Aging, Spent Anti-War Politician Defends Iraq War?

OK, maybe not defends, but certainly counters the whole "blood for oil" poppycock...
Moreover, Russia has pointed to America’s decision to go into Iraq as an example of Western hypocrisy.  Now, it is true that the Iraq War was a subject of vigorous debate not just around the world, but in the United States as well.  I participated in that debate and I opposed our military intervention there.  But even in Iraq, America sought to work within the international system.  We did not claim or annex Iraq’s territory.  We did not grab its resources for our own gain.  Instead, we ended our war and left Iraq to its people and a fully sovereign Iraqi state that could make decisions about its own future.
 Yeah, Iraq defied numerous UN resolutions.  Remember that?
