    Let's include a few factors, like the number killed in genocide, the number killed in mass slaughters and the time frame of brutal oppression. Of course, in none of those states was rape institutionalized.

    Sarin attacks against Iran? Is that not considered a human rights abuse? Exclusive: CIA Files Prove America Helped Saddam as He Gassed Iran

    So its really not about "human rights"... Lets be honest, the reason we were given to invade Iraq was not "human rights", it was he was building up his WMD capability, he was a direct threat to us, and was helping Al-Qaeda all turned out to be false. If we really were all about "overthrowing regimes that committed human rights abuses" we would be in a **** ton of countries right now.

    The US provided no weapons. Intel provision is a matter of diplomacy and geopolitical interests.

    Seems any time Obama is mentioned in the same sentence as Iraq, bush is brought up. News flash...Obama has been there for 6 years in the hot seat. Bush was there for 8. Maybe the rose colored glasses can be taken off and we can look at it like it is??? Obama's foreign policy with Iraq is a joke. Accept it. He has been indecisive. Pick a course and go at this point.

    Bush invaded Iraq in the first place. THAT'S WHY. With the full-throated support of much of conservative America, I might add.

    We provided him with the intelligence and the areas to attack, knowing he would use chemical weapons.
