Hindsight is 20/10

Scott Malensek penned an excellent post, pulling together a lot of the great research he's done since the toppling of Saddam's regime.

Time will tell, 50 years from now, whether or not the decision to remove Saddam from power by force will result in a direct ripple effect of creating and influencing a better and safer world. I believe it will.

Based upon what we knew then, the irresponsible course of action would have been inaction and the status quo; based upon what we know now, Saddam would be an even greater danger today, than he was in 2003.

Agreed, Democrats believed when they thought it was PC. Then when they saw an opportunity to attack Bush with it, they shifted their view to gain political capitol with the left!

I continue to believe that history will reflect well on the Iraq War and the attempt at changing the Middle East. I am disappointed that so many poor decisions were made before Gen. Petraeus took over but such is life.

My husband was in Iraq on business just before the war began. He came back saying 'we have to help those people'. He was taken under the wing of a Christian family there who had him into their home for a family dinner and birthday party when the Iraqis at his hotel were too afraid to speak to him. He was the only American at the hotel and they were sure he was CIA.

When you can put a face on the people, it makes the decision to help them so much easier. And, yeah, Saddam gone is so much better. Some are still in touch with my husband occassionally thru email and that's good. I force myself to remain an optimist.
