Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"Suppose, after months of combing Hussein's hideouts and all the other nooks and crannies throughout Iraq, coalition forces never find a single WMD. Even if none come to light, the war to remove Hussein would still be legitimate. What is important from the perspective of international law is not whether Iraq had WMD in the end. What matters is whether, at the time of the invasion, it appeared reasonably necessary to defend against Iraq's threat to U.S. national and international security."
