Good question. Most likely not. Kind of makes you wonder if it was done on purpose. "Overthrowing Saddam to Help Islam Usher in The 12th Imam" by George Bush. Makes for a great title.
No because Saddam had a secular regime and hated extremist groups such as Al Qaeda. He would've put his foot so far up their asses it wouldn't even have been funny. There would be no ISIS whatsoever.
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
Here's a better and more relevant question.
Would ISIS exist if Obama had not pulled every last remnant of American Military personnel out of Iraq ?
You mean the wonderful Saddam Hussein, pro-American man of peace and human rights justice?
The poll also is worded wrongly. It should read would ISIS still control large areas of Iraq if Hussein was still in power?
ISIS isn't just in Iraq, is it? AQ, the origins of ISIS, absolutely did exist while Hussein was in power.
