    You're unsure of the impacts of 2 decades of the obliteration of social capital through the most inhumane methods utilized by a dictatorship since WWII?

    Perhaps you should take a minute and consider it.

    There are many dictators that were as bad or as worse as Saddam that are not confronting the conflict Iraq is currently.

    Dafur, Guatmala, Turkey (off the top of my head) ... Or do they have to just be under that time frame? Because if we are all about "human rights" then this is going to go nowhere..

    Because then again, we backed the Iraqi regime during many of their worst human rights abuses, and also bacekd many regimes that have pretty ****ty human rights abuses, but then again I know what you are going to say, "context" or "we must be realists" which then again shows the problem of our foreign policy...

    Do you have specific plans for how it should be done in the future ? In the parameters of this topic ?

    The first genocide was in the late '80s. The US lead international sanctions against Saddam, banning arms sales, in 1984.
