    (And I only have a rudimentary knowledge of the Middle East).

    Saddam had nothing to do with AQ.  Why would he want that trouble within his borders?  It's not a coincidence their training bases were relegated to some of the most barren and inhospitable places on earth (yes, worse than the Iraq desert).

    Saddam was many things, but he was not stupid.  He was not allies with AQ, and he needed to act big and bad at all times to keep Iran at bay.  Iran's not so easy to deal with, are they?  They are a dangerous and royal pain in the ass, and we are finding that out for ourselves, and we are now fucking stuck with them.

    How could anyone with a modicum of intelligence, NOT predict the rise of Iran in the aftermath of Saddam's defeat?

    We defeated the enemy of our true enemies, in an epic pathetic blunderous move of idiocy and deceit:  criminal in its ignorance, if nothing more.
