GW Bush argues Iraqis better off without Saddam

I wish his father had made that decision in 1991.

"The 64-year-old former president defends his decision to invade Iraq in his autobiography, which was obtained in advance by the New York Times.

He argues that Iraqi citizens are better off without the former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, whom he calls a "homicidal dictator", adding the US is also better off without a Mr Hussein pursuing biological or chemical weapons.

But Mr Bush admits that he was shocked when no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq."

It's hard to believe some boneheads still argue Iraqi's were better off WITH Sadman Insane. I never cared whether there were WMD's. My feeling was always that the world would be better off without the murderous asshole. And that Iraqi's would be MUCH better off. It's a shame it takes more justification than that to remove a tyrant.

Pity about all the mountains of dead Iraqis that the invasion created, eh? But then, dead Iraqis don't count, do they?

Acctually Bruno,Saddam, AQ and friends created mountains of dead Iraqis. Wise up...

Finally he admits. A little too late now, you have already murdered 100,000 people over this mistake ← ooop, it wasn't really a mistake but a deliberate lie that you went along with

☼ Sadman Insane ☼

Witty nickname. When those killings were taking place in 1980, most Americans thought Iraq was an asteroid.

So I don't believe that your 2003 aggression was motivated by your grief from 25 years back.
Your grief for Moqteda Sadr's father-in-law no less.

What a garbage excuse. Why don't you tell the truth

We leave people alone, when they leave us alone. We're civilized; unlike yourself.

Bullshit, you lying fucker. Iraq never did anything to America, yet America invaded it anyway. You deserve everything the Iraqis gave to you.

Neither did I. Saddam Hussein was a weapon of mass destruction himself. The world worries so much about WMD's, but tends to look away from the old-fashioned way of mass murdering innocent people, like in Rwanda...which was done almost entirely with machetes and AK-47's. Saddam Hussein was an enemy of humanity with or without them.

Milosevic never did anything to America either...and he wasn't even half the monster that Saddam was.

comments like this prove saddam was right to kill people like you.

C.H. makes a good case for a pre-emptive strike against America. Well done, CH.

"comments like this prove saddam was right to kill people like you."

Comments like what, anonymous hmar? Saddam killed 300,000 Iraqis after the Americans invaded and left him and his Tikriti mafia in power. I wish they'd gone to Baghdad and Tikrit and arrested the mass murderers of Iraqis and put them on trial before they could mass murder 300,000 Iraqis. It would have been good of the Americans to do that, since they had already destroyed the country. Of course I wanted to see the end of that horrible regime.

So don't be surprised ya 3arab jarab, ya munafiqeen ya mujrimeen, when Iraqis tell you Saddam shoulda been overthrown in 1991.

Dolly said...

I really would cast doubt on those figures. I mean 300,000 → come on.

Secondly, and I'm not a history buff, my guess is that Shiites launched an attack on the state and only then was the uprising crushed.

I mean you make it sound like the fighting took place purely for entertainment; whereas you actually initiated TERRORIST action.

By February 1991, Sadman Insane had plunged Iraq into two devastating wars that cost hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives, and then he'd killed, imprisoned, and expelled hundreds of thousands more Iraqis. Halabja was just a an example. By March 1991, the death of saddam's regime was high time and should have happened. Even your beloved Usama bin Ladin offered to fight saddam back then.

Had my parents not decided to flee Iraq in 1982, my father would have likely suffered the same fate that his best friend, an educated Sunni Arab, did in 1982--murder at the hands of saddam, for speaking out against them, and not even publicly.

Saddam ruined Iraq. Most Iraqis who lived in Iraq in the 60s and 70s know this.

Correction: my father's best friend, who was vice minister of oil, was murdered in 1985. His son was murdered in 1988.

That 300,000 figure came from an Iraqi official. Watch Michael Wood's documentary "saddam's killing fields".
