well....probably end up with heated talks so i thought i would save the mods time by posting here
Probably not. None of our business, though.
I honestly don't give a fuck how they would be, as long as we left them alone and they left us alone.
jillian...why do you say that? saddam TORTURED his own people....
interesting, jillian wants to prosecute americans, bush as well, for alleged torture, but she wants saddam in power knowing full well the massive torture committed by him....
typical libs, ignore the evil of other countries and believe other countries over this country....but holy lord if a republican is thought to have done something, off with their heads!
It's speculation. Iraqis have undergone a tremendous social upheaval. Scores of thousands have died and many more injured. The social fabric, weak to begin with, has been ripped apart. Religious tensions are higher. On the other hand, they don't have a dictator. For now.
You could make a stronger argument that the US would be better off had it not invaded Iraq.
my point was that i knew at least one liberal that would post that iraq would be better off with saddam, i've heard numerous libs make that argument and i think it is laughable given how they wanted to oust bush/cheney over torture but want saddam in power despite his countless, horrific tortures.
seems liberals support saddam, but not an american president
I don't know about Iraq, but the Middle East from a strategic standpoint was better off with Saddam in power. He sat in between the Shia from the East and the Sunni from the West and nobody trusted him.
He kept the Middle East un-unified and off-balance.
The difference is that Saddam was not our leader. The American people can hold the President and Congress accountable but they have no way to hold a foreign leader accountable. That was the Iraqis problem to solve, not ours.
I think Iraq was better off...and I also so think we were also better off with Saddam in power, as much of a prick that he was.
Incorrect. Iraq was our problem to solve because of defense agreements our governments made with other nations. Since we were footing the bill to babysit him for 12+ years, and we were the ones doing the babysitting, it was OUR problem.
