Wouldn't it have been simpler to just bring down Saddam, and save 3200 American Lives?

Not to mention 200,000 Iraqi lives, The moral high ground of the USA and the 'bonne ami' of our Arab brothers and sisters.

    "As many as 654,965 more Iraqis may have died since hostilities began in Iraq in March 2003 than would have been expected under pre-war conditions"

    Sure, we could have armed Muqtada al-Sadr, he would have got rid of the weakened Saddam, or we could have asassinated Saddam.

    i won't have the ability to respond to this, even with the undeniable fact that i might say we only attempt to strategies our own enterprise, yet that often do no longer paintings. We the two get offered right into a conflict by employing somebody bombing some thing of ours. yet, we are the main suitable usa of the international. i think we further down Saddam by way of fact if he grow to be nevertheless loose then we would difficulty approximately what he might do next. we would desire to blame somebody. ok, i'm 27 female, fairly disillusioned approximately how the international is popping out. observed that the international is somewhat backwards and function been talked approximately in a city, the place barefoot and pregnant is going stable. I only p.c. to be someplace else, i do no longer understand if the entire international is like this. i'm getting bitter by way of fact of adult males's comments approximately females I over hear or they confirm to tell me. Which gets them in the tip a effective beating from yours rather.

    The fact of war is that you can't simply remove a government and then say "well, see yah later, good luck with all that!".

    Oh no, then your left with a handful of factions all vying for the new spot of power left open, and they'll be at each other's throats to get it. The death toll would be much higher

    LOL! Monday morning quarterbacks.

    And how exactly would we have "just brought down" Saddam without using military force? Write him a letter and ask nicely?

    The civilian death toll is not 200,000, and even if it was, blame the terrorist slime causing the mayhem there.

    I'm not against that, but I wonder how it could have been done without bringing his sons to power...

    It's against US law to assasinate foreign leaders. I think it's a bad law.

    BTW, the Arabs aren't our friends let alone family.
