This begs the question?
Was Iraq invaded to get rid of Saddam or for some other reason.
And I can not see anyway Iraq could have been invaded without getting rid of Saddam as one of the objectives of the campaign.
So either way, once the plans to invade were drawn up, Saddam's days were numbered.
What interests me is, what would you or I have done, if we can access to the level of intelligence that Bush had?
And I have to agree with both of you, Saddam was not real threat to the rest of the world. Saddam may have sabre rattled from time to time, but there
was enough US fire power in the region for Saddam to realise if he over stepped the mark, he would fire the full force of the US military fire
What we should have done if we wanted to topple Saddam from power was invest more time and money in finding an alternative leader and giving them our
full support and backup. At some stage, Iraq would have overthrow Saddam.
And just look around the rest of the world for evil and corrupt leaders.
