I don't know how the Iraq war started, but this is the most plausible explanation so far.

Why See Baghdaddy?

Musical comedy Baghdaddy makes a welcome return off-Broadway this April for a strictly limited run at St Luke's Theatre. First staged in 2015, most of the show's originating cast will return for this revival, including Brennan Caldwell, Jason Collins, Bob D'Haene, Brandon Espinoza, Joe Joseph, Olli Haaskivi, Claire Neumann and Larisa Oleynik. Starting out in a deserted church basement, the show takes on the appearance of a support group, with those attending all in some way responsible for starting the Iraq War. Sparks will fly, and realizations borne out of confrontation!

Originally titled Who's Your Baghdaddy?, the support group that includes spies, detractors and you, the poor audience, the action moves swiftly Frankfurt Airport, where where a mysterious Iraqi scientist and defector claims that he is responsible for building secret bio-weapons laboratories for the Hussein regime. Shift again to Langley, VI At CIA headquarters, where the disgraced former spies are struggling to deal with their dramatic fall from grace following the "fake dossier" news. When a fax arrives from Germany telling of this mysterious scientist, it's a race to get the facts and into action, so they can redeem themselves to their bosses and head back to the top of the spying game! However, this is only possible if this man is who he says he is. And something else is looming large on the horizon...
