    Saddam's killings are way down these days folks!! Only a few hundred this month!! Nothing to see here!! Just move along!!
    Again, you miss the point. No one said he wasn't bad. But waiting until he was finsihed, and then bring more death is not honorable or a justification. His people actually warned that our invasion would bring the killing back. Put aside arrogance and the need to feel good about this bad thing, and examine the facts.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Facts?!? You should have taken the mulligan on this one.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    Ron Mars is also forgetting the million and a half Iranians who died as a result of CIA William Casey's backing of Saddam in the Iran/Iraq war in the 1980's. US satellite imagery directly aided Saddams troops who repelled an Iranian assault towards Bhagdad, and would have ended the war, with Iran as the victor. As a result of US aid to Saddam the war was extended to a stalemate, and with mustard gas used on Irans civillians, causing horrible deaths.

    I think he forgets or ignores a few things.
