Iraq: the Aftermath

So not only do we now have Rumsfeld saying that there may not have been any weapons of mass destruction at the start of the war but, unsurprisingly, it turns out that the Iraq document that Blair presented to the Commons, was ever so slightly spun, and the security services are still rather upset that their information has been ever so slightly stretched.
In other words, all the reasons for having this war are tumbling down. OK – we removed a hideous dictator, but there are plenty more of them around.
Would someone please remind me why we went into this war in the first place?
