"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Those things by themselves were enough to do what we did, but should have only been enough to dethrone him and make sure his sons didn't take power. Period.
Not stay a few more years and build a new government and nation.

That said, both dictators had to be stopped. We have put ourselves out there as the worlds police. Once you decide to be the bad boy on the block, you cant back down.
