The U.S. government's excuse to keep on bombing & to justify occupation of Iraq is that they're hunting for Saddam.... How long have they been hunting for Osama? How long will they continue to "hunt" for Osama or Saddam??? Unlike Osama, Saddam's ineffectual once he leaves Iraq because his followers were afraid of him, not in love with him. Maybe a couple of people may have liked him, but they are no match for the millions of people who don't like him. All that should count is that Saddam be made unable to manipulate anyone. If the U.S. government wants to keep him ineffectual, they should just freeze his bank accounts - killing or jailing him is not necessary... esp. when it comes at such a huge human cost. Plus, even if the U.S. government wanted to jail or kill him, it doesn't mean they'd have to use bombs to do it.... It's like using a shotgun to cure a headache.
