    Kraut IMO made a pretty good argument based on exactly that point that Iraq would have been doing what it had been doing already,

    That being that what Iraq was doing was plenty horrible on its own, and that Bush and co could have made an argument for US involvement just on the merits of stopping a genocidal dictator. The question with no answer is if the public would have accepted that argument for going into Iraq at the same time as Afghanistan.

      The war was illegal and justified by WMDs that weren’t there.
