Truly a sick bunch of individuals. Having your country invaded must be a real bitch.
Saddam and these supporters were experts at launching wars of invasion and occupation; I guess it doesn't feel so good when it happens to you. Wonder what the penalty would have been for a Kuwaiti caught doing such a thing during Saddams short lived occupation in 91? I also wonder if they treated Kuwaitis or Iranians with a fraction of the respect The United States and its real allies do.
I can't recall anyone in recent memory, Arab or otherwise, who was responsible for killing so many Arabs in and out of his own country. Mass graves, nerve gassed children, crumbling infrastructure mixed with gilded palaces, pet lions, playboy lifestyles ... do I need to go on?
Overthrowing the mass killer and his sons was simply finishing what Saddam started in Kuwait back in 91. It should have been done then if George Bush Sr hadn't caved to pressure from the fragile coalition and a few of his advisors.
For those who obviously feel that the world was a better place with Saddam in power and the region was more stable with him, WAKE UP
! Saddam made a joke out of the UN and it's never-ending stream of resolutions. Saddam was a continuing threat to neighboring countries, the US military in those countries ensured no repeat of the 91 invasion of Kuwait.
Bin Laden and his sick followers have always been angry with the US presence in Saudi Arabia. The only way to withdraw forces from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait was to eliminate Saddam.
As bad as the situation seems at the moment and with the 24hr news coverage fueling it with their "if it bleeds it leads" approach to the story, the facts remain that Saddam is gone, US troops are on their way out of Saudi Arabia and the future is brighter for the Iraqi people than it has been for decades.
The targeting of civilian aircraft and civilian targets by a small band of Saddam supporters is intended to cause fear and to reverse the slow progress being made, nothing more. Those who support civilized society should condemn such acts and not try to justify them with suggestions that in the case of Iraq it is the United States which is "destroying other peoples way of life?" Unless of course you think Saddam and supporters way of life was wholesome.
