    So, the United States assassinates Saddam. Then what?

    All the problems go away?

    I doubt very, very seriously that there will be war with Iran, for the simple reason that the task is beyond our strength.

    or course all problem don't go away.....a .50BMG is a big ass bullet, but it's not a silver bullet.

    don't bother trying to convince me that tyranny is preferable... it won't work.

    we shall see.... I don't put it past Obama to pull that trigger...he hasn't shied away from using military force since he's been in office, i don't think he shy away from that one.

    Of course the world is a better place without the Baathists in power. There's just the teeny weeny question of the bloody freaking COST of this improvement.

    Yes, absolutely the world is better off without Saddam Hussein. However, on the scale of good-better-best, would it have been BEST if Saddam Hussein had never been the dictator of Iraq in the first place? I more emphatically say yes but sadly our economic survival depended upon access to the world's major oil reserves due to oil's exclusive grip on personal and commercial transportation in the US with a heck of a lot of deliberate suppression of alternative competitors to oil in the interest of ensuring the continued high profits realized by oil interests. That survival included convert support for brutal regimes that did not share our values as well as cleaver public relations campaigns crafted to ignore the connection between oil and the tragic geo-political history and consequences brought about by the oil monopoly, its toll in human suffering and death at home and abroad, painting a false picture that any and all alternatives to oil are now and will always be inferior until the last drop of oil is drilled from the ground and those who advocate for other options and trying to destroy the US economy and/or are closet communists/socialists.

    Saddam himself was executing terrorist attacks.

    There is the cost to consider, however, I think that when you have a government mass murdering it's people the cost is justified in removing that government. I won't argue that the war was poorly executed, but it was the right thing to do.
