    Yes

    Saddam was a threat to the US and his neighbors - and had to be taken out

    prioritze the threats facing us in March of '03. tell me that any sane leader would invest as much time, men and money on Iraq as Bush did.

    Let's see.... I have a gang of Hell's Angels trying to beat down my front door, my wife was cooking bacon in the kitchen and started a fire on the stove that has engulfed the kitchen, and I have termites. Time to call Terminex!

    Kim Jong Il is - and was - more of a threat to US interests than Saddam ever was.

    Damn... six months BEFORE 9/11, Colin Powell stated the following while in Egypt:

    "We had a good discussion, the Foreign Minister and I and the President and I, had a good discussion about the nature of the sanctions--the fact that the sanctions exist-- not for the purpose of hurting the Iraqi people, but for the purpose of keeping in check Saddam Hussein's ambitions toward developing weapons of mass destruction. We should constantly be reviewing our policies, constantly be looking at those sanctions to make sure that they are directed toward that purpose. That purpose is every bit as important now as it was ten years ago when we began it. And frankly they have worked. He has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbors."

    so he was LYING?

    He was a potential threat to US allies, and to US oil supplies.

    But, not a threat that rose to the level of spending a trillion taxpayer dollars, and 30,000 dead and wounded american soldiers, to invade and occupy iraq

    All that was achived in atacking iraq is give more power to iran, who are a more real threat nucler front. As well as destablizing the whole reagion. I belive the nucler threat went up in the years following the invation.
