Saddam sounds like our ex-presidents Carter and Clinton, attempting to manipulate their legacy. To be fair Nixon also attempted this but his legacy was "obviously" damaged by resignation.
I can't fathom how the left believes we aren't correct in dealing with these nuclear wannbe's (Iraq, Iran, and North Korea). They are saber-rattling to beat the band now, trying to influence our elections. The fact that there are NO muslims in North Korea, yet they are intimately connected to the bad actors of the ME makes it even more clear that this is at bottom a global economic issue that is being manipulated by the islamo-fascists, just another version of the Nazis and communists. In Iran they do have a national presence so I look to them as the next hot spot.
