      of delivering democracy with bombs and bullets. You would think the ruin and destruction your will to conquest has wrought, veiled in moral concern or not, would give you pause. It seems you have not given much thought to this or our recent history. Or do you perhaps consider the liberation of Iraq a success for the Iraqi people?

        As the son of a former slave laborer liberated from the nazis, may be I have a different perspective.
        I see you think living under Hussein was better.  I in fact wonder how many Iraqis wish he were back indeed

        You seem to have missed the fact that the war is already started. There are four possible end points.  Assad wins, rebels are massacred, jihadis win, extremist dictatorship ensues, secularists win, which may mean a democracy or another dictatorship, or a protracted civil war continues indefinitely.  Which would you think best?
