the world, a moment of hope for all peoples suffering under tyrannies across the world.

Tragically, though, the forces of evil (totalitarianism, jihad and genocide) fought back after 2003. They refused to stop killing. They refused to allow the Iraqis live in peace and freedom.

The western left, which opposed the liberation of Iraq from Saddam, said that Iraq should be abandoned to these people. They said, in effect, that if evil fights back, evil should win.

The western left won the day. Obama abandoned Iraq to the jihad and ISIS.

Before the war


The reasons for the Iraq war

The fact that Iraq had in the past a nuclear weapons program, and was assumed to still have one, was one of the main reasons for war, but not the only one.

The "anti-war" demos of Feb 2003 (before the invasion of Iraq)

The "anti-war" protesters say: Don't do anything. Never do anything. Leave tyrants to do what they like. And then we are innocent. We have no blood on our hands. It's seductive. I just don't know if it is moral.

The liberation of 2003


Wrong, wrong, wrong

Wrong again. Wrong before. The "peace" marches were wrong, wrong, wrong. Proved wrong, proved immoral, within weeks of happening.

The Iraqi people wanted liberation. The Iraqi people supported the war. They yearned for the freedom we live in.

The liberation was a brilliant success. In only a few weeks, Saddam's barbaric regime was destroyed. There were few innocent casualties. It was a triumph by any historical standard. Iraq was liberated. Uday and Qusay were killed. Saddam was captured and executed. Every dictator in the world was nervous. 2003 was truly a year of hope.



The western media were wrong


The BBC were wrong

During the Iraq War, the BBC were nicknamed the "Baathist Broadcasting Corporation" by pro-war bloggers. Like RTE in Ireland, the taxpayer in Britain is forced to pay for a centre-left, anti-American, anti-Israeli station.

France was wrong


The Arab world was wrong

The Arab world's shameful record on Iraq:

Iraq is free, Apr 2003



The West wins again

After being forced to listen to weeks of panicking ignoramuses in the Irish and British media, it is a breath of cold reality to read Victor Davis Hanson's columns for March and April 2003 and understand what happened during the Iraq war, and why the Allies won.

The war was fast, easy and a stunning success. The Iraq war is "The greatest triumph of American policy since the end of the Cold War" in 1989. And the greatest military victory of the West since the end of World War Two in 1945.

The Iraqi "resistance" (separate page)







One standard for Bush, another for Hollande:
Here, in Jan 2013, France liberates Mali from jihadist terrorists.
Hollande did exactly what Chirac condemned Bush for in 2003.
France ignored the UN, invaded, and were welcomed as liberators.




Charles Johnson (back when he was good) on the liberation of Iraq:
"This is a truly historic moment, LGF readers. To the naked protesters, the Hollywood whiners, the Indymedia haters, the BBC and CNN and MSNBC and Al Jazeera and Arab News: This moment is IN OUR NAME. Those who sought to keep the Iraqi people in their living hell, who stood in the way of their liberation, and insisted that the US and Britain and Australia and our many other partners had no right to take action to defend both the Iraqis and ourselves: This was NOT IN YOUR NAME. And we won't forget where you stood, in your ignorance and fashion-driven hatred of America. We won't forget."



Return to Iraq.
