Iraq was essentially run like a Stalin style rather than what you see in Iran or Saudi Arabia, so again read up on your history there kid.
As to invading other Arab countries, if the neo-cons had their way that would have happened. Of course the resistance in Iraq did not help the neocons selling us into invading Syria or Iran. In addition just in case you did not know back in the seventies we had plans to invade Saudi Arabia but now it has been played down as a hypothetical scenario for some war games that "fictionally" assumes that the OPEC wanted to raise oil prices even higher up. You can see that we are geared up for such action because we can't accept the fact that those ragheads live on top of our oil and always harass our Israeli friends.
I'm not talking about the Arab world, I'm talking about the Muslim world. As the above map shows, Iraq is slightly east of the center of the Muslim World. However it is located within a relatively short distance of several of the 10 largest Muslim populated countries, Turkey, Iran, and Egypt.
And please don;t call me kid, I'm much more knowledgeable than many 16 year olds. I know Iraq was run like Stalinist Russia, the 400,00+ people in mass graves found all over Iraq and the Kurds are solid proof of that.
And you're right we're uneasy about the ragheads, any small thing supposedly "blaspheming the holy prophet" will set them off. The response to the Danish cartoons several years ago are wonderful examples of the "religion of peace". I found them to be quite funny actually. Oh and incase you didn't know, we also have plans to invade Canada if the price of maple syrup goes up. The truth is the United States has or has had plans to invade almost every country in the world. That's not imperialism, rather, that's preparing for the unexpected, it's just good military strategy.
