    Why is that?

    Having spent many days over a decade of time deploying to enforce no fly zones over Iraq because he attacked civilians (used poison gas on at least one village) because of "religious" differences. I was glad we finally went ahead and took the bastard out. He was, undoubtedly evil. I don't in anyway consider Iraq unecessary, just way too late in coming. Maybe it's the fact that he on occasion over that decade long span shot at myself and others doing our jobs that made it personal. All because we wouldn't let him gas his own people or bomb civilians.

    If it was to kill a bad guy who was persecuting his people, we should have invaded North Korea. Saddam didn't have **** on Jong Il's reign of terror. People get put into concentration camps for eating the wrong bowl of rice over there, regardless of their beliefs.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I agree, but I don't get to make the decisions. I really didn't give a damn what made the politicians finally make the right decision, even if it was for wrong reasons, I just knew I was helping take out one evil bastard and that was all that mattered to me, still all that matters to me about the initial invasion.

    I would totally support taking out NK. If they would let me, I would definitly go (unfortunately, I was ordered into permanent retirement due to medical reasons). I have also spent a lot of time keeping an eye on those evil bastards too.

    I don't believe the ends justified the means at all. Over a million deaths, just to topple a crooked regime. I can't get behind such an inefficient wast of life, even though I was fully prepared to go. The Army had other plans for me, though.

    Was saddam evil when we supported him in the war against Iran, or did he become evil later?

    Why were you in that position? Was there no jobs where you were? Was it lack of skills to get a better job?

    He was always evil since taking power. Unfortunately, for the last 2+ decades we have had to deal with very poor choices of "allies" during the cold war. We should of never supported dictatorships, oppressive governments or pretty much anyone who did not at least share some of our values. We were wrong to support him, the shaw, the Mujahadeen (sp), Pakistan, Noriega, Marcos, some of the south Korean leaders that were in power at different times, Castro, the Sandanistas, Saudi Arrabia, the South Vietnamese Government, etc, etc. Pretty much anyone who did not share core values of human rights, democracy, freedom of religion or other freedoms valued by Americans.

    It wasn't me. I was a kid at the time. My mom (unmarried) lost her job and had a hard time getting a new one immediately. She searched for 2-3 months before she just decided to work at my grandmother's restaurant. After those 3 months, we never received welfare again.
