1. Iraq-reason was oil plain and simple. Unfortunately Iraq's enemy Iran has largely been main beneficiary since they are now strongest power in the region.
2. Afghanistan - Reason was 9-11 attacks. To punish Al Quaida Afghanistan was invaded, Taliban government was overthrown and a puppet government installed. bin Laden was killed in Pakistan so why are we there? One big reason is needed natural gas pipeline routes would go across the country.
Question - The total eventual cost of both wars is estimated to be $3 Trillion. Is it worth it??? Unfortunately the Afghan government will probably be overthrown about 10 minutes after we leave.
