It reflects on the real issue in the war in Iraq raised by U.S. President George W. Bush in his Address to the Nation. It argues that the real issue was with Iran and Syria which allow terrorists and insurgents to use their territory to move in and out of Iraq. It contends that the war failed to bring liberty to Iraq and destroyed the Iraqis' way of life.
