regardless of WMD, what about the bodies we've dug up in iraq? saddam hussein was a murdering fck and id spit on his corpse.
i would take my hat off to a dead rat, but id NEVER take my hat off to a dead saddam hussein. it absolutly SICKENS me that you people prefer saddam to bush. saddam deserves no sympathy what so ever.

All respect to your views Geniussage, but my opinion is that I don't really give a rat's crap what Saddam did to his people. We have our own problems to deal with in America, and we tend to focus on everyone else's plights in the world, except our own. We have hungry children and homeless families in this country for christ's sake. All that money used to fund the war, and I'm by far no peacenik, could have been used here. If children are living in cars, malnourished, no heat in their homes, or whatever, there's a problem. If the school's are falling apart, there's a problem.
I don't mean to sound callous.
We need to take care of our American Family first, and I mean ALL Americans, before we take care of the world's.

Let me ask you this then Morrison. If you could have the outcome of this entire situation changed, what would be? Assuming that you cannot , in your scenario, dipict that Saddam complied with the resolutions? Take a few minutes and think carefully. Would you want the 12 year status quo back in place with him still in his threatening position? Would you want to speculate of what might have happened by now given his aggresive nature on WMD projects? Are you willing to refuse any other possibility other than WMDs didn't exist just because they have not been found or were not where they were a year before the invasion? (very one-deminsional view btw) Just curious as to what you would have done differently.

I don't want the outcome of the situation changed, he is in our hands now and that is the way it should be in my opinion, since we made up our minds to go there, why not make the best of it and that is what we finally came to, capturing Saddam and now the Iraqi people will be treated the way they should be treated hopefully, and I do care about the people because if innocent defenseless people are slaughtered for a dictator's amusement and I can DO something about that, I would be doing it.

In all actuality, WMDs really aren't an issue anymore. Sure they may be on the news, but from a military stand point, they don't matter anymore. We don't base any major operations on looking for them anymore. Now it's just security, and they're gov't really.
