Was getting rid of Saddam worth it? An affirmative seems to be the last defense of those still supporting the inept and corrupt Bush administration.
Yes, Saddam WAS a bad man. But removing him did NOT make the world a better place, and it did NOT make Iraq a better place.
You cannot cannot cannot create a stable, long-term democracy by forcing it on a people from the outside.
It's a cultural, historical, societal process -- if it doesn't come from the "bottom up", from the will of the people, it will fail.
Iraq is a tragedy of immense proportion, and most Americans can't even wrap their minds around just how awful it is, and just how much of their blood is on our hands.
