  •  Not our problem. He wasn't a threat. (4+ / 0-)

    There are plenty of nasty dictators in the world.

    Saddam was no better and no worse.

    And - frankly - some of the worst things he was held accountable for he did with our support and/or acquiescence (i.e. when we were supporting him during the Iraq-Iran war).

    The actual threat from Al Qaeda continues, fed by the same countries which we ignored in 2002 (Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Pakistan) when we decided to spend all our post-9/11 diplomatic capital on Iraq.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. - Ayn Rand
