Saddam would have been an ally against Iran. The stupidity here is breathtaking. There is a large faction that has been in control of the Iranian government since the 1970's that are nothing more than the Shiite version of Osama's Wahhabism. When they call us "The Great Satan", they mean it, and going to war with Satan ensures their martyrdom/ Their hatred for us is unlimited. Soon they will have missles to go with their nukes. These people are not a bunch of desert camp dwellers, this is an industrially sophisticated country capable of being as much a threat to us as the Japanese were. This country should simply not be allowed to possess nuclear weapons until it becomes rational. I just don't get you Bot, you want war with countries that are not a threat, and question a real country with WMDs that really is "a gathering danger". The insanity of the right in this country is astounding.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
