    I think the better question to ask is "Is the US in a better position on the world stage because we did away with Saddam Hussein on false pretenses?"
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    There were bigger fish to fry then Saddam. Add to that our governments deception and cover ups as to the reason we went to war makes the the whole situation just a tad worse.

    But, you're use of "Saddam supporters" to anyone who said that the world was not a better place without Saddam is classic? Did Saddam deserve thousands of Americans dead, thousands and thousands of civilians dead, and trillions of dollars?

    No.
    if we can do it on the cheap, i'm all for taking out tyrants all over the world.... the bigger the fish, the better.

    Saddam deserved nothing but his death... and thankfully, he lived long enough to know his sons were taken out too...I hope it was painful for him.

    Was Saddam worth thousands of Americans dead, thousands and thousands of civilians dead, and trillions in dollars spent?

    go back and read the poll question...

    "Is the world a better place without Saddam Hussein?"

    your answer... No.
    I still don't think the world is better off with him gone, He was the enemy of our enemy (Iran) and now that Saddam is gone Iran has become more belligerent,

    The world is a better place when we get rid of monsters like Saddam. Having said that I am beginning to wonder about the Arab world and if they need monsters to keep some form of order in that culture. I truly hate saying that but I honestly wonder.
