    Please re-read the converstaion and post i just posted.

    Saddam killed 200k Kurds in a couple years, with chemical weapons wiping out entire towns, women and children dead in the streets by the thousands. You think that's "stability"?
    Dear god
    It was a hell of a lot more stable than it is now.

    I still think you dont understand my position or argument.

    Seventeen UN Security Council Resolutions. Sanctions of unprecedented levels. Genocide TWICE. He sold food for oil, starving 400k children. He went to war with neighbors on a regular basis. He attempted and pretended to develop weapons of mass destruction to hold off the Iranians. He spent all of the country's money on henchmen and rape palaces.

    That's stable? That's sustainable?

    It seems many in the "hawkish" Iranian Intelligence agency are pushing for diplomacy over force in their talks about their nuclear program. This should defiantly be seen as a plus.
    When will you people learn? They love to talk as they advance their nuclear capabilities. Japan "talked" as they planned Pearl Harbor.

    Or you could say the USA talked after they embargoed Japan's lifeline, OIL, to force the Japanese to attack someplace.

    Compared to what's there now? Yes. The brutal dictatorship will come to an end at some point, but the government itself could be very stable. Look at all those commie countries. Very long term stable (not infinitely long of course), and horrible, brutal authoritarian assholes.

    It must be depressing constantly hating your own country.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    So the average man can not handle his own destiny?
