Kathleen A asked:

When the history of this time is written - do you think historians will acknowledge that a horrible dictator was removed, freeing the Iraqi people? Or do you think this important point will always be lost on those hell-bent on ignoring the GOOD and only highlighting the bad?

Ali: I think no one would be able to deny or ignore that a horrible dictator was removed and I trust that history will judge those who opposed Iraq freedom very harshly just as it will honor all those who worked to free Iraq.

Bismillah

Ask yourself, was it only for the removal of a horrible dictator?

And if so, why weren't the rest of the horrible dictators in the world removed as well?

When the removal of a horrible dictator is not cheered, but instead questioned, why is that?  At the least, people of goodwill, while perhaps questioning the absolute purity of an event (that is certainly your prerogative) can at the least cheer the good results.  Right?
I think knowing that the mass graves are gone is extremely important and is something to cheer, despite all cynicism.

There is a process that the world community goes through regarding all such 'horrible dictators.'  The UN is more or less able to act but often restrains actions as was seen in the Rwandan massacre, Iraq and elsewhere.  How many UN violations had Iraq amassed since its brutal and illegal invasion of Kuwait in 1991?  There were at least 16 violations to my knowledge. 

That said about the UN, the international community of civilized nations and peoples is far from perfect and the UN is one vehicle that we all have.

Mockba, please, do not pose such difficult questions.

Have you ever seen a killer ever stand up and not justify his crime with a hundred excuses? What is it called? I would rather not mention that particular term. (Just wish to stay on this forum a while longer)

And, please, always remember when Americans are around that the US has never made any mistakes (forget about the crimes against humanity) in her entire history.

And, please, never even breathe about the UN resolutions tossed away by Israel with US support. Or, of those vetoed by the US. Also remember that good old Greek saying; "When gods decide to destroy a people, they begin by ceasing their powers of reasoning". Please just think of that when any Americans refuse to see anything beyond their confines of arrogance.

Just smile and ignore them!!!

Are you Sasha, calling me a killer and a criminal or using it metaphorically to describe me?  Wow, aren't you clever?  Care to explain yourself at all?
