We were better off with Saddam as dictator. I so regret supporting that G**-damned war there.
Yup! At least he kept everybody in line. We could have bought him off and kept him in place.
For the next twelve years his own people continued to fear him more than they feared us; it should not have been left that way.
It was a hard judgment call to make, I don’t beat myself up over supporting the war.
I blame all of this Anti-American garbage from the new Iraqi state on the Bush Administration’s failure with the CPA and occupation, and Congress allowing Iran to replace us in influence.
None of us thought that Washington would do everything to cause an insurgency out of fear of an insurgency, and we were wrong.
I agree, and so does my stepson who served as a tank driver in Iraqi Freedom. The only thing these ragheads understand is brute force, and we were much better off leaving the secular dictators in place and letting them kill each other off.
I may be crazy but I think Obama is actually an enemy within the gates, with evil intent to destroy the USA
I supported the war there, for a few reasons. One is that we could end up with an American-friendly in the middle of the middle east. Another is the hope that we'd have permanent military bases there to keep the peace in that region. I never envisioned we'd simply pull all out. What was the point? Spend billions to kill a guy?
I'm coming around to the idea that we should have claimed our spoils, the oil fields, while we were there.
