It was a cold and calculated lie. All of those things you see on the media is merely just a smoke screen and a cover story they issued, because they had to.
The real main reason behind it is because of the Petrodollar system.
Watch the video and you will understand.
As long as the world needs oil, and as long as oil is "only" sold in U. S. dollars, there will be a demand for dollars, and that demand is what gives the dollar its value. However, if any nation changed their oil transactions to something else, and in the case of Iraq, Saddam did changed his oil transactions to Euros back in September of 2000, it would disrupt the value of the US dollar, and because the US dollar is not backed by gold anymore, they cannot allow him to continue to sell his oil for Euros or any other kind of transactions:
After the invasion occurred, they eventually switched the oil transactions back to dollars instead of euros. But then the same shit happened with Iran, they eventually stopped accepting US dollars for their oil, and the same goes for Libya. That's why US had to invade them or they would have disrupt the entire global financial system in which the US dollar is the World Reserve Currency.1
