You win the moronic moral equivalence award.
Oh thanks, I had been hoping for that.
However, we could only claim "moral equivalence" if Iraq had invaded our country without provocation, established an occupation, murdered 100,000 civilians, deposed our rulers, replaced our system of governement, etc etc.
So sorry, no equivalence. Not remotely close.
Has your head been buried in the sand for 20 years?
-The Baathist regime was in multiple violations of several chapter 7 UN resolutions.
-A low scale war with two no fly zones were required to protect 2/3s of the Iraqi population from 1991-2003
-Economic sanctions were being applied for that entire time period.
-Saddam Hussein gave refuge and money to terrorists.
In fact in the late 90's he said he'd help Bin Laden.
-Saddam baathists tried to assassinate a former US President
-The Baathists invaded two countries and threatened several others.
-Saddam's regime practiced genocide
-Numerous mass Graves have been dug up (hundreds of thousands of bodies are supposedly in them)
If you think Saddam was no threat you're truly ignorant.
BTW, the Lancet has been heavily questioned and it never said the US "murdered" anyone.
