While many people are against the war, I would like to ask a serious question "Was the Iraq War a doomed failure from the beginning, or did it have potential that was destroyed by mismanagement in Washington?" To me its hard to determine. Right after Saddam's Fall, the U.S. and coalition forces were pretty popular in IRaq. However, as security, water, and power diminished, the populace became more agitated and angry. If the administration hadn't screwed up in the beginning, would Iraq have had a chance?
