Afghanistan was a justified war, we were after Bin Laden and we knew, at the time, that he was there. Iraq, on the other hand, we had no legitimate reason to be there, and while it may have seemed like at least a benefit to get rid of Saddam, fact was he was the only one keeping the place from turning into a perpetual state of civil war and chaos that could allow extremists to take over. And the only thing worse than a supporter of extremists being in control of a country, is extremists themselves. Not to mention the sheer amount of money we've wasted there, can't forget about that.
