    It's why sanctions didn't hurt Saddam.

    They only hurt Iraqis.

      pgrote:

      I don't have time to read this right now, but let me guess: This is an article about corrupt government "leaders" out to enrich and empower themselves at the expense of their citizens, all while mouthing pleasant-sounding promises of something for nothing.

      I refuse the believe this.

          And US intelligence wasn't aware of that?
          Norman Chad, syndicated columnist: “Sports radio, reflecting our sinking culture, spends entire days advising managers and coaches, berating managers and coaches, firing managers and coaches and searching the countryside for better middle relievers. If they just redirected their energy toward, say, crosswalk-signal maintenance, America would be 2 percent more livable.”

          "The best argument against democracy," someone (Churchill?) said, "is a five minute conversation with the average voter."

            Yes nick they were.

            That is why we could not accept sanctions any longer, and decided immediate action was best for all involved.
