“humanitarian reasons.”

People have forgotten the INCREDIBLE Human Rights Abuses of Saddam’s Regime.

Also the WMD (Poison Gas) attacks on Shia, Kurdish, and dissenting people groups. (also during the Iraq-Iran War)

Not to metion the 17 UN Resolutions that Saddan defied.

Or the constant violations of the No-Fly Zone.

Or the Government PLOT to Assassinate a Former American President

Or the probable link to the Oklahoma City Bombing

Or the MASSIVE Environmental Carbon Footprint and major pollution of the atmosphere and the Persian Gulf after Gulf War I.

Not to mention the rape, torture, and brutalization of Iraq’s citizens,

AND the simple fact that EVERYONE, including the LIBERALS in Congress, believed that Saddam had WMD. (and I think he did. They are probably in Syria now)

But those are just pesky facts.

If Saddam were still there we'd have a massive arms race going between Iran & Iraq. What would have been the cost of that? What is the cost when sworn enemies share a border and are willing to use WMD's on each other?

I'm sick and tired of these idiots saying that going into Iraq was wrong, etc. That move by Bush was the smartest decision he made. We're in an excellent military position to take action on Iran (if anyone had the 'nads to do it) and no longer have to worry about a nuclear Iraq. BIG, BIG WIN for the US & the west despite the huge political cost to Bush.
