: The removal of Saddam from power is a positive accomplishment in its own right for which the President deserves credit, just as he deserves credit for removing the Taliban from power in Afghanistan. But in the case of Iraq, we have suffered enormous collateral damage because of the manner in which the Administration went about the invasion. And in both cases, the aftermath has been badly mishandled.
xxx Saddam *could* have been removed by his own people had certain sanctions been lifted, etc. giving Iraqis the power & strength they needed to take matters into their own hands. Bush doesn't know what's best for Iraqis any better than he knows what's best for Americans.
