Around the end of 2002, Saddam was giving signals he would go into exile. I even remember reading clear as day confirmation that he WAS going to step down and go into exile.
So naturally to stop this, immediately in January of 2003 the left started holding protests until they held one massive protest world wide in February of 2003 especially in Europe.
Guess what Saddam did next? That’s right, he told the UN the US and everyone else to go to hell, that he was staying in power and doing whatever he wanted. Why not? All these protesters were against the US and GW Bush! Saddam has the whole world on his side!
Yet here we go, once again, it’s all Bushs fault. If I recall, he really didn’t have a choice. But they left did when it came to emboldening the Hitler of the middle east which they had NO qualms about doing.
