at least you spelled 'corrections' correctly. you cling to the glory of saddam with typical socialist vigor. have you written the folk songs yet ?Corrections . . . Saddam is public enemy #1 (he replaced Osama b/c we couldn't catch him either).
epic poem ? or are waiting for his martydom to really bank on his memory ? try not to overlook the facts your hero has to move about every
2 hours, does not have the services of his elite chef, and has been deprived of his snuff videos. as much as you glorify his grueling efforts to
evade our forces and his people, his time is on earth is very limited. now you have osama and saddam to root for. where do you find the time ?
no, they are not. cough.His demon seed is certainly dead but not forgotten
the ba'ath party is history. former ba'ath party members are not. the only legitimate parties are those involved in the nascent governingThe Ba'ath Party isn't history b/c Rummy himself said they were funding many of the attacks on US forces (he said that today on the
council. all former ba'ath party stooges are not welcomed, a number of whom are probably being hunted by other iraqis for obvious reasons.
and btw, since when does a pronouncement from rummy amount to manna from god ? very unusual for a mayhem cheerleader to be taking the
word of an archenemy neo-con so uncritiically. i wonder why . . . hmmmm.

oh, you mean rwanda ? rwanda was a totalitarian regime ? ? news to the world, do tell. the slaughter in rwanda was spasmodic, a paroxysm ofThe most murderous totalitarian regime of the last 25 years . . . probably somewhere between the Sudan and the Horn. You may want to
check the tally in Bosnia/Kosovo as well but I'm sure one of the African POS has Milosevic beat.
ungodly proportions. but rwanda itself had a democratically elected government (and i don't mean the 99.8% kind of election results saddam
enjoyed). there was a long prior history of ethnic enmity in rwanda that does not make this a good analogy. i can't even deem this a good try.
milosevic is better. but saddam built a police state non pareil over 3 decades that may have murdered hundreds of thousands of people.
those estimates are not mine. they are iraqi dissident figures.
you seem to remember numbers and a few names but neither in toto make a context. since we could not remain aloof in so critical a geo-politicalCuriously your 25 year horizon would put us back to 1978 . . . last time I checked the US was on pretty good terms with Saddam in the early
80s . . . we even gave him $200M in one year (1983) . . . and sent an envoy . . . what was that guy's name . . . it escapes me . . . I think it starts
with an R . . . and sorta rhymes with dumbbell.
area and the choice was between the sunny ayatollah khomeini or a cheery saddam who would you choose ? you have two evil dudes who are
willing to knock each off, much to every one else's benefit. that is a godsent interventionary scenario. khomeini, though, was threatening to overrun
his sunni neighbors with swarms of zealots. choice was fairly easy to make, although no less loaded with ethical difficulties. ignoring the problem
the ayatollah posed would not have made it go away. sorry.
as for your comments following from my second quote, you need to read my words more carefully. they all allude to the situation before the
initiation of the campaign, not after. your comments drone on and on about clarifications that you can thank the war for bringing you.
