Step 1: Liberate Iraq from a dictator to establish democracy.
Step 2: Occupy the country for another 17 years.
Step 3: The now long-established democratic parliament votes to send your military home.
Step 4: "THIS IS NOT WHAT WE MEANT BY DEMOCRACY. SUBMIT TO OUR DICTATE OR WE'LL SANCTION YOU!"
I find it utterly absurd that a lot of people actually still believe the bullshit propaganda about wars being fought over "human rights" or "democracy". Like, flat-earth level absurd.
