    Yep. Saddam was the leader of the only secular country in the region. Women were looked upon as equals. Saddam was effectively holding together a country that had been cobbled together by the British post WW-1. Saddam WAS a known quantity in the region. We knew him. We could quantify his actions.
    Now, we have nothing but a huge black hole that will eventually break off and be absorbed by Iran and Syria, the exception is Kurdistan. They seem to be doing pretty good for themselves at the moment...until the Turks pounce on them again.
    It takes time for a country to get it together after a war. Give it some time. Such negativity!

    We gave 10 years and a lot of lives and money. Sorry, I've become too old and crotchety to have much patience.

I hope you will answer that question and not drop into more annoying accented English typing. This isn't an audio medium.

    Iraqi's were killing Iraqi's before America went to Iraq.
    Iraqi's were killing Iraqi's while America was in Iraq.
    Iraqi's are killing Iraqi's since America left Iraq.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    His country wasnt in one piece and he slaughtered villagers by the thousands to accomplish his goal of conquest.

    I'm more concerned about all the lives we wasted, but we should still hope for a good outcome for the Iraqis. Your negativity certainly isn't helping anyone or anything.

    Here's a simple fact - Arabs will use any "agreement" to their own benefit. Arabs will lie for their own benefit.
    When Saddam attacked his own people, the Kurds were armed and marching marching south. They wanted US assistance to topple Saddam in '91, but we refused. Saddam used the opportunity to take out the opposition.
    Why aren't you complaining about the Turkish invasion of Iraqi Kurdistan during the same period, where the Turks razed villages of women and children?
    Try not to dislocate your shoulder while patting yourself on the back for being in the region. As was later indicated, I'm discussing the topic at hand so if you would like to start a topic on the Turks and Kurds, go ahead.

    It's sad that some people started writing this war off as an abject failure only a couple of years in. I always think it's so inconsiderate to those who've served over there. We don't know how things will look 20 or 50 years from now.
