I agree, saddam wasnt a good person.
look at the finatical people he had to rule.
In that climate you have to be a ruthless ruler to control a finatical group. I DONT LIKE IT, but he controlled it with an iron fist.
He is no different to Nkorea, South Africa, Sudan, China the list goes on and on.
Its only more apparent to you, because the western media tells you more about HIS dealings than other dealings.
But thats not why they went into IRAQ.
there for it shouldnt be a reason for staying there now.
And if they wanted to go after him because he murdered so many of his people.. why have they not caught osama for killing thousands of your OWN
People? surely that doesnt make sense?
Saddam was a bad bad man, but he had control of the country and no one dared cause conflict in his area. which is what being a ruler/king is all
about. the US had no right what so ever to remove him from power.
especially on trumped up charges of WMD's which turned out to be lies.
I think we will have to disagree to agree maet, because I dont want this thread to die in the same ol battle of iraq right or wrong.
and I didnt complain I got the same warning as well, the ATS Mods are cracking down on that sort of behaviour which i think is a stupid move. because
it is going to KILL the spicey debate this site was known for.
we both had a weak pot shot at each other, and it DIDNT offend either of us, it just drew us more and more into the debate. I find it to be a suicidal
move that they are now penalising people for getting pasionate about a topic they believe in.
Again, if people start swearing and REALLY abusing each other fair enough, deal with them.. but when people say weak comments at each other, if
someone gets offended by such small time pot shots, they shouldnt be debating.
