    Yes, the world is probably better off without Saddam, but that can be said of many others ... shall we sacrifice 4000 soldiers plus for each of them? And another 100s of 1000s civilians, among them many, many children, for each of them?

    Considering that he was a murderous tyrant, I would have to go with yes, the world is probably better off.

    An incredibly silly comparison.

    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.

    how so, do you deny Hussein was murdering people just because he felt like it? Maybe we should have let him have his growth so thousands more could have died needlessly.

    What's really funny is that a lot of you don't understand that we propped up the Hussein regime to begin with...we installed that dictatorship like many others around the world.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    Can't speak for others, but I have always been well-aware of that fact. World politics is almost never consistent or based on ethics.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Propaganda? Ok, if that is your point of view. Mine is from having deployed there several times over a decade and occasionally being shot at for our efforts. Claim the truth is propaganda all you want, but some of us do know the difference.

    Also, I believe that all people have rights, not just those born here or those who become citizens here. Mankind first, not America first. If America does not use it's power and influence to better Mankind as a whole, then it is just as evil as those it will not stop from doing evil. If you don't fight evil to the greatest extent possible, then you support and enable evil. I understand your view, as a progressive, which is a subset of socialism, which is the greatest enabler of evil that has ever existed. You do not realize how much evil is done in the name of "doing good" by socialist.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
