Yep, I ask all the time if people think removing Saddam was the right action? Is the United States and the World safer today because of W(orst)'s delusions and Dick Cheney's rapacious war profiteering?
Grung: Ironically, right after the first Gulf War (1991), Dick Cheney gave an excellent speech explaining why it was better to leave Saddam in power -- that he was a stabilizing influence, as ruthless and despicable as he was, and that all Hell would break loose if Saddam was taken out. Twelve years later, Cheney proved himself right.And Dumbya's useful idiots conveniently forget that when Saddam Hussein "gassed his own people!!!" (their favorite soundbite), it was during and right after the Iran-Iraq war, when Saddam was our ally.No, the world is NOT safer because of Cheney's war profiteering. But on the bright side -- Halliburton and other "defense" contractors are wealthier than ever.
