DaV, if Saddam was either desposed, killed, or exiled, the embargos against Iraq would drop, and a war (or the threat of war) would indirectly give them food.
I don't think the same happened in Afghanistan, despite being now a "free" nation. I think we all agree that Saddam is a threat, but not for Americans or whoever, but for his people, and I highly doubt president Bush wants a war to save thousand of Irakis he doesn't care of. Your key argument is "if Saddam was either desposed, killed, or exiled", my question is, very simply, is necessary a war to achieve this result?
Two monologues do not make a dialogue
