There was plenty of support for the troops but I don't believe there was a ton of support fort he actual invasion. There was hardly any ties to the terrorist that were involved in 9/11 in Iraq. There was probably more ties with Saudi Arabian and Iran then Iraq. (Bin Lauden is a Saudi and part of the Royal Family). The 'WMD' angle has been proven to be way over blown if not an outright fabrication. Dafur continues to commit genocide but I don't see any talk about 'liberating' that country. Just about any African nation is worse off then Iraq was before the war.

Well, first, Iraq and Afghanistan both harbor the terrorist group al Qaeda, which, of course, we know now, financed and organized the entire 9/11 operation. The terrorists were mostly born in Saudi Arabia, but trained in al Qaeda camps in Iraq and Afghanistan - so they directly contributed to the attacks on 9/11.

The 'WMD' intelligence was actually given to us by a foreign intel service, so it didn't come from the US. However, it came from an ally, so we trusted it - and it was faulty. Plain and simple - someone messed up, but not the US government - we just took the heat for it.

At the beginning of the war, there were 36 countries alongside the US in the initial invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. I mean, if that's support for the 'actual invasion', then I'm not sure what is...

I have no idea, I personally have not seen a change for better or worse.

I live north of Phoenix though so that may be apart of it.

There's definitely been a change... Previously, streets like Gilbert road between Broadway and Southern were covered with illegal day laborers, standing on corners, leaning on fences, milling around on sidewalks. They would crowd through parking lots on corners like Horne and Brown, frightening away patrons while police totally ignored them. Since the legislation, MUCH smaller numbers. They're still there, but only a few.
