What are America's moral obligations in Iraq?
What really is the main purpose we are there now? Is it just to serve and protect the so-called freedoms and liberties their state has now given to them and help rebuild what we unjustly destroyed? Why are we still there?

Our obligation is to help them learn to stand up for themselves while protecting them from their possibly hostile neighbors.
This is a hostile region. Iraq and Iran were at war with each other for a good number of years before the Iraqis invaded Kuwait. Plus there is tension with Israel, there are problems in nearby Somalia and Afghanistan is still pretty much in the same region.
We destroyed the Military capability of Iraq. That means they can not defend themselves very well. It would be the same mistake we made at the end of WWI and the same mistake we made at the end of the 1st Gulf War if we did not stay till they stabilize and can defend themselves. Anything less would be immoral.
I don't agree with you on the matter of wether or not it was just but I am not going to try to change your mind on that one.

These poeple lived under tyrannical rule for 30 years. Our obligation is to help them to overcome their fears and to help them stand up for themselves and create a better country for their children.
