I wouldn't exactly call China small.......GermanStar you really need to read up on military strategy...and get some common sense. 430 pretty much nailed it down. However if you look at a map of Muslim nations Iraq is very central in the Muslim world. Thus you can attempt (and we are succeeding) at destroying Muslim extremists in ONE country, rather than invading nation after nation. If we were an "American Empire" as you like to think, we would be occupying Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, and Jordan.
Iraq was strategically chosen as a place to battle Islamic extremism, why waste American lives invading country after country? Instead our leaders decided to invade and liberate Iraq, and draw in the insurgents.
