    Re: Is the world a better place without Saddam Hussein?

    There can be no question that a world without Saddam, Uday and whasisface (other son) is unquestionably a brighter place to some significant degree.


    It is simply inarguable that he was a rotten bastard, a horrifically tyrannical despot, and at least a potential threat to the security of his neighbors. Not to mention genocidal towards the Kurds.


    Whether the war itself was worth it is going to depend on larger issues, though... issues that will not be easily answered today, this year, or next year. The question will be whether something better than Saddam grows to fill that hole left in his absence.

    I hope it will be so. We'll see, over time.

    Do you remember the Iraqis coming out of the voting booths with their fingers stained with ink showing that for the first time in modern history they voted to elect their leaders? I saw a very proud and happy people that day that had nothing to do with nation building..

    Had U.S. Forces not been involved, those elections may never have taken place. How many bombings occurred in and around Baghdad today?

    I think Qusay (sp?) only watched. He was "the smart one," wasn't he? The one who didn't torture Olympic athletes?

    No its not stable no where near stable. Its categorized as a failed state. It still suffers sectarian violence and some say the civil war is still going on to this day. When Saddam was in power not a single terrorist attack happened in Iraq today its averaging one a day.
