Yes he should, because he was a secular Sunni who hated both the Saudi Wahabbists and the fundamentalist Shi'ites, kept a lid on the Kurds which is a boon to our staunch allies, the Turks, and was an effective counterweight to Iranian attempts to dominate the region.
Idiocy. Saddam was a state sponsor of international terrorism.

(It doesn't matter whom you vote for. It matters who takes office.)
If you think Saddam should still be in power you are an IDIOT. He was a mass murderer that was the current version of Hitler. You are a heartless bastard that would leave innocent women, children and elderly to his evil ways. Like to see you explain your thinking to your creator you will meet someday. Good luck with that one.

( Hold your cards close.)
Saddam was also --- and this is according to no less a liberal source than the NYT --- one year away from a nuclear bomb at the point of invasion.
Saddam would have had no compuction to using said weaponry on the USA.
9/11 would have been a mere echo.
Is that self-interested enough for you?
