So what would you have done? Let Saddam get away with it all?
Hell no. I would have bombed the hell out of his country until his own people overthrew him. I would followed that up with an ultimatum that if they allow Al Qaeda in or become a threat to us in any way ever again, that we will be back to level them again and that while bombing will be targeted, there will no regard for the well being or prosperity of their nation.
