In a real way, we added injury to injury.

    Bottom line, your comparison is way off.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Read a list of Sadaam's crimes sometime, it's very unpleasant.

    Also, Iraq's ally did attack us:

Iran has a much longer track record supporting violence and terrorism against Sunni's than it does against the west. It supplied arms and people for the Shia insurgents in Iraq. It also funded Shi'ite uprisings in other Sunni led countries.

    other than it helps Iran, not much. But there was a reason we supported Saddam and others. Not a good reason that justified the support, but a reason why their being friendly is a problem.

    No, that's fiction. But don't stop on one false comparison. look at them all.
