: xxx If the masses do not like their ruler, then they should depose him, themselves. The sanctions have basically left the masses unable to do this, so the *best* way to let the people of Iraq, if they so desire, to depose their ruler is to have the sanctions lifted, which would allow them to recuperate economically, physically, etc. It's disgusting, this notion that Iraqis have no brains & no strength to do what is good for them, so the US military has to do it for them, help them b/c they are weak
>>Unfortunately, the Batheys in Iraq run the State so incredibly tightly, they would have had no chance at all even if there WERE no sanctions. Anyone who's tried is dead; the Iraqi coalition nominally doesn't want America to strike, they just want 'air-cover' while they go in with pea- (pee-?) shooters. Yeah right, gimme a break. Did you se Albert Yalda on BBC's hard talk? He repeatedly side swiped the answer of whether he wants America to strike Iraq: he just said 'we should have all your technology and air-cover while we go in'!!
Iraqi's couldn't oust him before and they couldn't do it now. Sorry.
