How about UK, Australia, Spain, and Poland?  Who cares that Canada didn't participate.  What difference would that have made anyway?  Usually, when a dictator is gotten rid of, whether by his own people or by foreign powers, it's a nasty affair.  Many people end up dead.

Who killed more Iraqis: Saddam Hussein or George W. Bush?

Let me answer your question with another question.

There are too many mass graves in Iraq which were dug to bury the victims of Saddam Husseins fanatical, murderous, impulses. How many had to be dug to bury Iraqis as a result of the Iraq invasion under George Bush?

The answer, is of course, 0.

Saddam Hussein committed not 1, but 2 genocides, gassing the Sunni Kurds in Northern Iraq and killing the Marsh Shia Arabs in the South, in conjunction with draining the marshes these people lived around, committing one of the most egregious environmental crimes ever recorded.

It is true, that over 100,000 Iraqis died after the invasion, but this was primarily a result of sectarian violence, stoked by both extremists in Iran and Al Queda types who came to Iraq in order to kill Shia Arabs, Sunni Kurds, and Sunni Arabs who didnt think like them. American forces, operating under the leadership of GWB, did more to protect the Iraqi people from each other then any other fanatic in place.

I dont think there can be any parallel drawn, or any real comparison made between the two, nor is, the rather callous term of "body count" any kind of "draw" between the two.

Saddam Hussein was a Stalinist, a sociopath, and a murderer.

George Bush was many things, but he didnt kill the Iraqi people.

If Saddam was killing the Iraqi people then he was doing it with the help of the US who were his friends. You're an uninformed and sick person. But at least you're still too immature to understand you support evil.

According to the CIA's department head in Iraq at the time, the US did and it led to questioning whether it was Iran or Iraq that was guilty at Anfal.

Look up Stephen Pelletiere for the whole story before you go getting too smart by half!

Canada was involved in the Gurlf war and our country and soldiers are as guilty as Americans. Canada refused to take part in the second Iraq war.


Kuwait was involved, were they guilty too?

Yes. Kuwait was coerced into slant drilling into Iraqi oil fields at the request of the US. And other transgressions committed against Iraq that we won't get into right now.

Then when Saddam declared his intention to invade Kuwait. April Glaspie gave Saddam the greenlight.

It was all a setup by the US to justify war on  Iraq and was no more legitimate than the next war against Iraq.

No problem Ruby, it's all a part of your education. The gassings at Halabja.

You provided me with one person's opinion, Don.  Notice at the top where it says, "Opinion."
