    I think you have a bit of a comprehension problem.

    when someone asks - Is the world a better place without Saddam Hussein? to say "no" is not the same thing as saying he made the world a better place.

    I don't think that HE made the place safer, but was happened has made the place less safe.

    It helps if you don't see the world in black and white ....

    You should probably read Blix's statement to the UNSC in Feb 2003 rather than asking me.

    I am sorry you feel that way. I can think of a few things your country has done that have been good.

    ignore it at your peril. the quagmire that is the ME today goes back to decisions made in the last century. Understand THOSE and you might find a way to address the current problems.

    Ignore them, and you never will.
