Iraqis Must Choose Between Tyranny and Terrorism?

The video below was obviously shot just after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein's regime. It shows an Iraqi man using his sandal to slap a poster of Saddam and saying "he killed our youth," among other things. I noticed that a user left this comment:

'Abu Tahseen changed his mind when he experienced "freedom" and "democracy." '

I responded with this:

'Do you not realize that the hardcore Baathists and their allies want to prove to the world and especially to Iraqis that life under Saddam was much better than 'freedom' and 'democracy'? They mass murder Iraqis so that people will equate freedom & democracy with bombings and mayhem. Are Iraqis destined to be ruled (and held hostage) by tyrants and terrorists? Do people not realize that fundamentalism spreads as a result of tyranny and oppression?'
