Why did Britain and the US invade Iraq in 2003?

    Because the rest of the world cheated on sanctions imposed on Iraq following the first Gulf War and left Britain and the US policing no-fly zones and not being able to trade with Iraq. Blame Russia and France in particular for it. Weapons of Mass Destruction "able to reach Britain in 45 minutes" was the excuse used by the UK to go to war a second time.

    Britain gained nothing from it, it was just US's lapdog during the war.

    Because a guy called Saddam wouldn't sell us his oil cheap. So we bombed his refineries, stole his brothers' tankers and gave the oil contracts to American companies for the next 50 Years for free.

    Use any excuse you want - that's what happened.
